Norfolk Voters to Decide on Library Expansion
NORFOLK - Norfolk voters will decide whether or not to renovate and expand the Norfolk Public Library. The Norfolk City Council voted unanimously earlier this week to place the measure of a half-cent sales tax for 36 months on the November ballot. City Administrator Shane Weidner says the city hopes to raise $7.4 million for the renovation and expansion of the nearly 40-year-old structure. Weidner says the Library’s foundation will work to raise private funds as well. The Norfolk Public Library opened its doors for the first time in 1977.
