Back to Board of Trustees

Matthew Weiss

President - 2nd Term, expires 2020

Matthew Weiss and wife, Vivian, have been Ossining residents for more than 30 years. I am an investment professional and volunteer and fundraiser for numerous non-profits in the Ossining community for the past 25 years.

As Ossining grows and changes, the Ossining Public Library works hard to provide you, our community of patrons, with new programs and resources. The Library staff and Trustees are proud to belong to Westchester County’s “Best” Adult Library for two consecutive years and Children’s Library this year (Westchester Magazine July 2017).

Being able to maintain and repair the physical building and grounds so we may provide you with a space where you can feel safe and comfortable can be fiscally challenging at times. I have learned in my professional career that budgeting and preventative measures can be cost effective with sufficient planning. This is the approach I use as a Trustee

The OPL Board of Trustees will continue to work hard to support staff development, improve technology, maintain and grow fundraising and enhance both internal and external communications. I hope we can accomplish all of these things while we carefully and intelligently spend your tax dollars.

The OPL is fortunate to have many volunteers who help “behind the scenes” to keep our popular programs running. I encourage you to join the Friends of the Ossining Public Library and share your enthusiasm for the OPL.

The Library celebrates its 125th birthday in 2018. The Library staff, Trustees and volunteers are all working hard to make the celebration of the Quasquicentennial a memorable one.

Thank you for your continued patronage.
