August 27, 2008 · Updated 4:55 PM
Kathy Bullene, managing librarian at the Arlington Library, and George Boulton, chair of the citizens committee for a new library, speak about the proposed new library for Arlington at the Arlington-Smokey Point Chamber of Commerce meeting March 11. On Monday, March 17, Arlington City Council approved resolution No. 769 in support of the special election to form the Arlington Library Capital Facilities Area and to issue general obligation bonds of not more than $8.8 million to construct, furnish and equip a new library. The proposed new library will be located on property owned by the city for that purpose across from the current library on North Washington Avenue. With this approved resolution and the expected approval of a similar resolution by Snohomish County Council on March 26, Sno-Isle Library System will then be able to move forward in the process of running a special election on May 20 to seek voter approval for the funding of the proposed new library. For information about the proposal, stop by the library at 135 N. Washington Ave., or call Mary Kelly at Sno-Isle, 360-651-7030.
