Woodstock Library Board sees a vote of confidence

Woodstock Library Board sees a vote of confidence

While it was no landslide, Woodstock Library Board President Dorothea Marcus feels the October 3 trustee election was a vote of confidence for a new library building. After a revised tally, former board member Leslie Gerber received the most votes, 502, followed by Marcus, 493 and incumbent Howard Kagan, 484. All favor tearing down the current library building and constructing a new one.
