DALLAS — Voters in Little Rock approved a renewal of a bond program Tuesday that will provide the Central Arkansas Library System with up to $24 million of new money for new and expanded facilities.

Almost 90% of the 5,200 ballots cast favored the plan that will reduce the library’s property tax rate in 2013 to 0.9 mills from the current 1 mill, and extend the tax for another four years. Less than 5% of the city’s 115,000 registered voters cast ballots.
