Week of August 30 - September 13. 
SPL Executive Director Andrew Chanse outlines the library's plans for the future.

City of Spokane Proposition 1

On November 6, voters will be asked to approve or reject a $77 million bond to fund the construction of 3 new libraries and the renovation of 4 existing libraries. If passed, Downtown and Shadle would get substantial remodels, Indian Trail and South Hill would get makeovers, and we’d build new libraries at Liberty Park, Libby Center and Hillyard. The plans also include the addition of new 24x7 Library kiosks in new neighborhoods. Learn more at
