Seattle Votes “YES” on Libraries!

The votes are in — Seattle Proposition 1 has passed! 62% of voters approved the seven-year, $123 million property-tax levy, sending a clear message about the importance of our libraries. Here are some of the benefits for the Library:

·         Service hours will be restored
·         Collections will be rebuilt
·         Computers will be upgraded
·         Buildings neglected after four years of city budget cuts will receive maintainance
·         In 2013, library branches that are now closed on Sundays will reopen
·         Staff will no longer have to take a week-long, unpaid furlough
Thanks to voters and volunteers for your support! Visit your local branch to find out more about how levy funds will make a difference.
