Melanie Lekocevic in The Daily Mail reports that voters in Athens decide on the D.R. Evarts Library budget in an election Tue., Oct. 22 from noon until 9 p.m. The proposed budget includes a $4,600 increase to upgrade computers for library patrons. “The proposed 2014 budget covers increases in core operating and facility expenses for the upcoming year,” Board President Sue Palmer said. “Beyond these, the library uses its anticipated grants and donations to cover programming, extra technology, additions to the permanent collection and capital projects.” There are also three seats on the board to be decided, with two incumbents, Jane Hale and Charles D’Agostino, seeking re-election, and no one else running. The vote is at the library at 80 Second St. in Athens. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
