The Skaneateles Library Association Board of Trustees understands and shares the community’s love of the current building. We take this decision very seriously and are taking the necessary time to learn from prior approaches, conduct research and evaluate options because we are entrusted with the long-term future of this vital community resource.
The current library space continues to face significant challenges, magnified by growth in attendance at our programs, the number of items and services available and general use over the last few years. These challenges cannot ALL be solved by a redesign of the current building – including parking, accessibility and simply the size of the building and parcel of land – but they can be improved. There are numerous tradeoffs to either renovating or building new.
