A Message from the Board of Trustees:

On April 10th residents overwhelmingly approved the Board of Trustees’ proposed budget for 2018-2019 and reelected me to another five-year term on the Board. We thank all who participated in the process and look forward to serving the community in the coming year.
A lot of exciting things are happening here at your library: our Discovery Backyard opened in mid-April with new items for children to explore, we added a new digital information board near our east entrance, several of our DVD collections have been separated to make them easier to find, we added a “Makerspace” in our Children’s Room, and soon we will start lending out Wi-Fi hotspots. These are just a few of the many changes at your library, as we continue to evolve to better meet your needs.

-Thank you again, John E. Flynn

A message from the Library Director:
Recently the library was audited by the NY State Comptroller’s office as part of their statewide mission. During this audit they found no improprieties, no misappropriation of funds and no waste of public monies. They did have a couple of recommendations to improve our financial controls.
We listened to these recommendations and implemented appropriate procedures accordingly.
A copy of this audit and our corrective action plan is available by clicking on the links below.
Please feel free to give me a call or stop in and ask for me, if you have any additional questions.
Thank you!
