Updated News Alert

Thank you to all our wonderful library supporters. We are appreciative that the Warren County Board of Supervisors has allocated additional funding to cover library operations for the second quarter through December 31, 2023.

In response to the recent controversy regarding the book collection, the Warren County Board of Supervisors has put forward a Library Funding Agreement (sometimes called a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA)). The Samuels Public Library Board of Trustees has countered with a more acceptable MOA in keeping with responses from the many patrons who do not want to alter the mission, collections, and services which the library has always provided. We are hopeful that progress is being made on the MOAs so that full funding can be restored.

Below you will find copies of the MOAs.

To continue showing your support, please continue to monitor the news and keep in contact with your county supervisor.
