Thank You

Millage Renewal (Proposal L)

Thank you, Detroit!

On Tuesday, August 5, Detroit voters supported Proposal L, the renewal of the Detroit Public Library's dedicated 4.0 mills. The unofficial results posted by the Detroit Election Commission indicate the proposal received 52,877 "Yes" votes (75.05%) and 17,581 "No" votes (24.95%).

"On behalf of the Detroit Library Commission and the staff of the Detroit Public Library, we thank Detroiters who recognized the important role the Library plays in our community," said Jo Anne G. Mondowney, DPL's Executive Director.  "Their generous support of the Library allows the continuation of our mission to provide accessible information, technology and programs that enhance the quality of life for users of all ages."

The DPL, Michigan's largest public library system, serves as a vital and valued resource through its Main Library, 21 neighborhood branches and a bookmobile. As DPL prepares to celebrate its sesquicentennial in 2015, we look forward to continuing to serve the Detroit community in the years to come
