SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- City leaders have decided not to put a $34 million bond measure for a new library on the November ballot in Springfield.

Officials with the Springfield Public Library said they have outgrown their current building, which wasn't built for a modern library.

A survey earlier this year taken by 400 residents found that less then half would support the $34 million construction bond.

The bond would have cost $100 a year in added property taxes for homeowners with an assessed value of $200,000 a year.

City officials said even though the bond may be off the table for November, they could go out for one in the future.

They hope to build it on 5th and A streets.
