District 9 Councilman Mr. Shane Mack wants to reduce the library's dedicated parish-wide tax from 10 mills to 5 mills in favor of the Gravity Drainage District 8. If Mr. Mack succeeds in his efforts, the library, our vital and cherished community resource, will be permanently damaged. Losing 50% of the funding will result in multiple branch closures, elimination of most of the library's programs and services, and stopping of all building maintenance.

Please call your councilmen today to let them know how important the library is to our community. Please attend the Library Board of Control Meeting on Tuesday, May 18 at 5 p.m. at the Denham Springs-Walker Branch to voice your support of the library. Thank you.
