Tangipahoa library plans meetings to discuss March 24 tax renewal

The Tangipahoa Parish Library will host seven town hall meetings to discuss their upcoming millage renewal leading up to the March 24 proposition election.

Starting Jan. 16, the Library system will hold public hearings at each of their six branches to answer questions and outline plans for the millage renewal.

Currently, the Library receives three mills for “improving, maintaining, operating and supporting the Tangipahoa Parish Library and its branches.” The 10-year tax has been on the books for decades and has been critical to provide library services for the public.

Scheduled meeting dates and locations are as follows:
Amite Branch: Jan. 16 at 5 p.m.
Kentwood Branch: Jan. 29 at 5 p.m.
Loranger Branch: Feb. 5 at 5 pm.
Ponchatoula Branch: Feb. 20 at 5 p.m.
Independence Branch: Feb. 26 at 5 p.m.
Hammond Branch: March 1 at 5 p.m., and March 17 at 10 a.m.
