Creating Stable and Sustainable Funding at the Library - The District Initiative

The Massena Public Library Board of Trustees has determined that in order to guarantee future library funding and services, the library should transition from a Municipal Public Library to a School District Public Library. School District Public Libraries are autonomous legal entities, independent of the school district or town and are governed by elected library boards. School District Public Libraries receive funding directly from school district taxpayers by asking them to vote on a resolution placed on the annual school district ballot. If the funding proposition passes, the school district collects the taxes and turns the library portion over to the library board. Please consider joining us at either information session; we’ll go into greater detail about the school district option and will answer any questions you may have.
