View the 2022 proposed budget

Qualified voters of the Middleburgh School District will vote on the 2022 library budget on Tuesday May 10, 2022 from 12:00 - 8:00 in the Community Room of the Middleburgh Library. 

We have three candidates running for open seats on the library board.

Sarah Beekman and her husband have lived in Middleburgh for over 30 years. For the last six years, Sarah has worked for WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) in Cobleskill, which is run through SCCAP. Before that, she was Program Coordinator for Literacy Volunteers of Schoharie County. For several years, she was a stay-at-home mom to her two now-grown daughters who attended, and graduated from, Middleburgh Central School.

As far as volunteerism, Sarah has previously been a member and president of Century Club, member and leader of Schoharie County La Leche League, was on the Strategic Planning Council of the Middleburgh Central School district and also volunteered in classrooms and ran the 1,000 Book Club, been a literacy tutor, lead the monthly book discussion at the Middleburgh Library, and been a docent at the Best House. Sarah also served as a member of the Board of Trustees of the Mohawk Valley Library System, which oversees 14 member libraries, including a term as its president.

Additionally, Sarah has previously served on the Board of Trustees of the Middleburgh Library, for 10 years, including a term as its president. She was chairman of the search committee that hired Terry Pavoldi, Middleburgh’s library director. Sarah would love to return to the Board to again support Ms. Pavoldi in her efforts to provide quality programming and services for our library patrons.
