(BROCKPORT, N.Y)- Three local municipality boards met for a special meeting Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018 to discuss the financial fate of the Brockport-Seymour Library. The boards decided to consider hiring a business consultant for the library after meeting with the library board at Sweden Town Park Lodge to go over potential budgets for 2019. Library Director Carl Gouveia presented three “dream” budgets that would allow the library to maintain longer hours of operation, fix technical problems with lighting and potentially remodel the now 20 year old building. The library boasts 9,806 registered borrowers, which breaks down to an average 400 visitors a day and roughly 376 items borrowed per day.
