2013 Budget

On Nov. 19, 2012, the City Council approved Mayor Mike McGinn's proposed 2013 budget.

 

The Library's total 2013 operating budget is $63 million, $11.2 million more than the 2012 budget. The $3.4 million capital improvement budget, which is used for major maintenance and asset preservation, is $2.4 million more than in 2012.

 

These increases are largely due to enhanced funding from the $123 million, seven-year Library levy that Seattle voters approved in August 2012 to restore and improve core services.
