Library Improvements Included in the
2017–2022 Bond Election
Based on the recommendations of 160 people who served on committees that studied the future needs of San Antonio, the Mayor and City Council selected ballot-measures for an $850 million General Obligation Bond Program.
On May 6, 2017, voters will decide on six separate Propositions to fund improvements to streets, bridges, drainage, flood control, parks, public safety facilities, etc. “Proposition 4” includes 13 projects that would rehabilitate and improve libraries and community centers. Library projects include:
If It’s Texas (Library Association Conference), It’s a Big Deal!
Thousands of Texan librarians and vendors will converge on the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center April 19–22, and they need our help: go to www.txla.org/volunteer-conference to sign up for more than 15 choices from “managing access to authors” to working in the TLA Store, or checking in other volunteers. Volunteer at least 4 hours and you will receive an Exhibits Only pass (but parking is not validated).

The forms to report revenue deposited, and to request reimbursement or payments have changed! ALL officers and book sale coordinators of Friends groups will attend one of the 2-hr sessions that will be held at the Central Library, Brook Hollow, Pan American and Great Northwest Branch libraries. If you cannot attend the class at the location “closest” to you, schedule yourself to attend one of the others: dates and times of the classes will be sent to all officers soon.
