Students speaking more than 100 languages are enrolled in Spokane public schools, so it makes sense that Spokane libraries offer foreign language materials. The Hillyard branch has an extensive collection of fiction and non-fiction books, like the Russian language edition of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” shown here. The library system also offers materials in Spanish and Vietnamese.
Spokane libraries can provide a wide variety of materials and services thanks to the support of Spokane voters. On April 25, they can continue library efforts to maintain and expand services by renewing a levy lift of 7 cents per $1,000 property valuation. Voters first endorsed the levy by a 2-1 vote in 2013, and Measure 1 would keep the levy in place for another seven years.
Please vote for Measure 1 April 25 and keep the magic alive.
