Library still considering expanded coverage

Lebanon — No decision has been made whether the Lebanon Public Library will join the Thorntown and Hussey-Mayfield Memorial libraries in expanding service into half a dozen Boone County townships.

The Lebanon Library Board meets in regular session at 4:15 p.m. Tuesday at the library, 104 E. Washington St., Lebanon; one agenda item is “county service.”

Lebanon will cooperate with the other libraries “as best we can,” Jane Myers, Lebanon Public Library board of trustees president, told the Boone County Council recently.

Boone County has three tax-funded libraries, and a fourth, the Tri-Area Library in Jamestown, which is operated by volunteers.

Thorntown and Hussey-Mayfield Memorial, in Zionsville, have created a plan to offer library services, for a $35 flat fee, to residents in Clinton, Harrison, Jackson, Jefferson, Perry and Worth townships. No residents in those townships pay taxes to support libraries, but do pay county option income taxes which are distributed to all but the Tri-Area Library.
