DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- Voters will decide on Tuesday, Nov. 3, whether four eastern Dutchess libraries should get increases in annual contributions from their towns.

In Beekman, voters will be asked whether or not the town's annual budgetary funding to the Beekman Library should be increased by $17,871, which would bring the total figure to $380,000

In Washington, voters will be asked whether the town's funding to the Millbrook Library should be increased by $100,000, which would more than double the total annual contribution to $184,000.

In Dover, voters will be asked whether the town's annual contribution to the Dover Plains Library should be increased by $50,000, which would bring the total amount to $275,000.

In Stanford, voters will decide whether to increase the town's annual contribution to the Stanford Free Library by $19,000, which would bring the total figure up to $142,000.
