Your Library—Your Vote

On Election Day, Town of Chatham voters will have an opportunity to vote on a referendum to increase annual funding for the North Chatham Library Free Library by $35,000. This will be the first increase in 18 years and will help preserve the library’s many free services to the community. The referendum will appear on the back of the ballot. For a taxpayer whose home is now assessed at $300,000, the increase would be about $11 a year, in other words 22¢ a week.
