(b) The board is authorized to levy a tax of not to exceed 5 mills on all tangible property in the library district to fund the budget as determined by the library district board. The tax shall be levied and collected in like manner as other taxes and shall be kept by the library district in a separate fund to be known as the library fund of the library district. The tax levy shall not be considered a tax levy of the city of Eudora or the Eudora township.

(c) The board of the library district shall have the authority to increase the mill levy authorized by subsection (b) on each dollar assessed tangible valuation for the property of the library district for the acquisition, maintenance and support of a free public library by adoption of a resolution. Such resolution shall be published once each week for two consecutive weeks in a newspaper of general circulation in the county. If within 30 days after the last publication of the resolution, a petition signed by not less than 5% of the qualified electors in the library district is filed in the office of the county election officer requesting an election on the mill levy increase from the prior year, no increase levy shall be made unless the question is submitted to and approved by a majority of the voters of the library district voting at an election. The election shall be called and held in the manner provided under the general bond law. If the question is approved, the levy shall be certified and placed on the tax rolls.
