Tiffany Greenwaldt-Simon reports for Columbia-Greene Media that Durham is losing its library and the Durham Task Force. The task force runs the Reading Room and organizes the annualFourth of July Parade, Christmas in Durham project, and beatification programs in the Greene County town. Durham Task Force President Linda Sutton reports the group is down from 15 members to one, and said, “There’s a lack of participation.... No one is available to help." The Reading Room was the only public library in Durham, and it had Wi-Fi, computers, and equipment to make copies, besides books. Sutton would not name a different group she said might take over some of the group's activities. She said, “I’m keeping my fingers crossed." Read more about this story at HudsonValley360.com.
