Library Survey

Posted by novometro on August 2, 2006

Before deciding to put a bond measure on November’s ballot, the Oakland Public Library commissioned a survey (see the following entry) gauging the public’s willingness to pay for a new main library, and renovations to old libraries. The results demonstrate the library will be lucky if it convinces voters to approve an extra $39 in taxes for every $100,000 of assessed property value to pay for a new main library at the Henry J. Kaiser convention center, in addition to renovations at branch libraries.

Conducted by research firm Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, and Associates, the survey includes the unsurprising information that 39 percent of people surveyed believe that Oakland “has gotten pretty seriously off on the wrong track.”
