Were problems resolved with the board? Any heads roll? Is it being turned into a Tim Hortons (the current rumor)? Will they get any vintage porn movies on VHS? Can I avoid the surveillance cameras?

Problems resolved? No... They are all still there because OD reporter Sara Tracy files false and misleading reports.

No heads rolling... in fact, incompetence is rewarded. Case in point, Former Library Director Hans Plembeck was a hot tempered incompetent who through books across the floor when he didn't get his way. The Library Trustees saw fit to give him a $16,000 taxpayer funded going retirement gift

Turning the library into a Tim Hortan's not likely but right now it would be a better use of th building and get the taxpayers off the hook.

VHS Porn at the library? No, but they do have a selection of DVDs and magazines. Wait, scratch that, they don't have any magazines because of "Massive Budget cuts." You can read the large obnoxious signs on the magazine racks yourself.

Surveillance cameras? Former Library Director Hans, Peeping Tom Plembeck would brag to Library President Linda Romano that he could use the system to spy on unsuspecting library patrons. Maybe its OK now that Hans "peeping Tom" Plembeck is now retired enjoying his $16,000 cash gift.

The bottom line is that the NH Library is just as incompetently lead as it was a year ago.

You know who's got a great library? Waterville. Not only do they have full magazine racks (unlike New Hartford's "Public" Library) but the Waterville Library has a fully functional Astronomical Observatory. The Public can use it also after taking a training class. How about that, little Waterville shwing up the almightly New Hartford Library. LOL

Our Library is over built, too expensive and redundant. There are plenty of options within just a few miles of New Hartford for libraries. Only New Hartford ego led to the monstrous monument we have now. Time to de-fund the library

How can anyone make the NH Library run any more incompetantly then it is now?

-They give away money they should be spending on books and then claim poverty

-They have no magazines

-Their former Library Director thought he was in the CIA spying on people in the library

-They file false reports reports with NY State government

Can it get any worse? The New Hartford Library under Linda Romano is a three ring circus. How can anyone mess up something as simple as running a library?

Oh, just watch her. She isn't finished yet.

Linda will top herself shortly, take that to the bank. You have to admit, in a perverse way it has been hysterical... except for hemorrhaging taxpayer money. Has she missed antagonizing anyone yet? Probably not.

No magazines? We're doomed.

What kind of library doesn't have magazines?

A Library trying to artificially create a "Crisis" in order to generate public outrage against budget cuts. The Library Trustees actually believe that by putting the "This magazine is not available due to budget cuts" signs all over the magazine racks will create enough public outrage so that people will storm town hall and demand that the NH library budget be doubled. The Library Trustees actually voted to do just what I described.
Of course, the $16,000 in funding they gave away to their former Director could have paid for a lot of magazines but that solving the problem was never the intent of the NH Library Trustee Board

Why has the library controversy gone dark? No reports from the Board? Something fishy is going on.

We need a new Board that cares about making the library better... maybe a few less big egos/attitudes.

The taxpayers are entitled to know what is going on (or not). This has been a fiasco, and needs adult supervision.

When will Pat Tyksinski step in and get this back on track?

Went there to read a magazine, told me they don't have any. Discrimination. They just wanted to get rid of me. What library doesn't have magazines?

I went to the Waterville Library. What a great place! Very progressive too. The Watervile Library has a Astronomical Observatory with a high end telescope, a large solar power array to provide electrical power and get this, FULL MAGAZINE RACKS.

What about the New Hartford Library? Well they have: falsified reports to NYS, empty magazine racks, cash handouts to x-employees, anger, rule breaking, financial mismanagement and just over all incompetence.

How can little back country Waterville get it right while almightly New Hartford just screws it up?

I stopped by the Waterville Library last night. Wonderful place! I would also add in addition to the full magazine racks, telescope and solar power array the Waterville Library has a beautiful garden that is better kept up then NH library's run down so called garden. I'm going to the Waterville Library instead of the NH Library. Its worth the drive.

We should be ashamed of what our library as turned into. We need NEW LEADERSHIP immediately. How can you screw up a library this badly? OK, stupid question. Why do we New Hartford taxpayers tolerate the shenanigans? This is total BS.

Answer: You can't. There is not a thing in this county that is not a fucked up catastrophe well beyond the point of repair. Everything is going to fail here, and things are only going to become worse. There is no point or hope, and you know it. Anyone who says otherwise is fooling themselves and full of a lot of shit.
