A Granite City Six Mile Regional Library District Bond Issue proposition was decidedly approved on the April 9, 2013 election ballot in Madison County, which is in Illinois.

This measure authorized the Six Mile Regional Library District, which serves Granite City, to increase its debt by $1,680,000 through issuing general obligation bonds in that amount in order to fund the remodeling, repairing, equipping and improvement of the existing library buildings and sites.[1] This bond money will be used to provide the local matching portion required to qualify for a $2.2 million grant from the Illinois State Library. According to library district director this measure will not increase property taxes in the district, as the debt would be paid back out of the existing building and maintenance levy.[2]
