As we come up to the election, this is a reminder. Per the Mail Tribune, Jackson County voters approved a bond measure to fund the construction of 15 new libraries in the year 2000. This bond will not be paid off until 2020. These buildings cannot be used for anything other than libraries due to the stipulations of the bond. From Prospect to Ashland, it just makes good sense to keep these buildings open to all. Libraries are community. — Katherine Leppek, Medford
