Troy Public Library to Close Sycaway Branch
Troy's Sycaway library branch to close in cost-cutting move. (Albany Times-Union, 12/13/2011)
Excerpt: The Troy Public Library will close its Sycaway branch in January after the trustees adopted a 2012 budget Tuesday night that cuts spending by 11 percent.
The library board cited declining patronage at the Sycaway branch, cramped space in its location at School 18 and heating problems in the decision to shut the branch.
The board selected this option instead of an alternative that would have reduced hours at both the Lansingburgh and Sycaway branches.
