” Solano County Library will host a variety of events in January as part of its annual “Promises Made, Promises Kept” celebration.The events mark the 2012 passage of Measure L – the one-eighth of a cent sales tax that comprises almost a quarter of the library system’s funding.Eighty percent of voters chose to extend the sales tax for libraries in Solano County. The tax was first passed in 1998.“Keeping the promises of more books, more hours and more services for youth was difficult during the recession years. But it was vital that we maintained services, especially during those very difficult times,” said Bonnie Katz, Solano County’s director of library services, in a press release.”
