New Hartford Library, a member of the MidYork Library System, recently began the process of becoming a school district library. Currently, the library is a municipal public library, and therefore receives its funding through the town of New Hartford’s budget. This budget line, like that of Oneida county’s, has been decreasing every year. As a school district library, New Hartford Library will be able to depend on its budget as a more consistent, stable source, and the funds will be drawn from a larger pool of tax-payers.
