See where your tax dollars are spent with Indiana Gateway

Almost all of the money that pays for your library comes from your county taxes. To see those taxes at work, you can use the Indiana Gateway website.

It shows you how much tax support the library receives, your local tax rate, library expenditures, and how all that has changed over time. It also provides financial information for other local government agencies, as well as educational performance data for schools.
