The Glen Cove Public Library is very pleased to announce that its budget for the fiscal year 2010–11 passed by an overwhelming majority at the budget vote and trustee election held on Tuesday, April 13. Trustee Toni Ann Kessel has been re-elected to the Library Board of Trustees, and her new five year term will begin on July 1. The other board members are Christine Ghent, Paul Meli, Ellen Savino, and Michael Maher.
Despite rising costs, the library was able to avoid asking for an increase in tax revenues for this budget year. This was accomplished by careful budgeting and conservation of resources. We know, however, that we cannot do this every year.
But this does not mean our goals have changed. Passage of the budget will allow the library to continue its efforts to offer the community the best in library services, from books and audio-visual materials, to programs and services that benefit the entire community. We are working very hard to do more with less.
The board of trustees, Director Antonia Petrash and the library’s entire staff wish to thank the community for its continuing support.
