Letters to the Editor - Library Fee

I read in a previous edition of The New Era that there is a $35.00 per year fee for people who live “out of city limits” to use the library. I am amazed that there is a fee to use the library! Why not levy a tax for residents of the Sweet Home School District so that ALL residents have access to the library? There must be folks who would use the library, who can not afford an extra fee just to access books. Please, give ALL residents the ability to use the “public” library. It’s not very “public” if you have to pay to use it!!
