Libraries provide essential services through their focus on learning and skill building. Libraries are also an economic benefit to communities with their connection to job creation, income and wage increases. With an average tax bill of $1,299.30 (excluding Municipal Service Taxing Units (MSTU)) $25.99 goes to Library services. Of that, $20.79 is for expert staff and $5.20 is for collections and equipment.
