Referendum: Extend library property tax

Nonpartisan referendum on ballot of all Union County voters

Since 1988, Union County voters have approved a referendum for a 1/2 millage ad valorem tax for a special dependent taxing district for the purpose of funding a library in Union County. The library referendum is on the ballot every two years for its continued funding.

The library, located in Lake Butler, has grown from a 1,400 square-foot building in 1990 to the current 9,000 square-foot facility that was completed in 2009. The library currently houses about 40,000 books and materials and offers access to thousands more e-book titles. There are 15 public access computers at UCPL, as well as free wifi. The library hosts a wide array of programming, including weekly preschool storytime programs, summer events for children of all ages, and teen and adult programs. (Source: newriverlibrary.org/ucpl)
