A Levy is More Than a Campaign: Winning Begins and Ends with Vision and Value

November 8, 2016 was a monumental day for the Mid-Continent Public Library (MCPL), located in the Kansas City metropolitan area. Three counties in the area - Jackson, Clay and Platte - included library levy Proposition L on their ballots. The library levy requested an 8 cent increase that would raise property taxes from 32 cents to 40 cents per $100 of assessed valuation, adding an estimated $9.5 million to the Library’s current annual operating budget of $42 million.
