The town has donated the building the library is now in and picks up the bill for util- ties and maintenance. Aside from fees and overdue book levies, the library has re- ceived a annual grant from he town, a smaller grant from .he municipal district and a pro- vincial government contribu- ion to cover the annual cost of books.
