The Poughkeepsie Public Library District is a special legislative district created to provide public library service to the residents of the City and Town of Poughkeepsie, New York. As such, the voters in each municipality annually vote on an operating budget and, from time to time, supplemental and capital programs. The Library District is its own independent authority and is governed by its legislation, applicable public law, and its by-laws. For further information on the organization and administration of the Library District, contact Tom Lawrence, Executive Director at (845) 485-3445 x 3306.
The 2010 Annual Report to the Community was distributed with the Summer 2011 issue of The Rotunda. It is also accessible here. For further information, contact Tom Lawrence, Executive Director at (845) 485-3445 x 3306.
