Helen Plum Library is a district public Library. A district is responsible for all of it's operations, services, staff, and stewardship of the facility. Our fiscal year runs July 1–June 30. Financial information is available in the links below.
The Library develops a proposed working budget. Drafts of the proposed budget are discussed in a series of Staff and Board meetings. When a final draft is arrived at, the Board approves a working budget.
The legal spending authority is set by the Budget and Appropriations ordinance, proposed in the fall and adopted after a public hearing. Future dates for these meetings will be available on our Library Board page.
