Libraries will be a thing of the past, with the internet. Same with schools. Interesting, i did not receive a ballot. Wonder why?

All you renters, prepare for your rent to go even higher next Month.

Cheers

And residents of Mountain View have to pay $75 per year to access those libraries.

I like our local library just fine.

If you don't live in "unincorporated areas of the county and the cities of Campbell, Cupertino, Gilroy, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Milpitas, Monte Sereno, Morgan Hill and Saratoga" then you didn't get a ballot because the tax doesn't affect you.

"will continue to pay".... No increase, just a continuance at the current rate.
