1.47 Library Budget Subject to Vote (Prior Year)

Hint – The 1.47 budget information will be identical to the 2020 report if the answer to 1.46 is no.

1.49 Has the Library experienced any unusual circumstance? Per DLD, do not include COVID-19 as an unusual circumstance, unless it created a further unusual circumstance such as the Director was out for 6 months, or perhaps a heavy weeding was done, a fire, flood, etc.
