  2.  No bonds shall be issued in an amount in excess of five percent of the value of taxable, tangible property in the county library district, as shown by the last completed assessment for state and county purposes, nor shall such indebtedness be incurred unless it has been approved by the vote of the constitutionally required percentage of the voters of the county library district voting on the question at a municipal election.

  3.  Before incurring any indebtedness as authorized in this section, the county library board shall provide for the collection of an annual tax on all taxable, tangible property in the county library district sufficient to pay the interest and principal of the indebtedness as they shall fall due and to retire the same within twenty years from the date contracted.

  4.  If, upon the returns from the election, which shall be certified to the county commission, it appears that the question to incur or increase such indebtedness has been assented to by the constitutionally required percentage of the voters voting on the question, the county commission shall enter of record a brief recital of the returns and shall declare that the county library board may issue bonds of the county library district in a total amount not in excess of that authorized by the voters.  The bonds shall be issued in denominations of not less than one hundred dollars, or some multiple thereof, payable in not more than twenty years from the date they bear, bearing interest from date at a rate not exceeding the rate per annum authorized by law.  All bonds shall be signed by the chairman of the county library board, attested by the signature of the secretary, and each bond shall have impressed thereon the corporate seal of the county library district.
