Are you sure? I thought someone said the trustee was only on board for a year or two. I am reading conflicting stories.

I know that part is true, but is it true he is the trustee who is a real estate agent who made a commission on the purchase of the property on Center STreet? Is that true?

I am not sure. The information would not be hard to obtain. Supposedly whoever it was did get caught. His family provides the insurance to the village. He is vrey connected to the Tarpey era.

The old man on the board Frank B. Stein has a real estate license.

so are we to surmise from your hints that Frank Stein made the commission on selling the parcel of land to te library?

are you not outright saying it... but giving us hints that he is the person who made moneyh.

How is anything going to be fixed if everyone is afraid to say anything.

someone mentioned to me that the River Grove Library will be closing down completely at the end of the year...is this true?

Didnt they just form a Friend of the Library group that is fundriasing?

I know that the other libraries in the area have small Friends of the library chapters....maybe they can form a consortium of libraries in the Leyden area and work towards the same cause. There is more power in numbers

i hope it is not true. Can someone who knows update us? Thanks
I would call the library and ask but am afraid to.

The library has improved A LOT in the last couple years. The current staff is more professional and on the ball than the staff they had in the past.

The computers are great. And the library seems more involved in the community. But they still have the same trusteess except for a couple.

If the trustees are the same, then why didnt they make these changes years ago? Dont understand. If their previous directors were so mediocre...why didnt the trustees say something?

I hope the positive changes continue and hopefully there will be a new library. But that depends on the community.

That doesnt sound ethical. isnt that a conflict of interest. if this is indeed true, this should be reported to the Better Government Association.

If this is true, that means the other trustees were aware and the library director and they said and did nothing. Are they stupid or are they also in on it.

maybe you should publicize this more in the paper so the community is aware.
