A Peter White Public Library millage proposal will be on the November ballot for Marquette Township, Chocolay Township and West Branch Township. Renewal of the current township library service millage will be a rate of 1.0 mils – or as reduced by the Headlee Amendment.

The library millage will go toward the continued support of Peter White Public Library and its services, including 24-hour access to the eLibrary, material lending and curbside pickup, and many online and in-person event programming for adults and children. It’s important to note that these ballot proposals do not increase property taxes. Each simply renews the current service agreement.

The Peter White Public Library is the largest public library in the Upper Peninsula. In addition to serving the City of Marquette residents, PWPL provides contracted-services for Chocolay, Ewing, Marquette, Sands, Skandia, Turin, Wells and West Branch Townships. The service population includes 36,000 people.
