St. Louis County Library Renovations Slated for 2014
Taxes generated by the new property tax will fund several upgrades, including new buildings and other renovations for some South County library branches.
Last month a majority of St. Louis County voters said yes to Prop L, but it will be a while before they see upgrades to library infrastructure, Suburban Journals reports.
