Learn about the Library Millage

On the November 6, 2018 election ballot, the Ypsilanti District Library will request 0.7 mills of operating funds for 12 years.

The Impact

If the millage passes, YDL will improve technology and expand collections and services. If the millage does not pass, YDL will need to make cuts, including Sunday hours and Bookmobile service.

The Cost

The average homeowner will pay less than $50 per year. For property owners in Ypsilanti and Ypsilanti Township, this is a reduction compared to the average rate of the 1999 library bond, which expires this year.

If approved, YDL would build a third branch on North Harris Road, giving Superior Township and Willow Run residents easy access to a full-service library.
