Please visit the Collinsville Library's Open House Dec. 6th (Monday 6:30-8pm) for more election and Library information (and refreshments). The two items on the Dec. 14th ballot are a .8-millage increase and a $79.1 million bond package. The cost is estimated at $2 per month for a home owner with a $90,000 valuation. The funds will benefit all Tulsa County County Libraries and build a new Central Library in Tulsa with more space, parking and easy expressway access near 11th and Denver.
