The be used to sup- not supplant exist- for local public authored by Sen- Thompson (D-Napa was approved by the week on a biparti- goes to the for his signature. e measure is shrinking bud- many localities library staff, cut op- hours postpone new acquisitions and ultimately close libraries throughout the state. "Without an additional source of revenue, many of our commu- nity libraries will be forced to close their doors for the last time," Thompson said. "We have the opportunity to stop this erosion by providing local communities the power to save these trea- sures. This is an effort to provide local voters with the ability to provide the funds necessary to save and enhance libraries in their own communities." According to the California Li- brary Association, public librar- ies in California have the fewest hours of service per capita in the national. Factoring in inflation, per capita support for California public libraries has decreased by almost 20 percent since 1977. Over the past five years, book budgets throughout the state have been slashed by $30 mil- lion. If signed into law by the Gov- ernor, Whompson's measure would generate $780 million for libraries if every county in the state approved a 1/4 percent sales tax increase. A 1/8 percent in- crease would generate $410 mil- lion. The base sales tax in Califor- nia is 7 and 1/4 percent. The current rate varies between counties due to their ability to ask voters for higher rates to pay for additional public services. The highest rate is San Fran- cisco's 8.5%. Thompson's bill would change current law which allows coun- ties to ask voters to approve a 1/ 2 percent sales tax increase for public libraries. Library support- ers believe the current level may be too high for some communi- ties to achieve a 2/3 vote and advocate givingcounties the flex- ibility to place 1/4 or 1/8 percent increases on the ballot. SB 154 is supported by the California Library Association, the California State Association of Counties, the Association of Bay Area Governments, the Cal- ifornia Tax Reform Association, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, Humboldt County and Solano County.

The store is jam packed with furniture, jewelry, lamps, fish- ingpoles, prints and frames, and glassware ranging from 1850 to present.
