Investing in Our Future

imaginationStudies show that children who are read to before kindergarten enter school far more ready to learn. Opportunities to play in a visual, story-filled environment are imperative to reaching school readiness goals.

Darby Community Public Library is the only organization in town that offers weekly storytimes, a play area with building blocks, thousands of books for early readers, and resources for parents to help their children succeed. We need your help to keep these services for our children available to all families in our community.

Ballots are now in homes asking you to vote FOR a 3 millage increase for Darby Community Library. This will be about $30,000 per year and will fill in for an unstable source of funding in donations and grants. All of this money will go directly to the library and not the town. More stable funding will help us invest in our future. Vote FOR the millage increase!

Mark your ballot and drop it in the mail today. Or hand deliver to the Ravalli County Election Office, 215 South 4th St., Suite C; Hamilton, MT 59840. Ballots must be received by September 15.
