Did You Know?

The Crawford County Library System has not had an income increase since 1998. During the 20 years since that increase, several items have taken a toll on the library system budget such as:

  •      inflation (price of 1 gallon of gas in 1998 was $1.06 -- in 2019 it is $2.59 per gallon)
  •      minimum wage increase (minimum wage in 1998 was $5.15/hr --in 2019 it is $9.25/hr)
  •      costs of digital subscriptions
  •      costs of maintaining computers/equipment/programs

Do you know how much you pay in property tax to the library system? It is on your tax receipt.

On property valued at $100,000 you pay $28 per year at the current rate of 1.4 mills.

Please take our survey, it's available below the best seller titles on this page.

Hooray!  Mountainburg Library has a new sign!

 

 

 

 

Hooray! Mountainburg Library has a sign! We’re so grateful to those of you who donated or volunteered to help us raise money for this project, especially our wonderful Friends of the Library group. Thanks also to Jared Graham of Boulder Designs of NWA for making this beautiful sign for us! And to the city of Mountainburg for helping us dig the footing. We also remember Sue Yount today, since we built the sign in her memory for her many years of service to the Mountainburg Public Library. The dust is still settling on the sign and we have a little dirt to put back in place, but we’re so glad to be able to serve as we do here in Mountainburg, providing resources and library services for young and old alike. Now that you know where we are, stop by and see us!
