Augusta residents approved a bond to expand and renovate Lithgow Library Tuesday. According to the KJ, Voters approved a proposal to borrow $8 million to nearly triple the size of the city’s historic public library by a vote of 2,153 to 461, an 82 % margin of victory. The $8 million bond will be paired with private money raised and pledged to expand and renovate the library. City Manager William Bridgeo said construction would likely start next spring, and take between 12 and 24 months to be fully complete.(KJ)
