Fear Not, Says One Resident, The Library Is Fine

 Around Town, Case Memorial Library, Home, Latest News, Today's Events  Comments Off on Fear Not, Says One Resident, The Library Is Fine
Apr 292017
 

This week I posted a press release from our regular source at the Case Memorial Library stating that the library would be closed on Saturdays due to budget cuts.

This has happened in the past and many residents were upset with the news and expressed their concerns on our Facebook page

One resident, though, said that we got it wrong — no phone call or e-mail explaining why the story was inaccurate, just “you’re wrong.”

After some prying, she said that a new decision has been made and that the Library Commission never approved the release. (She has since deleted her comments from the FB page). The story was up for 3 days yet I haven’t heard any complaints or received a corrected press release from anyone in authority at the library.

I will be away today when the library is open and I won’t be able to call. But I encourage someone to contact me at orangectlive01@gmail.com so I can pass on the correct information. I know many people will be relieved if the library hours aren’t affected.

 

Library To Close On Saturdays Due To Budget Cuts

Case Memorial Library

An important message from the Case Memorial Library — and how you can help. 

Cuts to the Case Memorial Library’s staff budget, including the elimination of funding and a hiring freeze for an essential professional librarian position, forced the Case Memorial Library Commission to make the difficult decision to close the Library on Saturdays, effective June 3, until further notice.
Without funding and permission to fill essential staff positions, the library does not have adequate staffing to maintain its hours six days a week.

Let your town representatives know that you want your Library open six days a week.

Make your voice heard at the Public Hearing of the Orange Board of Finance:
Thursday, April 27, 7:30 p.m. at High Plains Cafeteria

  1. Tell them why the Library is important to you.
  2. Tell them you want the Library open six days a week.
  3. Tell them you want funding restored to the Case Memorial Library’s staff budget and vacant Library positions filled immediately.

If you can’t make it to the hearing, contact your representatives. Every phone call, every email, every letter counts
