STATE DEPARTMENTS; PUBLIC OFFICERS AND EMPLOYEES - STATE LIBRARY AND LIBRARY SERVICES - REGIONAL SYSTEM OF COOPERATING LIBRARIES. Duane F. Johnson, State Librarian, Topeka, August 7, 1986.
When a county and city are both participating members in a regional system of cooperating libraries, the county may enter into a contract with the city to provide funding for the city library. However, such contract is independent of the provisions for assuring access to the city library for county residents, and the city may not require such county funding in order to assure the library access for county residents. A county mill levy does not affect the regional system tax unless such levy is equal to or greater than the regional system tax.
