The Schoharie Central School budget vote for the 2020-21 fiscal year will be held on June 9th VIA ABSENTEE BALLOT due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. A proposition to increase the Schoharie Free Library Association’s annual budget by $10,000 per year will be included on the school budget ballot. For most taxpayers, this tax increase is about the price of a medium size ice cream cone and will allow us to continue to provide programming for all residents of the school district.
Voters will receive a postage prepaid absentee ballot that will include the Schoharie Free Library’s proposition. The absentee ballot must be returned by 5 p.m. on June 9, 2020 in order to be counted.
During the COVID-19 emergency, the Schoharie Free Library continues to provide virtual programming via the internet, including our Friday morning Story Time. Many of our clubs and programs were converted into an on-line format so patrons could continue to participate. The library also provides internet access and e-books and magazines through Overdrive and we continue to offer free books on our porch.
The Library is getting ready to reopen and when we do, we plan to offer “curbside” pick up for books and a separate time for seniors and those who are immunocompromised to visit.
