A YES vote means:
- A large, historic building in the center of Stony Point, the school house at 117 W Main St., will be preserved, renovated, and reopened for the use of all town residents
- Expanded children’s room with natural light, comfortable seating, and play-based learning area for children ages 0-7
- Creation of the only free, safe, engaging space for tweens and teens in Stony Point.
- Extended opening hours and drastically increased on-site programming for all ages.
- Facilities and support for entrepreneurs, small businesses, and those working remotely
- A local history room and archive where residents can research and share the rich history of Stony Point.
- Comfortable, up-to-date meeting rooms available for free use by local community groups
- An art studio/teaching kitchen for free unique, hands-on programs
- Modern technology, more computers, and fast wi-fi
A NO Vote Means
- The school house will either continue to sit empty and fall into further disrepair or be sold for private use
- Rose Memorial Library’s facilities will only become more outdated since the current building is not large enough to meet the basic needs of the town and Rose Memorial’s budget is still one of the smallest in Rockland County
- The library collection will never get any larger as the shelf and storage spaces are completely full
- No designated spaces for teens or tweens. Teens will share the main library space with adults and seniors
- Programming will decrease due to lack of affordable, reliably accessible off-site meeting room space
- Aging and limited technology
- Patrons face safety concerns when coming to the library since the current building has no parking of its own and visitors must cross a busy section of Main St. from the town parking lot
