MEDINA – The annual meeting of the Lee-Whedon Memorial Library will be held at the library on Monday, May 8, at 7 p.m.

Agenda items include voting on a trustee position, the presentation of the annual report and the presentation of the proposed budget. Trustee Isabella Mark is seeking re-election to the Board for a five-year term.

The Board has prepared another conservative budget for 2023-2024. The library is asking for an increase in the library tax of 2.81% which is under the New York State tax cap for the library. The property tax levy will increase to $580,913.

“The library continues to operate a conservative organization,” said Cynthia Kiebala, the Lee-Whedon board president. “Costs have risen in nearly every aspect of our operations and so we must ask for an increase in order to maintain services. We are proud of our staff and our high standards of service.”

Residents of the Medina Central School District are invited to attend this public meeting. The budget vote will be at the library on Tuesday, May 9, from noon to 8 p.m. The library is located at 620 West Ave.
