A White Pigeon Township Library Levy Renewal measure was on the August 7, 2012 ballot in the township of White Pigeon, which is in St. Joseph County.

This measure sought to renew the current library levy which is set at a rate of $.30 per $1,000 of assessed value for a further four years in order to continue to pay for library operational cots in the township.[1] Township officials have stated that without the renewal services would have to be cut at the library, but many residents rely on internet or books offered. The current levy provides around 30 percent of the library's annual budget.[2] It was approved.
