The Library bond proposal has been approved!

Voters passed the initiative 64% to 36% on Tuesday, August 7, 2018.

Thank you to everyone who voted.

We Listened. 

Following the failed 2014 proposal, a survey was mailed to every district resident. Over 63% were in favor of a new building, although many felt the initial proposal was too large and too expensive. Follow-up surveys and focus groups confirmed the need for a new facility, and prioritized barrier-free accessibility and more space for books and programs.

The new library building has been designed to achieve the goals presented by the community and has the capacity to evolve as technology and community needs change.

The new building would be located on the vacant lot on the north side of Center Street in Douglas, which was purchased by the Library in 2014.
