Moffat Library of Washingtonville Bond Referendum Passage
PRESS RELEASE – March 27, 2015
The Moffat Library of Washingtonville is pleased to announce that the $6.922 million bond referendum, which will enable the library to restore, renew and re-imagine its 1887 Historic Landmark Moffat Library building, passed with resounding support on March 3, 2015. The vote tally of 733 yes votes and 289 no clearly showed how much the community values its public library.
Site preparation work will start this spring, with the primary construction beginning in the spring of 2016. The main construction project is expected to take between 13-18 months. It is anticipated that the library will reopen in the historic Moffat Library building in the early fall of 2017.
The Moffat Library Board of Trustees would like to thank the staff, the Friends of Moffat Library and the many volunteers who helped in this successful endeavor. This outcome would not have been possible without their unwavering dedication. Sincerest thanks. And last, but certainly not least, many thanks to the community who came out to vote and showed their support of Moffat Library in a very real and tangible way.
