2019-2020 Annual Budget Vote and Trustee Election
As we complete the renovation of our magazine room in our Main building, I hope you’ve had a chance to see what we’ve done and maybe sit by our new fireplace for a bit. It has been most inviting on some of our cold winter days. We also have some new comfortable seating on the second floor in both of our buildings which has helped to give us much needed additional reading space.
As we continue to offer many diverse programs and services, I’d like you to know how much I appreciate the support that you, our patrons, continue to give us. Please note the information on our upcoming budget vote and trustee election. I hope you will take the time to come out and vote that day.
This year, our annual Budget Vote will take place on Tuesday, April 2, 2019 from 10:00 am – 9:00 pm at our Main St. location. The Proposed Budget information may be viewed HERE.
