The Ogdensburg Public Library's Board of Trustees, Staff, and Executive Director would like to thank the community for voting "YES" on Proposition #3 on the recent Ogdensburg Public School District's budget vote. Proposition 3 was a proposed referendum requesting $50,000 from school district residents to replace recent cuts in our budget.
As a result of the support from our community, the library will be able to maintain our current hours of operation and resume purchasing new materials (books, DVDs, audio materials, etc) that had been cut from our budget. We greatly appreciate your continued support of the Ogdensburg Public Library.
