K.S.A. 12-1244 authorizes a library district board of directors to call an election for the purpose of building, erecting and equipping a library building and procuring a site therefor. The district may issue bonds to fund the building, equipment and site if the issuance is approved by district electors. In our opinion, K.S.A. 12-1244 includes authority for the district board of directors to call an election for the purpose of issuing bonds to acquire an existing building to be used as a library. cited herein: K.S.A. 12-1244.
