The Library District consists of all of the Town of Clifton Park and the areas in the Town of Halfmoon that are not served by the Mechanicville or Waterford-Halfmoon School Districts. The Library District does not follow the Shenendehowa School District boundaries.
2023 Budget Vote & Trustee Election-September 15, 2022
A message from the Board:
As we return to a sense of normalcy in the world and in our community, your Library remains steadfast in its effort to provide the high level of service and quality programs you have come to rely on. The library staff works diligently to offer a full slate of programs, especially those that promote reading and fun during the summer months.
As Trustees, we are proud to visit the Library and see it bustling with patrons participating in various programs, exploring unique features like the ocean-themed displays throughout the Library, doing homework, learning with tutors, or simply browsing the vast collection of books, movies, and other materials and resources the Library has to offer.
Of course, it’s our duty to maintain the Library to its highest possible standards while still offering a fiscally responsible budget. While this year’s budget includes a modest tax adjustment, it remains tax cap compliant and ensures library staff are supported, provides ample funds for building and facility maintenance, and supports the quality programs and services patrons want, need, and have come to love.
We offer our sincerest gratitude for the dedication, expertise, and professionalism of the remarkable library staff who continually demonstrate ingenuity and creativity while adjusting to an ever-changing landscape. Most importantly, we express great thanks to our patrons who continue to visit, appreciate, and support their local library every day. Thank you!
