"I don't know. I'd like to hear from the people and have them vote on it. It would be interesting to see what their vote would be," Thaw said. "Up until now, the people of Kanawha County never had an opportunity to make a decision. For 57 years we have taken the money from them. They didn't give it to us, we took it under the flag of education and then handed it over to the library."
School board member Becky Jordon, who also supported the library in its first attempt, said she's undecided on whether she supports the idea of giving it another try.
"I'm unsure of anything right now," she said.
Both Thaw and Jordon are running for reelection to the board in May.
Board members Dennis Davis and Jim Crawford could not be reached by press time.
