BILL NUMBER:S7220

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to dissolve the Bancroft public library and to transfer its assets to a
newly established Bancroft public library

PURPOSE:
To dissolve the Bancroft public library in the town of Salem and
transfer all assets, holdings, and belongings to a newly-created
Bancroft public library.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 of the bill dissolves the Bancroft public library of Salem,
which was created by the board of regents pursuant to title 2 of
chapter 529 of the laws of 1889. It then transfers all of said
library's assets to the newly created Bancroft public library, which
was granted a five-year provisional charter by the board of regents
on December 13, 2011.

Section 2 of the bill makes these changes effective immediately upon
enactment.

JUSTIFICATION:
The existing Bancroft public library in Salem was created through the
laws of 1889, and must be dissolved with all assets transferred to
the newly created Bancroft public library so as to fully comply with
the regulations that would allow it to become a member library in the
Southern Adirondack Library system (SALS). The newly created library
was granted a five-year provisional charter on December 13, 2011.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately upon enactment.
