Measure C

I had the daunting task of searching the Internet for various membership organizations. With my computer, that meant a lot of finger tapping as I waited for things to “render.”

Instead, I went on a hot summer day to our wonderful library. It was cool and bright. The librarians were more than helpful. I sat at a desk, spread out my materials, and learned more than hoped for.

Library. Resource. Comfort. Ours.

C = Check it out. Vote YES! on Measure C.

I am a firm believer in just compensation for governmental taking of private property, but Measure D is a case of using a nuclear device to crack walnuts. All true private property advocates should oppose this outrageous measure. If implemented, it will delay any final resolution of this matter by virtue of the numerous court challenges that will take years to resolve.

Measure C, the library tax, is an opportunity for all patriots to invest in the welfare of their country. Education is the foundation of democracy, and libraries are essential to the educational process. Yes on C!

We have seen great accomplishments made in services to all ages by our county library system following the passage of Measure B in 1998. This support of one-eighth of a cent sales tax expires this year.

The Nevada County branch of the American Association of University Women urges all voters to show pride in our libraries by voting “yes” on Measure C as they cast their ballot for the November election. Let’s continue the services we currently enjoy.

With the completion of the fabulous new library at Bear River High School, not only the students but also the community have a wonderfully enhanced amenity for learning and recreation. No longer do local residents need to drive to Nevada City or Auburn for library facilities. If, however, Measure C fails to pass, funding will no longer be available for community staffing and, therefore, the library will be reserved only for students and faculty. Please vote yes for Measure C!
