 2013 Bond Election - Prop 3
Print
Library Facilities

The City Council has called an election for Nov. 5 for the issuance of tax bonds for City public safety, park and recreational, and library purposes. The estimated costs, proposed locations, proposed projects and proposed descriptions below represent possible uses of such bond proceeds. The actual projects constructed with bond proceeds are subject to change based on future economic, market and other conditions.

Proposition 3
The City could use $23.2 million in bond proceeds from this proposition to build a new main library, and renovate the existing library or build a new branch library.

The Round Rock Public Library has been at its current location, 216 E. Main St., since 1980. Following voter approval of bonds in 1996, the library expanded to its current size of 43,000 square feet from 11,000 square feet. In addition to books, the library offers public meeting rooms; study rooms; public access computers with printers; audiobook, music CDs, DVDs and downloadable books; reference assistance and databases; adult, teen and children’s programming; a computer classroom, genealogy, historic collection and more.

A Master Plan (PDF) for library services completed in July noted the Library does not meet Texas Public Library Standards for adequate library space and parking.

With additional space, the library is proposing to expand its core services to children, teens and adults, as well as technology and more types of meeting spaces and program rooms. Some of the proposed new collections could include health and wellness, do-it-yourself, financial planning and investment and travel, and new services for small businesses.

The proposed branch could include the same services as the main branch, with the exception of genealogy and local history.
