Multnomah County Measure 26-125

(Library Levy Rollover)

Vote YES

Every day, about 35,000 people use Multnomah County’s 19 library branches in person or online. That’s about twice as many people that attend the average Timbers game. And library users are less prone to off-key, profane caterwauling.

Although they are a basic county service like jails and mental-health services, libraries have their own special revenue stream. About two-thirds of the library’s budget comes from a special levy, which expires June 30. This measure would continue the current rate of 89 cents per $1,000 of assessed valuation ($222.50 annually on a home with $250,000 assessed value).
