DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. -- Two bond measures to form library districts in Douglas County have been passed by voters, after all the libraries in the county were forced to close last year because of a lack of funding.

The Lower Umpqua Library District for the Reedsport area passed, with 58 percent approval.

In Drain, the North Douglas Library District passed with an overwhelming majority, 76 percent.

Elected Library Board Member Anne Campbell said the large approval rating just shows how much their community cares.

“It shows that Drain is a community that is willing to invest in the future and the wellbeing of its citizens, and they’ve shown that time and time again. All of us are proud to be members of this community.”

Campbell said they hope to reopen the library either at the end of the year or the beginning of next year.
