Levy Boosts Warren-Trumbull Library

WARREN, Ohio – Voters showed their support of the Warren-Trumbull County Public Library last fall by passing a new revenue stream to ensure a sustainable future for the library system.

“We are very grateful to the community for supporting our additional 0.4 -mill levy request,” says library director Jim Wilkins. 

The levy will generate $985,172 annually, which will fund library materials. These include digital resources, improvements to the libraries’ infrastructure such as HVAC systems and technology, and construction of additional space at the Warren Library to house expanded programming for children and teens as well as more community-meeting areas.

The Warren-Trumbull County Public Library encompasses libraries in Brookfield, Cortland, Howland, Liberty, Lordstown and Warren. A bookmobile travels throughout Trumbull County and community outreach services homebound individuals, daycares, and preschools. A 24/7 website is available at WTCPL.org. 

Library customers borrowed more than one million items in 2019:   books, e-books, DVDs, CDs, magazines, audiobooks and electronic resources, Wilkins says. Cardholders can download and enjoy digital content on their personal e-readers, smartphones or tablets at no cost through dedicated apps or through WTCPL.org. Auto renew, a new feature, offers no-hassle renewal of most library materials.
