The levy lid lift for the Timberland Regional Library is failing in three out of five counties tonight, with Mason County and Pacific counties being the only ones approving. The levy lid lift would have needed to simply pass by 50 percent plus one across all the entire system, but votes are so far behind tonight, it doesn't look good.
Thurston County, 45 percent yes
Mason County, 55 percent yes
Lewis County, 28 percent yes
Grays Harbor, 43 percent yes
Pacific County, 51 percent yes
In addition to Mason and Pacific voting yes, voting inside the city of Shelton went very well tonight (88 percent yes!) for the vote to annex into the Timberland Library system.
The Friends of the Olympia Library will hold a book sale on May 3-4 (Saturday 10-4 and Sunday 1-4) at the Downtown Olympia Timberland Library.
There is also a members only presale on Saturday May 3 beginning at 8a (memberships can be purchased at that time).
Actually memberships can be purchased throughout the sale and whenever you want here.
All of the proceeds from the book sale go to your local library. Please, donate your old and discarded books to the Friends of the Olympia Library.
