NOPL: A Combined Approach

January 2000 issue of Trustee

During the early part of 1996, a new library district was established. "Named the Northern Onondaga Public Libraries, NOPL," according to Rudy Tucci, vice-president of the 12 person board of directors, "was formed from an amalgamation of libraries in the communities of Cicero, Brewerton and North Syracuse."

In the summer of 1999, the three villages celebrated the grand opening of their three new library buildings. Today, NOPL is among the 50 largest libraries in New York State. Along the way the voters in the region approved a $4.25 million construction bond issue, became a special district library through an act of the legislature, witnessed a 50% circulation increase, greater use of all of the library's facilities and offered increased operating hours for the residents of the three communities served by the libraries.
