Any public library board of trustees charged with the title, custody, control, and maintenance of a public library in the state may request the taxing authority of the political subdivision to whose jurisdiction the board is subject to submit to the electors of such subdivision the question of issuing bonds for the purpose of purchasing, erecting, constructing, enlarging, extending, or improving a building for library purposes, including a site therefor, and equipping and furnishing the building. Such request shall be made by resolution adopted by the board, and the resolution shall recite whether notes shall be issued in anticipation of the issuance of such bonds. A copy of the resolution shall be certified by the board to the taxing authority of the subdivision pursuant to section 5705.23 of the Revised Code. The submission to the electors of the question of the issuance of the bonds, the issuance, sale, characteristics, and requirements for the interest and retirement levies, and the method and means for payment of the bonds or notes, if notes are to be issued in anticipation of the issuance of the bonds, shall conform to Section 11 of Article XII, Ohio Constitution, and Chapter 133. of the Revised Code, governing the issuance, sale, characteristics, and levies for, and method and means of payment of, bonds or notes issued by such subdivision pursuant to a vote of the electors. Such bonds or notes shall be issued and sold by the proper officer as is provided by law for the issuance and sale of bonds of the political subdivision to whose jurisdiction the board is subject. The indebtedness created by such bonds or notes constitutes a part of the net indebtedness of such subdivision. The proceeds of the sale of such bonds shall be transferred by the fiscal officer of such subdivision to the board for the benefit of which the bonds were issued and shall be appropriated to and expended only for the purposes for which issued.
