You might know that the Salinas Public Library, in Salinas, California--once home to John Steinbeck was slated to close forever by the end of 2005 if more funding had not been found. Well, this brief note in Library Journal from November 10th links to information on Measure V, recently passed.
Salinas Library will stay open, serving the public.
Measure V also provides funding for public recreation facilities. People are really being civic-minded here, providing opportunities for learning and recreation for ALL the people of Salinas.
Victory for our side.
