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.
