6/18/2020 – Vote Results:
Guilderland Public Library would like to thank everyone who participated in our mail-in ballot election. Here are the results:
- Voters approved our $3.995 million budget levy for 2020-21 with a 64 percent approval rate. We greatly appreciate the enduring support of the community we serve. Throughout the pandemic shutdown, we have continually strived to reinvent ourselves to meet patrons’ needs virtually, in various ways. Now, as we work in two staggered staff teams to gradually reintroduce services, we are ever-mindful of health and safety concerns, and aim to proceed with utmost caution for the well-being of staff and patrons alike. Our resolve remains steadfast: we’re here for you as we move forward with intention. Thank you for your continued support, recognizing the intrinsic value of YOUR library.
- Out of five candidates seeking one of three open Board of Trustees seats, the three elected are: Marcia Alazraki, Mark Keeling (incumbent), and Richard Rubin. We extend our congratulations to these individuals, and our sincere appreciation to Herb Hennings and Phil Metzger for their dedicated service and contributions to the Library Board. We are grateful for the diligent oversight of all who volunteer their time and energy as GPL Board members.
From the Altamont Enterprise:
