Library Director Talks Budgets in YouTube Interview

Library Trustee Paul Pereira interviews Library Director Denise Medeiros on the subject of the April 1, 2008 Election in Dartmouth. Two ballot questions asking for an override of Prop. 2 1/2 pertain directly to the library as well as a debt exclusion question which would fund a new roof, paving the parking lot and a HVAC system for Southworth Library. Denise discusses what the consequences of a yes or no vote will mean, including possible loss of certification, resource-sharing with other libraries, staff layoffs, reduced hours and greatly reduced budget for book buying.

We are deeply saddened by the loss of Dartmouth Library Trustee Martha Munro who unexpectedly passed away on December 18, 2007. We remember her as a cherished library supporter and Library Trustee Board Member since 2002. Martha also served as a Dartmouth Town Meeting representative and a retired member of the Board of Directors of the Dartmouth Natural Resource Trust.

The town of Dartmouth and the Dartmouth Public Libraries have truly lost a valuable and respected colleague. May our heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathies extend to her parents, siblings and friends. A memorial service will be held in the Spring. Contributions in her memory may be offered to the Friends of the Dartmouth Libraries, 732 Dartmouth St., Dartmouth, MA 02748.

The Libraries will remember her fondly for her exemplary contribution to the  community.
