Elaine Munday followed the push for the recent library tax in Louisville. And while the Taylor County Public Library director was surprised the tax failed, she'd been there before.

The Louisville library tax was to pay for a major expansion of the Louisville Free Library system. The tax failed with 143,318 votes to 70,328.
