Two info sessions to be held on Hollwedel library's pursuit to become school district public library
Residents of the Pavilion Central School District are invited to attend either one of two information sessions to be held at the Hollwedel Memorial Library on its decision to pursue becoming a school district public library.
The one-on-one meetings will take place on Saturday, April 24 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and on Monday, April 26 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the library, located at 5 Woodrow Drive in Pavilion.
The meetings were announced in a mailing sent to Pavilion Central School District residents earlier this month.
They will be hosted by the Board President Joan Gray and Board Vice President Stephen Gould.
As a school district public library, the library would have a service area that aligns with the boundaries of the Pavilion Central School District.
The library’s budget and the board of trustees would be determined by a public vote. The library itself would remain housed in the same building and be staffed by the same professionals.
The school district would collect tax money for the library and turn the funds over to the Library Board. The school district would have no direct control over the operations of the library.
All recommended COVID-19 safety protocols will be followed for the meetings at the library. Please wear a mask for your visit.
Current library hours are: Monday and Wednesday 2 to 7 p.m. / Friday 1 to 5 p.m. / Saturday 10 a.m. to noon / Closed Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
