Dear Residents,

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I would like to extend our sincere gratitude to everyone who voted to support the Library budget on April 5. I am pleased to announce that the budget passed by a vote of 143 to 22. We appreciate your confidence as we strive to meet the needs of the community and provide you with the best possible library service.

I would also like to thank you for electing returning Library Trustees Dana Lynch, Gayle Quaglia, and George Schwertl. Trustees play a key role in making the policy, personnel, and fiscal decisions that help keep the Library moving in a positive direction, and our Library Board works diligently to constantly improve the level of service we offer.

Dear Residents,

The goal of the Cold Spring Harbor Library is to educate, entertain, and enhance the lives of everyone in the community. We strive to create an inviting atmosphere for all ages, offer a wide variety of programs, and maintain a quality collection of books, eBooks, DVDs and other popular resources.

The proposed budget for the 2016-2017 fiscal year has a zero percent increase, which complies with the New York State tax cap. Although total expenditures will remain the same as last year, we will be increasing the funding of key service areas, including our Children’s Easy Reader, Fiction, and Nonfiction book collections, and our Children’s, Teen, and Adult Programs.
