The Albert Wisner Public Library’s annual election will be held on Tues., June 9 in conjunction with the Warwick Valley Central School District’s annual election. The Library’s election of two trustees will be on the ballot. Library Trustees are elected to serve a five-year term of office. The candidates for two seats on the Library’s Board of Trustees are incumbent Nora Aman-Gurvich and Mark Damia.
“It has been a privilege to be an elected Trustee of the Albert Wisner Public Library for the past 10 years. During this historic and unprecedented time, maintaining the needs of the patrons takes reimagining traditional ways of serving the community,” said Nora Aman-Gurvich. “The thoughtful response to community needs and priorities, and the true compassion and devotion of the staff will always set this library apart from others, and why it remains the best small library in America.
“I am a 35-year resident of Warwick and an information technology professional with over 40 years of experience. My technical and management expertise make me uniquely qualified to serve as a board member. With the challenges that lie ahead of us, I believe the library will continue to strengthen itself as a trusted source of knowledge, digital media, and safe entertainment,” said Mark Damia.
