Pass on legacy of libraries

A legacy is defined as something received from an ancestor or from the past. It can refer to a gift of money, personal property or non-material things like a legacy of love, respect or other character traits.

The voting citizens of the cities of Spokane Valley and Millwood have the opportunity to pass on a priceless legacy of libraries to future generations. The approval of the Spokane Valley Library Capital Facility Area is critical to fund this invaluable legacy.

Property owners would pay the equivalent of four lattes per year for this funding, and non-property owners would pay nothing to vote yes on this bond measure. Vote “approved” on your ballot by Aug. 4 to pass on this treasured legacy to our community both now and into the future.
