The Geauga County Public Library has seen a lot of growth since 1963, and as community needs change, we continue to evolve to serve patrons. This November 7th, we are reaching out to voters to help us fund capital improvements across all our facilities.
We are putting a half-mill bond issue on the ballot. This costs Geauga homeowners of a $100,000 house approximately $16.00 per year. That’s less than the equivalent of many hard-bound bestselling books at Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
