As an act of good faith toward the community in these uncertain times, the library board has voted to cancel this year’s proposed budget vote which was scheduled for April 7, 2020. The library trustees decided that there will be no increase in library taxes for the coming fiscal year due to the hardship and financial impact of the pandemic on our community.
The South Country Library Trustee Election will be held in conjunction with the South Country School District school budget vote and school board election on Tuesday, June 9th by absentee ballot only.
All voting will be by Absentee Ballot only as per Executive Order 202.26. Absentee Ballots will be mailed to all registered voters of the South Country Central School District on May 28, 2020.

Dunton Avenue, East Patchogue, NY, each weekday beginning June 1, 2020 from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm and on June 9, 2020 from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm.
