If you live in California, you should be getting your June 2006 voter information booklet (novella?) in the mail soon. Ours arrived yesterday, and I immediately started perusing it. Proposition 81 caught my eye right away:
This act provides for a bond issue in an amount not to exceed a total of six hundred million dollars ($600,000,000) to provide funds for the construction and renovation of public library facilities in order to expand access to reading and literacy programs in California’s public education system and to expand access to public library services for all residents of California.
If you believe that a library is part of a community’s infrastructure, and should be cared for as such, vote yes on 81 this June 6.
