The future of the proposed new Victor Farmington Library will be decided by residents in a vote on May 17, 2022.
If approved, a 24,000-square-foot facility would be constructed at 160 School St. in the Village of Victor. The library’s current 9,000-sqaure-foot facility at 15 W. Main St. was designed to serve up to 15,000 people, but 25,000 residents now depend on the library for its wide array of services.
“We’re going to increase what we can do through a new library,” said the Victor Farmington Library director Tim Niver, according to Daily Messenger.
The proposed project is anticipated to be completed in 2024 with an estimated price tag of $16.6 million. The project tax rate is $0.82 per $1,000 assessed value. The library has collected $300,000 in pledges thus far.
Information sessions will be held in Farmington and Victor ahead of the May vote. The first will be held on Tuesday, March 15 at 6 p.m. at the Farmington Town Hall. The next is scheduled for Tuesday, March 30 at 7 p.m. at the Victor Town Hall.
