Elevator on Path to Being Fixed

E-mail Print

The Village of Garden City and the Garden City Public Library have been working together to repair the problems with the Library’s elevator and will hopefully have it up and running in approximately three to four weeks.

It has been a difficult time for seniors and the physically challenged, and a tremendous inconvenience for the public in general without an elevator running in the Library. However, the Village and Library both agreed that in its present condition the elevator was not safe for people to use.

To address the needs of the physically challenged, there are computers located on the main level in the Young Adult area with access to the Internet, word processing, and the Library’s catalog. Library staff can obtain audio-visual materials for you from the lower level. For Library programs, please check our website or call us for the program’s location as many of them are held on the lower level.

The Village and Library thank the residents of Garden City for their understanding and patience during the past month and a half. If the public has any questions, please call Library Director Lisa Paulo at 516-742-8405, ext. 210.

Property Taxpayer’s Checkup

E-mail Print

It’s time for a property taxpayer’s checkup! Come to the Library and hear Town of Hempstead Receiver of Taxes Donald X. Clavin Jr. speak about important issues related to taxes. On Tuesday, October 28 at 2:00 PM, Mr. Clavin will discuss such important issues as tax exemptions (seniors, Enhanced STAR, basic STAR, veterans, and home improvement), tax discounts, property-tax payment dates, and tax-payment options. Mr. Clavin will give residents an opportunity to ask questions and address any taxpayer concerns that they may have.

Mr. Clavin will return to the Library on Thursday, November 20 at 7:00 PM to discuss how to challenge your property-tax assessment, which could result in reducing your taxes. Again, Mr. Clavin will give residents an opportunity to ask questions and address any taxpayer concerns that they may have. Both of these programs are open to all and registration is not required.
