Nysca Book Discussion at Northville Public Library: Discussion of "Saturday" with Dr James Belflower of SUNYA. Free A long-time interest in establishing a Library in the village of Northville finally resulted in the formation of a group of interested citizens, about 1979-80, to begin planning for a facility. From 1980-1984, this group secured a site and building on South Third Street and started work on preparing the building and sorting and processing the books that had accumulated. The Northville Book Station opened to the public on September 22, 1984. In April 1986, a recommendation to the State Education Department Library Development Office to have the Book Station become a School District Public Library was approved. A proposition was presented to the NCS Board of Education and, with much community support, a budget and nine Library Board members were voted upon on June 10, 1986. A provisional 5-year charter was granted on September 28, 1986. Soon after, the Northville Public Library became the 14th member of the Mohawk Valley Library System. Steady growth of the library's holdings and programs followed. Michael S. Burnett (BA, MA, MLS) of Gloversville was hired and became Library Director in 1991 and in September of that year, the Library celebrated the receipt of its permanent charter from the State.
