PURPOSE: To dissolve the Bancroft public library in the town of Salem and transfer all assets, holdings, and belongings to a newly-created Bancroft public library.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 of the bill dissolves the Bancroft public library of Salem, which was created by the board of regents pursuant to title 2 of chapter 529 of the laws of 1889.

Section 2 of the bill makes these changes effective immediately upon enactment.
JUSTIFICATION: The existing Bancroft public library in Salem was created through the laws of 1889, and must be dissolved with all assets transferred to the newly created Bancroft public library so as to fully comply with the regulations that would allow it to become a member library in the Southern Adirondack Library system (SALS). The newly created library was granted a five-year provisional charter on December 13, 2011.
