Board Announces No Increase in Library Tax Levy

The Board of Trustees of The Richards Library is pleased to announce that, after a review of the Library’s budget for FY 2022, the Board has decided that there will be no increase in the Tax Levy for the Library. The budget will remain the same for 2022 as it is for 2021, which is $214,030.00. The Board would like to thank all of our patrons for their generous support, especially over this very tough year. We will continue to expand our services and programming to serve you. Thank you again!
