At the time, it was the largest bond measure ever passed for a library levy, anywhere in the country.</p><p>Now, Seattle is going back to voters with <a href="http://your.kingcounty.gov/elections/contests/measureinfo.aspx?cid=45474&amp;eid=1252">Proposition 1</a> on the August ballot. And it might be the first time some library-lovers are saying &lsquo;not so fast.&rsquo;</p><p> Fri, 03 Aug 2012 12:00:25 +0000 Bellamy Pailthorp 5857 at http://kplu.org Seattle voters love libraries…would Prop 1 take advantage of them?
