(a) A facility, or any part thereof, acquired, constructed, remodeled, or rehabilitated with grants received pursuant to this chapter shall be dedicated to public library direct service use for a period of at least 20 years following completion of the project.

(b) Any financial interest that the state may have in the land or facility, or both, resulting from the funding of a project under this chapter, as described in subdivision (a), may be transferred by the State Librarian through an exchange for a replacement site and facility acquired or constructed for the purpose of providing public library direct service.

(c) If the facility, or any part thereof, acquired, constructed, remodeled, or rehabilitated with grants received pursuant to this chapter ceases to be used for public library direct service prior to the expiration of the period specified in subdivision (a), the board shall be entitled to recover from the grant recipient, or the successor of the recipient, an amount that bears the same ratio to the value of the facility, or appropriate part thereof, at the time it ceased to be used for public library direct service, as the amount of the original grant bore to the original cost of the facility, or appropriate part thereof. For purposes of this subdivision, the value of the facility, or appropriate part thereof, shall be determined by the mutual agreement of the board and the grant recipient or successor, or through an action brought for that purpose in the superior court.

(d) Notwithstanding subdivision (f) of Section 16724 of the Government Code, any money recovered pursuant to subdivision (c) shall be deposited in the fund, and shall be available for the purpose of awarding grants for other projects.
