AN ACT to amend chapter 97 of the laws of 2001, establishing two  public
  library  districts,  in  relation  to  changing the poll hours for the
  Staatsburg library district


  Section  1.  Section  4 of chapter 97 of the laws of 2001 establishing
two public library districts is amended to read as follows:
  S 4. Election; Staatsburg library district. 1.    Upon  receipt  of  a
petition signed by not less than twenty-five voters qualified to vote in
the  Staatsburg  library  district  at a general town election from such
public library district hereby created requesting such an election,  the
board of trustees of the Staatsburg library society 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 Staatsburg library society 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 Staatsburg library
society 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  Staatsburg  library  society
shall  prepare the ballots for such elections and the polls shall remain
open for the receipt thereof at all elections from [seven]  TWO  o'clock
