County support for library not enough


January 17, 2019

To The Eagle:

I was pleased to discover that the county will be providing some funding for Cathlamet Public Library in 2019. They have budgeted $3,000 for the town library and the same amount for Johnson Park's library room. The library board had voted for a greater increase for out-of-town library cards in December when it was told that there would be no county support, and had reconsidered for a lesser increase at the January meeting since our library is open less hours than similar size libraries with higher fees. The new county support, while welcome, will not be enough to reverse the need for the new card fees. Donations are always welcome.

Carol Blix, Librarian
