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

When: Tuesday, March 31st

Time: 6:30pm

Where: Library Viewing Room

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. 75% of New York libraries are now School District Public Libraries.  These types of 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 this community conversation and we’ll go into greater detail about the school district option and how it will impact you.

Tom Hanks portrays Mister Rogers in A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. After a jaded magazine writer (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America's most beloved neighbor. We’ll supply the popcorn and water.
