Palo Altans Support Library Improvements
Recent surveys show that Palo Alto voters generally favor bond measures to improve the city's libraries.  A poll conducted by the City of Palo Alto in November found that 53% of likely voters would support a $78 million bond measure to renovate library branches and other community facilities.  Another 14% were leaning towards supporting such a measure, totaling the 2/3 majority necessary for passage.  Separately, Libraries Now! surveyed residents in October and found that 65% would support a $60 million bond measure to improve the libraries.  For more information, see the Palo Alto Weekly article.
