Hackbarth, Algona, was the winner of the colored TV set given away at Schultz Bros, in the drawing held Friday. Would benefit all libraries in the county The Kossuth County Board of Supervisors met Friday. T; H. tirischilles, president of the Board of Directors of the Algona Public Library, Librarian Catherine Phillips and Mrs. Edward Boyken, of Titonka, who represented nine other Kossuth towns which have libraries, appeared before the County Board regarding a possible .levy on the taxable property OUTSIDE, of cities and towns. The library committee recommended that one-third (1/3) mill • be appropriated which would raise $19,067.91. It was further recommended that the,money be divided as follows: two 'thirds (2/3) to be divided equally among the participating libraries and one-third (1/3) to be prorated according to each library's budget. This proposal does not penal- ze smaller libraries, and at the same time recognizes and encourages those communities that have already raised considerable money themselves for their libraries. A County Library Appropriation would make library service available to all rural residents; At present city and town libraries are supplying service to rural people, either for a small fee, which is insufficient to pay for the service, or for no fee at all. School reorganization and easy transportation are"''' • bttri'gfng great numbers of these rural people 1 to the town libraries; Rural residents should be helping to pay'for this governmental service. THE MONEY, if made available, would be received at the beginning of the next tax year after it is approved. However, there is $20,000 federal money available to the first four libraries who get county appropriation. They can have $5,000 on July 1 to tie them over until the beginning of the next tax year. Twenty-nine counties in Iowa have county appropriations, which vary up to $52,000. There are now at least 20 more counties in the state working toward tliis goal. Fenton, Ledyard and Lone Rock have no library facilities at all. Two towns, Algona and Swea City, have library buildings. The other towns have a oom in the school, town hall, ity hall, above a city garage, ity building, or a former office 'or which taxes must be paid. The Wesley library has an an- lual budget of $300 per year so t is kept open only three hours a week with volunteer help. Bancroft has one paid employee and volunteer help to keep open ten lours a week — their circula- ,ion was 11,000 for 1965. Lu- Verne had a circulation of 3,500 for last year with a paid employee and volunteer help to be open two afternoons a week. BECAUSE LuVerne and West Bend are divided between two counties, money received by them would be pro-rated two- thirds to LuVerne and one-third to West Bend. If the proposed millage levy is accepted the Lu- Verne library would receive $1,085.85; West Bend, $664.69. Other communities would receive: Algona, $5014.30; Bancroft, $2,092.51; Burt, $1518.46; Lakota, $1496.21; Swea City, $2107.14; Titonka, $1867.47; Wesley, $1,457.43; Whittemore, $1763.85. For comparison between the amount of circulation, hours open, and money to be received by the libraries who would receive the highest amount of money: Algona has a circulation of 87,065 for 1965 and is open 41Va hours a week; Swea City circulation, 17,220, and is open 15 The contest was held Tuesday, March 29, at the USDA meeting room.
