Spokane Valley bond seeks $22 million for libraries

Spokane Valley residents will vote again in August on a $22 million bond proposal to build two new library branches and renovate others as the clock ticks on a land deal near Balfour Park. County commissioners last week approved the ballot measure that will be put to voters who are served by Spokane Valley libraries on Aug. 4. The proposal calls for a property tax increase that amounts to roughly 11 cents for every $1,000 of assessed home value for 20 years. That money will pay off bonds used to fund construction of a new library across the street from the old University City Mall, a new branch on Conklin Road and renovations to the Argonne branch as well as improvements in the existing Spokane Valley library on Main Avenue.
