Library Board to Hold January Design Forum

Leave a comment

As part of their continuing outreach to the community, the Board of Trustees of the John Jermain Memorial Library and the Library Development Committee (LDC) will hold their fourth community forum on Wednesday, Jan. 31st at 6 p.m. in the North Haven Village Hall. The forum will discuss a site plan and floor plans for the new building adjacent to the park, and possible influences on its design.

According to Board President Greg Ferraris, the board and the committee of community people will hold forums at least every month, aiming for a referendum in June to finance the two-building library expansion. “We would like all taxpayers in the Sag Harbor School District to participate in and understand our planning so that in June they can cast an informed vote. The expanded library will be a huge asset to the community, and we believe that a well-informed public will support the program.”

The board and the LDC already have held three open forums. Over the next few months they will address the important issues of design for the new building at the southern entrance to Sag Harbor, as well as preservation of, and modest addition to, the 96-year old existing building, enabling it to continue to provide vital library services to the community.
