  library districts, in relation to changing the poll hours for the Hyde

  Section 1. Section 3 of chapter 97 of the laws  of  2001  establishing
two public library districts is amended to read as follows:

tion signed by not less than twenty-five voters qualified to vote in the
Hyde  Park  library district at a general town election from such public
library district hereby created requesting such an election,  the  board
of  trustees  of  the  Hyde  Park  free  library shall give notice of an
election to be conducted on the second Thursday in September of 2001. At
such election the issues shall be:
  a. whether the public  library  district  herein  described  shall  be
created or not;
  b.  whether  the  budget  therefor  proposed by such board of trustees
shall be approved or disapproved; and
  c. the election of two trustees.  The trustees of the Hyde  Park  free
library  shall  give  notice  of  such  election by the publication of a
notice in one or more newspapers having a  general  circulation  in  the
district  to  be served.   The first publication of such notice shall be
not less than thirteen days and not more than twenty days prior  to  the
date  of  such  election. In addition, the board of trustees of the Hyde
Park free library shall  cause  copies  of  such  notice  to  be  posted
conspicuously  in  five  public places in the district at least thirteen
days prior to the date of such election. Such notice shall  specify  the
time  when and the place where such election will be held, the issues to
be decided at such election and the hours during which the polls will be
open for receipt of ballots. The board of trustees of the Hyde Park free
library shall prepare the ballots for such elections and the polls shall
remain open for the receipt thereof at all elections  from  [seven]  TWO
