El Cerrito’s Library Measure is on the ballot!

By now you will have heard that Measure B will be on the upcoming November general election ballot. This revenue measure would fund an earthquake-safe library that meets our community’s needs, for years to come. If enacted by the voters, Measure B allows the City to issue up to $30M in general obligations bonds to fund a 21st century library. 

We need your help get the word out to your neighbors why this measure is very important and to vote on it!  We need volunteers to help the Yes on B campaign to spread the message throughout El Cerrito between now and November. Please sign up at the Yes on B website at http://www.elcerritolibrary.org/getinvolved.html.
