Proposed Bond Costs

The Astoria Public Library estimates that the proposed $8 million bond, if passed, would increase the tax rate by $0.57 per $1,000 of assessed value.

A unique opportunity: The original design of the library creates an opportunity to significantly increase interior usable space without increasing its footprint, preserving the exterior historical  character of the library. The proposed design for the remodel is estimated to expand the accessible space from 3,978 square feet to 8,973 square feet - an increase of 126% - without new construction.
