Shreve Memorial Library system running expenses faces vote in Sat, Ap21, Caddo election

The Shreve Memorial Library system in Caddo Parish says they will have to shut down all 21 libraries if 2 items on Saturday's ballot do not pass, says

One item goes towards buying new books and supplies; the second goes to the operating budget.

The Caddo Parish Tax Assessor estimates if they both pass it would cost the average Caddo Parish homeowner about $70 a year.

"These propositions are vital to the library. They are not new taxes. Your taxes will not go up," said Shreve Memorial's Ivy Woodard-Latin.
