Library funding

The Seymour Public Library District is made up of the city of Auburn, the town of Owasco, and the portions of the towns of Sennett and Fleming that are within the Auburn Enlarged City School District. Residents and owners of property in the district are eligible for full borrowing privileges and have full access to the library’s collection, including movies, new books, and magazines.

People who live outside the district but within the area served by the Finger Lakes Library System are eligible for basic access borrowing privileges. The library encourages all residents of Cayuga County and other counties in the Finger Lakes Library System to make use of the library resources that are available to them. Although items such as movies, new books and magazines are reserved for use by patrons in the district, many other books and resources are available to residents who live outside the district.

Those who live outside the Finger Lakes Library System may obtain a card by paying an annual borrower’s fee of $60 for one card and $5 for additional cards in the household.

The library tax district supports our library operation and services. Our current operating budget is available here.
