MIDDLETOWN, NJ – Closure of the Bayshore, Lincroft and Navesink Branch Libraries has been postponed until March 1, 2013 by the Board of Trustees so that representatives of these local communities within the Township have an opportunity to work with the library’s Finance Committee to develop a viable alternative plan. Representing the Bayshore area will be Bernadette Massey, Melanie Elmiger will represent Lincroft, and Michael Winchell will represent Navesink. On the Library Finance Committee are Brock Siebert, President of the Board, David Siwiec, Treasurer, Lawrence Nelsen, Vice President, new Trustee Robert Cordiano, and Library Director Susan O’Neal. An invitation to join this committee will be extended to the Middletown Township Board of Education.
If a viable plan is not developed for a branch by the February 20th meeting of the library board, it will be closed on March 1. Please check the library’s web page [www.mtpl.org] for updates including contact information for the members of the committee. This information will be posted as soon as possible.
