    The North Shelby Library District was created in 1988 by an act of the state legislature and a majority vote of the residents of the district to provide library services to an area of Shelby County which had no library and no municipality to support one. The library operates as a 501-c-3, non-profit corporation under the laws of the state and the direction of a five-member board. Board members are elected for staggered; four-year terms by the residents of the district in September of even numbered years and receive no compensation for their service.

    The population of the District is approximately 60,000 people and projected to be 65,000 by 2020. The size of our facility is based on state library standards for libraries serving populations of 50,000. The library's fiscal year runs from October 1 to September 30. Assessment notices are mailed in October to the approximately 24,000 property owners in the District and payment is due by December 31. This fiscal year, 18,000 bills were assessed at the $15 Homestead Rate. All others were assessed at the 1.75 mill non-homesteaded rate.
