MEDINA – The annual meeting of the Lee-Whedon Memorial Library will be held at the library on Monday, May 9, 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 David Schwert is seeking re-election to the board for a five-year term.

The library’s board of trustees has prepared a conservative budget for 2022-2023. The library is asking for an increase in the tax of 1.02 percent. The property tax levy will increase to $565,028.
