The St. Louis County Library is grateful to the voters for passing Proposition L. The results show that residents of the library district approve of the efforts SLCL has made to create an excellent public library system that responds to the needs of our community.
Library Director Charles Pace thanked voters by saying, "We are proud that the voters of the library district had confidence in our vision for taking the St. Louis County Library into the future to benefit our children, families and seniors. The County Library is already one of the finest and most used libraries in the nation and, with these new resources, we will strive to make it the best."
In the months to come, the Board of Trustees will consider which of the projects outlined in the Facilities Master Plan are most pressing and act accordingly. Input from the community will also play an important role in this process.
To all those who voted yes on Proposition L, we say thank you. To those who voted no, we invite you to visit a branch and see how carefully we use the funds entrusted to us. SLCL will continue that prudent use of our resources, keeping the taxpayers of the district in mind foremost just as we have since we opened in 1947.
