City Inside/Out: Library Levy
City Inside/Out: Library Levy

Seattle voters will decide on August 7 whether to support a new $123 million levy to save our public libraries. The beloved system is facing a fifth year of budget cuts in 2013, and if the levy fails, five branches will have to close. But will property owners support this seven-year tax increase? And how will levy funding be spent? We hear from library patrons and branch regional manager Wei Cai, plus Richard Conlin weighs in as Council chair of the library levy. Our studio guests include Councilmember Jean Godden, City Librarian Marcellus Turner and Washington Policy Center Vice-President of Research Paul Guppy. Tune in as we check out a new chapter in the fate of the Seattle Public Library!
