ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) — Aberdeen residents have approved a bond package to finance an $8 million public library.

The American News reports that unofficial results from Tuesday’s election show the measure passing with 60 percent approval. Nearly 4,000 people voted.

The City Council adopted the bond financing ordinance in late September, but people who questioned the cost launched a petition drive to refer the matter to voters.

The project includes $6.2 million in city financing and $1.5 million from the Alexander Mitchell Public Library Foundation.
