The Library Board of Trustees voted on January 10 to ask voters to approve a $25M referendum that will be on the April 4 consolidated election ballot. The new ballot question asks voters to approve a limiting rate increase that will fund a renovation of the current building, an addition, equipment and furnishings and it will provide funds to operate the expanded facility.
