Whenever (1) a public library is established according to law after the date of establishment of a regional system of cooperating libraries in which such public library is included as a part of the taxing district of the regional system of cooperating libraries and (2) if the governing body of such public library has regularly levied one-fourth mill or more of tax for support of said public library for a period of not less than two years, then, such governing body may petition the state library advisory commission for exclusion from the regional system of cooperating libraries taxing district. Such petition for exclusion shall be presented to the state library advisory commission not later than November 15 of each year. Such petition shall include but shall
not be limited to the following:
(a) The official name of the public library;
(b) The official name of the governing body and the name of the county in which such public
library is located;
(c) The number of persons served by the public library within the taxing district supporting
such public library;
(d) Official evidence of support by tax levy for a period of not less than two years;
(e) Evidence of adequacy of service by such public library;
(f) Evidence of the legality of establishment of such public library;
(g) Any other information as may be required by the state library advisory commission.
The state library advisory commission shall within thirty (30) days after the receipt of a petition for exclusion set a date for a hearing to consider said petition.
If the petition meets the requirements for making such petition and if exclusion will do no manifest harm to the regional system of cooperating libraries, the state commission may enter its order excluding such taxing district from the regional system. Such order shall be filed with the state librarian and the governing body of the regional system of cooperating libraries (Authorized by K.S.A. 1968 Supp. 75-2552; effective Jan. 1, 1969.)
