Flower Library Considers Asking City Schools For Help

Posted: Updated:

Watertown's Flower Memorial Library needs more money to buy things such as books, DVDs and magazines.

Library board president Carolyn Weldon says city funding for the materials budget has dropped over the last few years. 

This year, the library gets $13,000 to pay for materials. Now, they're looking at the Watertown City School District for help. 

At its board meeting Tuesday night, members discussed putting it on the school ballot.

"It might be possible to replace our materials budget, or offset our materials budget cuts, with a new tax from the school district," Weldon said.

Weldon says the school district is willing to work with the library board. 

Members still have to decide how much money they would want to raise and if the proposal would make it on this year's ballot in May.
