Proposed 2018 Library Budget
& Trustee Vote

at Thrall on October 3, 2017

The Public Vote on the proposed 2018 library district budget and election of Trustees will be held from 8:00 am - 8:00 pm on Tuesday October 3, 2017. Polls will be open in the Reading Room of the Middletown Thrall Library (11-19 Depot Street Middletown, NY 10940). Those who wish to vote early before the Library is open can enter the Library from one of two entrances located on the Depot Street side of the building. All registered voters who reside in the Thrall Public Library District are eligible to vote. This includes residents of the Enlarged City School District of Middletown, residents of the Town of Mt. Hope who reside within the Pine Bush Central School District, and residents of the Town of Wallkill who reside within the Pine Bush Central School District, Valley Central School District, or Minisink Valley Central School District.

The proposed gross operating budget for 2018 is $3,562,635.00 representing an increase of 2.9% from the previous year. The proposed budget will increase the tax levy by $250,560.00 or 8.26% over the previous year. This increase was necessitated by a significant loss of revenue caused by the expiration of the P.I.L.O.T. agreement between the Town of Wallkill and the Crystal Run Galleria Mall. The proposed budget represents the minimum amount of funding required to maintain Library hours of operation and services at their current levels.

Currently there are two incumbent Trustees running for reelection to serve four year terms on Middletown Thrall Library's Board of Trustees.

You can pick up a copy of the proposed budget in the library or view the information on the library's website at for more information call (845) 341-5485.
