- Voters are asked to raise the tax rate 15 cents, from 25 cents per $100 of assessed property value to 40 cents.

Library officials want to build a new, main facility on 6.24 acres on Midlothian Road, north of Route 176 near Mundelein. The building would be 56,000 square feet.

The village gave the library the land in 1996. It had been donated to the village by developers who specified it be used for a library or similar community facility.
