It must really suck to be you.I decided that I wasn't being fair. So I visited lots of libraries around. Dunham is the worst. It's the staff who are surly and NEVER smile. And no new books. What's the point of a bookstore in a library anyway. I really like the smaller libraries like New York Mills and Oriskany but Utica is good too. The worst part is that I pay taxes to support the Dunham library and I'm not getting my moneys worth. Where's the Board in all of this.

The work of re doing a place such as a library cannot be done over night , you might want to return there now and check it out . BTW most libraries in our state are run on a shoe string budget and with state aid declining every year and every thing else going up be happy you still have an open library to call your own . They are closing public libraries all over the country .

Welll.... they sell books to make money and room for newer books, especially updated volumes. I thought that would be kind of obvious. And like someone else said... donate a few books if you think they aren't keeping up well. Don't forget that they also have inter-library loans there too, so you can order a book that is on the shelf in Utica or Clinton. You also need to figure out if they have a newer book in ebook form.
I dislike a lot of things about the Mohawk Valley, but I tend to leave Dunham alone. They've treated me very well. I don't care about the DVDs. The only complaint I have is very slight; the only outlet for laptops are by the coffee maker.
As for New Hartford... I'm not involved in the crazy politics over there, so I don't have a bone to pick with them either. At least the construction seems newer than Kirkland or Utica.
