Library District Boundaries
The Clifton Park-Halfmoon Public Library is classified as a Special District Public Library, created by the State Legislature. Our library district consists of all of the Town of Clifton Park and the areas in the Town of Halfmoon that are not served by the Mechanicville or Waterford-Halfmoon School Districts.
Why is all of the Town of Halfmoon not included in our library district? The Mechanicville and Waterford Public Libraries are School District public libraries, so the library district boundaries are the same as the school district boundaries. If residents in these areas were also included in our district, they would be taxed twice!
Are residents of the Town of Waterford who are in the Shenendehowa School District part of the Clifton Park-Halfmoon Public Library District? No, residency in our library district does not follow the Shenendehowa School District boundaries.
