> Josephine County Library district:  passed at 52.55%.    Yes, that’s right… after a decade of effort, public funding is finally returning to libraries in Josephine County.  Amazing grace, how sweet the sound…
> Congratulations to the committed library supporters and amazing library staff in these communities—and to the voters who did the right thing.   Sara Charlton and Kate Lasky, you make us ALL proud.
