Mayor Don Gerard said, while the library already has strong city support, he's open to a long-range funding plan. People in the community say the library is the foundation of education and needs a second look.
"The library is just kind of the heart of the community. 3,000 people a day, people just love the library. It's an information source," director Marsha Grove said.
The city council voted to move forward with the discussion and look at revenue options.
