The Hurley Library Board of Trustees, Trustees Emeriti, and Staff are
saddened by the loss of our past trustee, Gilbert Hoppenstedt, DVM.
Dr. Gil was a valued member of our Board for 14 years. His interests were
diverse. His advice was always valuable. A willing worker in support of
all Library programs, he preferred to make his contributions in a quiet
manner. His presence on The Hurley Library Board was a benefit to the
Library and to the community as a whole.
Thank you, Dr. Gil, for your guidance, your wisdom, your humor. We were
honored to serve with you.
HURLEY LIBRARY UPDATE – July 2014
The library project has been approved by the Town of Hurley Planning Board
and the Preservation Committee. The Board is currently reviewing exterior
designs with architect Scott Dutton Associates, and interior designs with
Kollath, McCann Creative Services.
You may have noticed a new sign announcing our future home, trees trimmed
along Main Street, and a new telephone pole. Each of these projects
represents our commitment to be good stewards of the property and should
give you confidence that we are moving forward.
The Board is also working closely with a dedicated group of volunteers to
create a “Friends of the Hurley Library” group. The Friends group will
play a critical role helping the Hurley Library to be a vital, energetic,
inspiring, informative, interesting and sustainable part of the Town of
Hurley now, and for future generations.
Finally, the Board is pleased to announce that we have received $46,562
from the State Aid for Public Library Construction Program.
Please follow us on Facebook, visit our website or stop-by our library if
you are interested in our new Friends Group or if you have any questions or
concerns about any of the above information.
