The board of county commissioners of any county which has a county library district constitutes the taxing authority of such district and may issue notes and bonds of such district under Chapter 133. of the Revised Code, for the acquisition of land and the construction of buildings and equipment of one or more buildings, but no notes or bonds shall be issued for such purpose except in accordance with the vote of the electors of such district. The proceeds of the sale of any former site, including land or buildings, or both, belonging to the district, may be applied to reduce the amount of the bonds ultimately issued to refund the notes issued under such section. All funds provided by the issue of county bonds or notes, or in any other manner, for the acquisition of property and the construction and equipment of library buildings shall be deposited in a special library fund, which shall be expended only on the order of the board of library trustees of the county library district, to be handled and disbursed in the same manner as other funds of the district. The title of all property so acquired shall be held by the board of library trustees of the county library district, and section 307.03 of the Revised Code shall not apply.
