Library Board 


Tuesday, October 13, 2020 

12PM to 9:00 PM 
Palmyra Community Library

402 East Main Street, Palmyra, NY.




The Palmyra Community Library is holding an election for two library trustee positions, each for
a four-year term, on Tuesday, October 13 from 12 noon to 9 pm at the library, 402 E. Main St. The
candidates for the positions are: Mike Braell and Sarah Wimer.

Braell, a Palmyra native and retired Rochester School District ESOL teacher, is seeking his second
term as a library trustee. His community involvement includes volunteering at Grace House in Palmyra, the Pal-Mac Food Pantry, and the Wayne County Meals on Wheels program. He is currently vice-president of the library board and serves on the finance and policy committees.

Wimer, who is running for her first term as a library trustee, is employed as a Project Manager
at Manning and Napier Associates in Fairport. She and her family have lived in Palmyra since 2005.
Previously she served on the Palmyra Preservation Board and the Greater Rochester Celiac Support
Group Board of Trustees. She is currently the treasurer of the Palmyra Temple Association and has been a Girl Scout leader since 2013.

There will be no vote on the library’s proposed 2021 budget because the operating budget
amount remains the same as the 2020 budget amount. Qualified voters must reside in the Palmyra
Community Library district which encompasses the Town of Palmyra, excluding the portion that lies
within the Newark School District. Absentee ballot applications are available at the library. Applications must be received by October 6 if the ballot is to be mailed to the voter or by October 12 if the ballot is picked up in person at the library. For more information, call the library at 315 597-5276 or email
