PLEASE COMPLETE THIS SURVEY AND FORWARD IT TO FRIENDS
TO SAVE OUR MIDDLETOWN BRANCH LIBRARIES!
Your presence is NEEDED at the following meetings to show how important the libraries are to our community. Reserve these times, make a difference, and participate by being there. Your children are welcome to come and learn about our government.
- Monday, February 4, at 8pm : Middletown Township Committee meeting (Town Hall, 1 Kings Highway)
- Tuesday, February 19, at 8pm : Middletown Township Committee meeting
- Wednesday, February 20 at 7pm : Middletown Library Board of Trustees meeting -- The Board will be voting on their 2013 budget. The budget includes the closures of the branches. WE NEED THEM TO VOTE NO! Remember, once the libraries are closed, they are gone FOREVER.
On January 16, 2013, the Middletown Library Board of Trustees voted to close the three branch libraries at Bayshore, Lincroft, and Navesink due to an increase in expenses and a decrease in funding. The closures will take place on March 1, 2013, unless a strategy to save the branches is developed by the community. In an effort to obtain data about the value of the branches within the community each serves, a group of library supporters have developed the following survey. Please complete the survey for each and all family members for the branch that you utilize. The committee will compile the data and develop a proposal to present to the Library Board of Trustees.
If you have any inquiries or would like to help support our efforts, send an email to us at:
