According to unofficial results from both Cassia and Minidoka counties, about 73.5% of the 310 people who participated in the election voted in favor of the levy while 26.5% voted against the levy. The temporary levy will generate $277,280 in revenue annually for the library over the next two years. According to the ballot measure, this levy will cost taxpayers $40.77 per $100,000 of assessed property value annually. The funding from this levy makes up 51% of the library’s general operating funds and will support various library functions and staff.

According to the ballot measure, the levy will fund software and equipment systems, as well as e-books and other audio and visual materials.

The funds will also pay for a program librarian, the salaries of librarians and support staff, a contracted computer technician and junior resource interns.
