"We have been barely scraping by," said Library Board Member Tracy Boland before the board voted to place the referendum on the April 2 ballot. Even if the referendum is approved, she said, "we will still be operating below" the funding levels of other area libraries. "This is a very lean operation. We are being very prudent," she said.
