Elmira Library Renamed

     On Thursday night, dozens of people packed into the district library board meeting to voice their thoughts on bringing back the old "Steele Memorial Library" name.
     After a public comment period, and a 600 signature petition, the library board voted on a resolution to bring back the old name. The board passed the resolution, 9-2, with the crowd applauding the results.
     After the name change several months ago, the building always kept the "Steele Memorial Library" name, but publications and the website changed to "Central Library", now, those changes will be reversed.
     The library district board also reaffirmed that the "Horseheads Free Library" name will remain the same.
