Meetings for 2021 will be held virtually on Mondays at Noon unless otherwise indicated.
All regular meetings are open to the public. Citizens are welcome to address the Board of Trustees for a maximum of three minutes, beginning at 12:00 p.m. To address the Board about an issue on a Library Board meeting agenda, please call 585-428-8046 or email firstname.lastname@example.org by 10:00 a.m. on the day of the meeting and provide name, address, organization represented (if any), and the topic.
