MASSENA - The Massena Public Library will reopen tomorrow morning.

The Massena Town Council decided unanimously at a special meeting Wednesday afternoon to retain retired director Paul L. Schaffer on an interim basis and reopen the facility. The town will pay Mr. Schaffer to work three hours a day at a rate to be determined at a meeting next week, Supervisor Joseph D. Gray said.

The Town Council had closed the library last Friday, effective Monday, because it lacked a director and a functioning board of trustees. Director Lynn Fountain and several board members had all resigned in the last few weeks.

Mr. Gray said the entire board was glad to reopen the library, which will resume its regular hours.

“Nobody felt good about closing the library,” he said. “The important thing is, we’re moving forward.”
