The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County will ask voters this November to renew its operating levy for ten years rather than the typical five.

The flat, one mill renewal costs the owner of a $100,000 home about $30/year, according to Library Director Kim Fender.

Fender says the library board chose to ask for a ten year renewal for planning purposes.
