Tuesday, March 28, will see both libraries put their proposed 2018 budgets to a vote. Residents of the Rampo Central School District who are registered to vote are encouraged to drop in at either the Suffern Free Library or Sloatsburg Public Library and vote.
Sloatsburg’s proposed budget will increase some 2.5% to a taxable budget of $384,728 and total budget of $404,076 (grants, fines, fees, and donations contribute a small portion to the library’s income. Click here to view the budget and information.
As most Sloatsburgers know, the SPL is a valued community asset that serves as an educational and cultural hub. With recent Ramapo Central School District cuts that eliminated elementary school librarians, the SPL has picked up the slack, providing even more books, programming and services to young learners.
The SPL has also made some significant and important improvements thanks to a NY State Construction Grant — including the complete renovation of the chapel room, upgraded restrooms and the addition of a 50s diner-themed Teen Room.
Show your love for learning and the library. Vote on the 2018 budget so that the Sloatsburg Library can continue to serve the community as a vital, valued educational and cultural center.
