Districting, Elections, Voting OH MY!!!

Ripley Library has decided to move forward with becoming a Library District. To fully explain this to the public, we will be offering informational talks at the Library. They are scheduled for April 14th at 6pm, April 21st at 6pm, April 30th at 11am and May 12 at 6pm. There will also be an informational talk at Meeders Restaurant on Friday May 6th at 5pm. The vote will take place at the same time as the Ripley Central School District vote on Tuesday, May 17th. Our district proposal which includes $85,000 in community-based funding and trustee elections will be separate items on the ballot.

When a Library becomes a district, trustees are elected by school district voters. This is a change in the way our Library Board members are chosen. There will be seven trustee positions available. Those interested in running must live in the school district, be a U.S. citizen and be at least 18 years of age and a registered voter. Trustee candidates will have to collect at least 25 signatures on a nominating petition. The deadline for turning in the petition is April 18, 2016.

If you are interested in running as a Ripley Library trustee, please stop in and pick up an information packet that includes the petition you will use. You can also download this information and read more about the Ripley District Initiative at

For more information, please stop in and be sure to mark your calendars for one of the informational talks. Thank you for your support.
