Library Tortoise

Utica, NY

#1 Jul 2, 2013
Hello New Hartford! I am the NH Library Tortoise and on behalf of the New Hartford Library Trustees we need your help to save your Library. Here is my blog:
http://newhartfordonline.blogspot.com/

Town Supervisor Pat Tyksinski is running for Town Supervisor again, although he has previously said he would not. If you enjoy the services of the library and believe it should continue, you need to punish him in the voting booth. Don Backman his Republican opponent is not an option either, he has been blind to what Wiatr costs us in community resources and spirit.

Tyksinki is trying to destroy the Library! Councilman Don Backman is trying to destroy our library. Ed Wiatr is trying to destroy the library! Ed Flemma is trying to destroy our library! Joe Bolton is trying to destroy our Library! The forces aligned against our library are legion. Help us now or the library will be bulldozed over!
Please read my blog. Which can be found here: http://newhartfordonline.blogspot.com/

OMG! You have got to be kidding me? I thought this was some kind of joke but no, I checked out this blog and this Library Tortoise is serious!

So now Pat Tyksinski and Don Backman are now on the Library's enemies list? Their enemy list is longer than Tricky Dick's! LMAO. What the heck is going on with the New Hartford Library!?

The library needs to look at what is happening around the nation regarding the funding of local libraries. Funding levels are decreasing or remaining flat. Libraries are merging. Get used to the new normal. My guess is your funding is not going to be increased to $1M or anywhere close anytime soon... You saw what happened when the library's plan was brought up for a public vote. People came out of the woodwork to vote against it and many of these voters had never voted previously. It is not just the few people you name who are against the increased funding levels/taxes the library believes are required. Good Luck!

I personally funded some 3,000 libraries in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. I find it incredulus that the Town of New Hartford cannot fund one library.

Apparently OD Publisher Dona Donovan is on the Library's Enemies List also. Look at this quote from Library Tortoise:

"Dona Donovan's opposition to the New Hartford Public Library goes back 30 years, so now she resorts to another ill-informed editorial on the Library."

Sigh... I read through this Library Tortoise Blog. The blog is very embarrassing for the the library and town. Its obvious that new leadership at the library is required to reign in the children running amok.
Let's hope that the Town Board steps in and restores sanity to what should be a no brainier.

I wouldn't be surprised to to see that Pat Tyksinski is upset. Talk about burning bridges! It looks like half of New Hartford is on the Library's Enemy List!

Actually the children are employees like Roy Senn, otherwise known as Library Tortoise. I wonder if he writes his blog while he is on the clock? Roy should keep writing his blog so all of New Hartford can see the dysfunction of the Library

How are we going to fund the shortfalls at the library? I do not know what to do now. You mean I actually have to do something constructive?

The public libraries in Poland's major cities became centers of Cultural independence and resistance to Russian domination of Poland after 1795. Patriots valued their mission to preserve and maintain the Polish national identity in the face of Russification and the prohibition of the use of the Polish language in the schools.

Many studies have identified libraries as we know them today will be extinct in the next 10-15 years... Good Luck!

Libraries provide many services, yes, but the most important service is lending books.

Tablets & eReaders are a much better way to get a book than borrowing it or buying it at a bookstore. You can get the book right away, the split second you want it!

More, and more, and more people are going to buy tablet devices & eReaders over the next ten years.

Power readers are disproportionately more likely to buy tablets & eReaders. Anyone who really loves reading, buying, and borrowing books is likely going to buy an eReader.

Once you really start enjoy reading on a Kindle or iPad, your interest in visiting a bookstore or library goes down precipitously.

Buying a book cheaply on your Kindle or iPad is so much better than (1) go to a library,(2) cross-fingers hope they have the book in stock,(3) borrow the book,(4) read it,(5) remember to return it, and (6) drive back to the library to return it. Thatís a lot of work.
