To our Valued Patrons, 

I hope all of our Tomkins Cove Public Library patrons are staying healthy.  We are busy making plans to reopen the library and doing everything we can to keep staff and patrons safe.  It will be a while before we open the doors to our patrons, but we will begin offering curbside service in mid June.  More details will follow as the plans are finalized.  Due to COVID-19, we are unable to hold our Annual Meeting and Budget Vote in person.  In accordance with Executive Order No 202.26, the Budget Vote and Trustee Vote will be held remotely by absentee ballot. Our ballot will be mailed with the ballot for the School Budget and School Board Election.  We will hold a virtual meeting to answer any questions about the budget on June 3 at 8:00 PM.

Here is a link to the 2020-2021 Budget.

If you would like to attend this virtual meeting, please email jlukas@rcls.org to get the login information. Please continue to stay safe.
