Libray system worth yes vote
As the election on Feb. 4 arrives, I truly hope that people will feel the need to be supportive of Proposition 1 King County Library Systems $158 million capital improvement bond.
The library is of great value. Libraries not only provide books, they provide newspapers, magazines, films, maps, photographs, computer software and on-line databases, just to name a few. Libraries collect and provide access to all of these materials, supplying equal access to knowledge and information, regardless of anyones standing in society. People can use the libraries for work, pleasure, school and to learn.
It seems a small price to pay only $16 per year for a $200,000 home, and $24 per year for a $300,000 home. With the libraries becoming crowded and in need of more space, this little amount of money would be used for the best. I certainly hope that citizens will realize how significant this is, and how much this small cost is needed, and decide to support Proposition 1.
