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.

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).

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately upon enactment.
