The resolution shall specify that all indebtedness, including obligations arising from lease-purchase agreements, of the joint library must be fully protected until retired, that all trusts of the library will be continued as specified under current terms, and that all properties of the joint library will be divided as provided in the agreements entered into by the legislative bodies of the governmental units.

(3) Disposition of school district libraries that have been abolished shall be accomplished as provided by law.
