Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A proposed property tax that would have helped Henderson libraries was shot down on Election Day.
The ballot issue would have raised property taxes by about $10 a year to save two public libraries.
Now, two of Henderson's six libraries will close by the end of the month because officials say they can't afford to keep them open.
One is at the Galleria Mall, which is leased to them. That branch will close November 21. The Lydia Malcolm Library will close November 30.
All materials from those libraries will be redistributed or put into storage.
