Library Funding

The annual operating budget of the Library is approximately $424,230, about 91% of which comes from the taxpayers of the Cazenovia School District.  The Library appropriation request is voted on each year, synonymously with the School District budget request.  The Library also receives support from the Village and Town of Cazenovia, the Town of Pompey, and Madison County.

Funds raised by the Friends of the Library is not used for the operating budget, but rather for discretionary items such as programing, purchase of equipment and special projects.
