Renew library tax millage

On February 27, voters in Bloomfield Township will be asked to support the renewal of a 10-year millage for Bloomfield Township Public Library which expired in 2023. The millage will remain the same, at .5047 mills for another 10-year period, 2024-2033, inclusive, and library officials estimate that this millage will raise $2.5 million in 2024, which amounts to 27 percent of the library's total revenues. That is almost a third of the library's annual revenues.


Bloomfield Township Public Library plays an important role in the community, offering not only a collection of over 300,000 books, movies, CDs, and more, but a wide range of programming, from entertainment to educational, that is accessible to all ages. During last winter's ice storm, when many residents experienced days-long power outages, the library opened its doors as a refuge. Currently, with eight days of voter approved early voting, the township library is serving as one of Oakland County's early voting sites.


Library Executive Director Tera Moon noted that the loss of these millage dollars would force the library to make significant cuts, from library services to refurbishment of the facility. Vote YES to maintain this cultural community icon. ­
