Sno-Isle Libraries Budget & Funding Information
Community investment is more than buildings.

The budget authorizes spending for all library operations and maintenance including:

Funding Sources
Library Levy
Sno-Isle Libraries receives about 98 percent of its funding for daily operations and maintenance from the general library levy.
The levy affects all properties within the library district in Snohomish and Island counties. The cities of Everett, Bothell and Woodway are not part of the library district.
The library operations levy is collected by county treasurers in Snohomish and Island counties and funds are transferred to Sno-Isle Libraries.

Library Capital Funding
Sno-Isle Libraries is approaching funding capital projects in ways that reflect and align with each community. We are optimizing funding by pursuing a combination of sources – grant funding, capital campaigns, regular levy funds – and reducing the reliance on public bond elections.
