What's Available @ the Library?


Bancroft Public Library
It has been confirmed by an official of the New York State Library that once the Village of Salem dissolution has become final, our library must also dissolve, since we are chartered as a village public library. This means that we will have to go through a process of becoming re-chartered if we are to continue on as a public library. The library staff and board are in the process of carefully evaluating each option available to our library before we proceed. Stay tuned for more information and any ways in which you can help.
