Read a list of improprieties coming out about the library. Malfeasance, nepotism and more. Ask your TC for a copy.


A copy of what? What exactly are you saying?


Ask TC for full list-
Director Mullen violates fire code with edict that Library display case plastic interior light stay on all night to act as a ‘night light’.

Library employees process Library Foundation donation monies, municipal workers working for a private non profit.

Patron complaint of staff political conversations disappeared and not logged in to Board Minutes.

Petty cash discrepancies found by office administrator and Director not reported to Board Treasurer.

Library employees stockpile* PTO hours in excess of maximum number defined in Employee Handbook.

Full time Librarians are “forgetful” in recording PTO used on weekly schedule.

Director Mullen signs blank time sheets in advance of her absences from office on payroll week.

Board Trustee Ira Negin acts and votes on personnel issues which directly benefit his wife J. Negin who is a library employee.

Candidate Spann access and posts to Library Instagram social media site.

Library staff first to check out new materials increasing wait time for Patrons to have new materials.


Where is all the above recorded other than in this post? I would be curious to read it if it's a public record. If it's only here, who knows -- 90% of what is posted on this site is false, on every side of the political spectrum. But if it's real, what document do we ask to see?

Mr.Mulligan could care less, he is a Lame Duck and certainly portrays a disinterested Township Committee member at the meetings--------

Over the past year the Library saw the departure of 3 assertive Board of Trustee members and 3 talented staff members (Mrs Murphy NOT included in that number as she was dormant).

Now a 'Whistleblower' and a new Conflict of Interest policy at the Library?

Yes, Hamlet something is indeed rotten.
When will TC properly manage that Board and its under performing Library Director??

From Cranbury Public Library website:
MEETING NOTICE – SPECIAL MEETING Nov 07, 2019 - 7:00 p.m.
Cranbury Public Library
3. NEW BUSINESS
A. New Jersey Library Construction Bond Act
B. Review of “Whistleblower Statement” and Report
4. OPEN DISCUSSION PERIOD and/or PUBLIC COMMENT

Our library is a joke. Maybe we should just shut it down, join the county system and save the money.

Two Library Trustee terms expire today, yet no replacements pending.
TC new website features Library Annual Report, ok let's read it, oh no it's from 2015!

When will TC responsibly oversee the Library Board???
Hundreds of thousands of tax dollars annually diverted to an amateur Director and a clueless Board of Trustees.

Many Township departments run effectively. Why is the Library Board left unchecked in its habit and pattern of behaviors that has become dull and unproductive????????

All township appointments that expire are named when the TC reorganizes and chooses the new Mayor. For most appointments the Mayor makes the selection.

Well you can be sure that those who get appointed will be PRO Library schills who along with the "Library at any Cost" attitude will conspire with the very pro library mayor and committee to saddle the taxpayers with the expense of that new library without a vote from the taxpayers. Taxes without a vote!!!
The sad thing is that many of the originators who started this mess will be deceased before it gets done-----------

12 years ago the library benefitted from tax levy changes resulting in a windfall $300,000 increase in the annual library budget (approximately). In the first 2 years, they had so much extra money they didn’t know what to do, so they put it in an account and eventually used $600,000 to start the new library building fund (which they often conflate with donated funds). Then, for the next 10 years, they spent the extra money instead of saving it, on among other things, huge raises for the library staff. Meanwhile, during those 10 years, hours have been reduced and services have been cut.

If the library board had saved most of the money, they would have enough for a new library building. So, if you support a new library building, why are you not demanding accountability and fiscal responsibility from your library board? Why did you let them squander the millions of dollars that could have been used to build a new building? Why should the community trust the library board with millions more of our tax dollars?

Just look at how corrupt and inept the library board has been before anything has even been started. Could you imagine how much damage they would do to the taxpayers and community if this debacle ever went through. Stop the madness! No taxation without representation!

Let me help you out and support you in your cause.

"Dear Library Board Members, the cranbury.info lunatics want you all to resign because you are all incompetent. Do not worry about having nobody on the board, because it is a fact that cranbury.info lunatics don't want a library in town anyways."

I hope you found this helpful my friend.

Volunteering for the library board is a waste of time for anyone opposed to building a new library. You might just as well volunteer to be a dog in a cat musical.

There are 5 potential sources of funding for a new library building...
1. The County: They're out. The county would rather Cranbury close it's library and merge with the county library system.
2. The Library budget: As long as we don't choose option 1, the library has it's own dedicated budget and the board can do as they please. The board allocated $600k from the budget toward a new building.
3. Donations: In the last 10 year people have given about $1.7 million toward a new library.
4. The town: Thus far, the town has agreed to spend $450k to prepare the building site for a new library but has not agreed to close any more of the estimated $2.2 million funding shortfall.
5. The State: now that the state is opening up the grant money, perhaps Cranbury will get $2.2 million of it's money back from the state to build a library.

Of course, even if the state does come through with the cash, the town and/or library board will be on the hook for the difference between estimated building & moving costs and actual building & moving costs.

Stay tuned... the saga continues

Brick and Mortar Libraries are outdated, They have gone the way of phone books and index cards. This is just a continuance of jobs and pensions funded by the taxpayer. The current building should be turned into classrooms and an On-line library created.
