As of November 9, with only 18,000 city ballots left to count, City of Spokane Bond Proposition 1 is passing with 63% approval from Spokane voters, approving $77M for library construction and renovation projects citywide. This approval will enable Spokane Public Library to serve more customers, modernize our aging buildings and make much needed upgrades to technology.
Spokane Public Schools Bond Proposition 1 is also passing with 67% approval. We look forward to deepening our partnership in our planned projects with Spokane Public Schools at Hillyard/Shaw, Libby Center and with Spokane Virtual Learning.
This is an historic moment for us and the community. We are encouraged and enthusiastic about the future of the library in Spokane and look forward to continuing to serve you in the years to come as we inspire a city of lifelong learners.
Thank you for your support.
