The Hannibal Free Library Board of Trustees holds its meetings at 6:15pm on the third Monday of each month at the Library. The public is always welcome to attend. Following the March meeting on the 20th, the Turstees will have a budget forum at 7:00pm. The budget will be explained in detail covering both revenue and expenditure sides of the 2017 budget. The Library tax levy will be explained including why the Trustees find it necessary, after no increase in the levy since 2012, they must propose an increase this year from $45,000 to $75,000. There will be an explanation as to why they feel confident this increase will keep the Library on a sound financial footing until at least 2022. If you have questions or concerns about the Library's 2017 budget or the proposed tax levy increase please attend this budget forum. We hope to see you there.
