(Editorial) Spokane Public Libraries play a vital role in our communities to provide grade school children with a safe, educational environment outside of school and in the summer. This is particularly true in low-income neighborhoods where educational materials are often not available at home. To the right is a video of Spokane City Council President Ben Stuckart asking you to vote “yes” on Prop 3, and below is a transcript of the video.
I am asking you to support Proposition 3 on the February ballot. The election is February 12th. Prop 3 is the Library Levy. The Library Levy will keep branches open, because next year we are facing a five hundred thousand dollar deficit in the library system and we will have to close branches unless something is done.
