If YES: The Proposition Passes

If the Proposition passes, the Library can continue to support the community’s priorities, providing access to information and educational opportunities for all, to include:

Supporting youth education, preparing our community for tomorrow’s jobs by:

  • Increasing support of early development tools and classes for parents, babies and toddlers, preparing them for success in school
  • Further investing in afterschool STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) classes for K-12 youth
  • Adding internship opportunities for teens in all locations

Increasing physical and digital collections of books and other materials providing:

  • Faster access to popular materials and reduced wait times
  • An increased selection of diverse materials

Improving and preserving all library facilities by:

  • Creating more meeting, programming and quiet areas for reading, studying and collaborating
  • Investing in up-to-date computers, Wi-Fi, software and technology learning
  • Providing additional, comfortable seating and outlets for personal devices
  • Addressing routine needs to increasingly aging buildings

Increasing hours of operation by:

  • Restoring Sunday hours in 5 locations
  • Providing more consistent open hours for each location

Aligning salaries, after nine years without cost of living increases, to match the local region and industry
