Seattle's Library Levy
Premieres Fri., April 27, 7 p.m.
Seattle voters will decide this summer whether to support a new $123 million levy to restore and enhance library services across the city. Will property owners support a seven-year tax increase? Critics contend the tax hike doesn't include enough accountability for how the funds will be spent. We hear from library patrons and branch regional manager Wei Cai, plus Richard Conlin weighs in as Council chair of the library levy proposal. Our studio guests include Councilmember Jean Godden, City Librarian Marcellus Turner and Washington Policy Center Vice President of Research Paul Guppy. Catch past episodes of City Inside/Out.
