The Liverpool Public Library is grateful to community members who voiced their support at the ballot box on Tuesday, May 17, passing the 2022-23 budget by a count of 1,740-409.
“I would like to thank the Liverpool community for their continued support of the Liverpool Public Library,” said LPL Director Glenna Wisniewski. “As author John Vincent stated in The Role of Libraries in Times of Crisis: ‘Libraries support their communities in many different ways. Whether through times of humanitarian or political crisis, civil unrest or even the personal crises that affect all of us, libraries can be places of comfort, safety, reconciliation, and hope.’
“You can count on the daily commitment of our staff and trustees to provide the services and materials to help all our users manage their way,” Wisniewski said.
Also on May 17, Yvette Hewitt, Mary Schapley and Dennis McLaughlin were reelected to five-year terms to the LPL Board of Trustees. They’ll be sworn in for the new term at the July meeting.
The trustees and Wisniewski’s management team worked for months, with long discussions about the state of the economy, before setting and approving the 2022-23 budget with a 2.49 percent tax impact.
