Paw Paw District Library
The Library saves taxpayers money!

To take advantage of low interest rates, the Library Board refinanced the 2011 building bond. Through refinancing, the Library lowered the interest rate on its building bond to 1.78%.  Interest savings will be passed on to taxpayers by a decrease in their library taxes.  Over the bond's 20-year life, library district taxpayers will save $756,521.  The Library Board, Administration, and Staff are grateful for taxpayers' generous support and are committed to managing library funds well.
