Community Conversations

Over the next few months, the Town of Ulster Public Library is hosting a series of conversations with people from across the Town of Ulster community.

Each Community Conversation is an opportunity for us to better understand people’s aspirations for their community, the concerns they have and what they believe might make a difference in strengthening the community. We’ll take what we learn from these conversations and use it to help make our work in the community more effective.

We can’t promise the conversation will lead to a new program or policy, but we do pledge to get back to you with what we learn and how we’ll use what we heard.

If you are a Town of Ulster resident or business person and are interested in joining one of our Community Conversations please let us know by sending an email to or calling 845-338-7881.

Please indicate your date preference in your email.
