Welcome Letter from the Director

A Message from the Board of Trustees

Hi Everyone:

Keep your eyes and ears open because work will begin on the New Hurley Library by the end of April. Meyer Contracting of Pleasant Valley will be doing the work. We would like to take a moment to say THANK YOU to all of the people who have generously donated to our fundraising campaign.

The Hurley Lions Club has been extremely kind and helpful with the new library project. They donated the great thermometer on the front lawn of the new building, gave a generous donation, and conducted “can shakes” outside the Stewart’s Shops on Lucas Avenue and on Hurley’s Main Street. The next time you drive by the building, look for the thermometer, you will notice that our community has already raised approximately $40,000 dollars, which represents more than half of the current goal!

The Hurley Lions Club has also arranged for a fundraiser on May 6th at the restaurant “99’s” in the Town of Ulster. Dine at the restaurant from 4-10 PM and 15% of your check will be donated back to the Hurley Library. Visit the library to pick-up the flyer. Please tell your friends and neighbors about this easy way to support the library.

There is a lot of work still to be done and there will need to be another phase of fundraising for items such as, furniture, computers and shelving. Please visit the library to learn more about the project and to get the most current information. You can also visit our web page and find us on Facebook.

Please know that the wonderful, positive support from the community has made the Board of Trustees feel lucky and humbled to live in Hurley. Thank you.
