Two weeks before the start of the new fiscal year (July 1, 2016), the Library Director and Trustees were given final figures on the amount of town and state funding for operation of the library. Town appropriation of $550,100 and State grant of $116,085 for a total of $666,185. Due to increases in health care costs and service contracts, the library currently faces a $60,000 shortfall for this fiscal year. The only way to cover this shortfall was to cut staff and hours.
Beginning on July 5th, at 5:30 PM, Harris Gruber will continue to lead his book group series featuring the Patrick O'Brian series of books. In January, he began with Book 1, MASTER AND COMMANDER; now, will move on to POST CAPTAIN. The meetings will be held on Tuesdays, beginning July 5 at 5:30 and run for up to 6 weeks.
