State Budget Discussion at Town Hall Saturday

Join State Assembly Leader Joe Morelle for a State Budget Forum at Town Hall on Saturday, March 8 at 11 AM.

Governor Cuomo’s proposed budget includes a 5% cut to aid for public libraries. Last year he proposed the same cut and the legislature reversed it. Perhaps, considering all we do for the unemployed and underprivileged, they might be convinced to rescind that cut again?

Help Us Design Your New Library

February 13th, 2014 by Terry in Adults, Kids, Teens, The Open Book, Uncategorized · Comments Off ·

There will be a meeting at the Town Hall in the Broderick Room on Tuesday, February 25 at 7 pm.  At this meeting residents will get a chance to contribute to the design of the new building by telling us what they most want to see in their new library.  Members of the design team, library board, library staff and town government will be present to hear what is most important to you. We are working on other avenues for residents to contribute but this is a terrific opportunity for you to discuss your hopes for the future of library services in Irondequoit.  Please attend and tell us what you want!
