How is the library funded?

The library receives an annual levy of $350,000 from taxpayers in the Skaneateles Central School District. In addition to public support, the library relies on income from investments, fundraising, donations and grants to meet our community’s needs.

In 2016, the library requested local public funding for the first time in its history. School district residents approved the library’s request to provide an annual levy of $350,000. At the time, we were one of only two libraries in New York State that did not receive local public funding.
