Prop 3: Vote “Yes” to Keep Spokane Libraries Open

The City of Spokane is facing a five hundred thousand dollar deficit in the library system and we will have to close the Hillard and East Central branches unless new revenue is found.

Spokane Public Libraries play a vital role in our communities to provide grade school children with a safe, educational environment outside of school and in the summer.  This is particularly true in low-income neighborhoods where educational materials are often not available at home.

Prop 3: The Library Levy will generate the revenue to keep branches open and operate 40 hours a week.  The Levy is minimal.  It is only seven cents for every 1,000 dollars of access property value.  Someone who owns a one hundred and fifty thousand dollar home will only pay $10.50 a year to help save our libraries and keep them open.

That is less than one book costs if you go to the book store.  We are asking you to sacrifice one book next year to keep our libraries open for all of Spokane.
