Voters Approve $5.36 Million Saratoga Springs Public Library Budget

SARATOGA SPRINGS —Saratoga Springs School District residents have approved a tax levy of $5,363,013 to operate the Saratoga Springs Public Library in FY 2024-25. The vote tally: 185 yes, 17 no.

The library serves the residents of the Saratoga Springs City School District, and funds for the library are collected when school taxes are collected.  The proposed FY 24-25 budget contains a 1.5% increase over the amount levied in FY 23-24. An estimated $1,499,095 will be available from sources other than FY 24-25 property taxes. The tax amount for public library purposes appears as a separate item on school district tax bills.

 “We thank all those who came out to vote.” said Library Board President Katie Capelli, in a statement.  “We’ve just completed another busy year, including making progress toward the goals set out in our long-range service plan, and we continue to expand our collections, programs, and services. We are delighted by the public’s ongoing support, and look forward to continuing to serve the changing needs of our community.”
