2021 Library Budget & Trustee Vote

A Message to Our Community from the Library Director:

Due to COVID and the economic impact it has made
on our community, at their July 8, 2020 meeting,
the Library Board of Trustees voted not to seek
an increase to the tax levy and will operate
at the same level as the 2020 budget.

The Trustee Election is on October 6, 2020 from 8 am - 8 pm at the Library.
The two candidates running are Fran Amelio and Robert Smith.
The vote will take place in the Reading Room of the library.

Those who wish to vote between the hours of 8:00 am and 9:30 am
may enter the Library through any one of the two Depot Street entrances
to the building. After 9:30am patrons may enter through the main entrance.
