Calling for an Elected Board for the Westhampton Free Library

This petition had 108 supporters

We are Residents for a Free Westhampton Free Library - a group of citizens working to establish a taxpayer-elected board for the Westhampton Free Library in Westhampton Beach, New York.

The Westhampton Free Library is an association library, which is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Westhampton Free Library board members, like any other nonprofit, get to decide how the facility is governed and how their fellow members are selected to serve. We believe that the Westhampton Free Library should no longer have a self-appointed board.  The taxpayers of the Westhampton Beach School District and the contract districts (East Quogue, Remsenburg-Speonk, Eastport/South Manor, and East Moriches school districts) should have a say in the election of the Westhampton Free Library board members. We believe in American and democratic taxation with representation.
