Round Lake LibraryWe have been a vital part of the Malta community for over a century. Founded in 1897, the Round Lake Library has served the community from its home in the Village of Round Lake, and the Library has provided traditional library services and programming.
Since becoming a SALS-member library in the 1990s, those services have expanded to include more interactive programming for children, teens, and adults; videos, DVDs, and audiobooks; and business services such as wireless internet access, fax, copy and printing, services, and quiet space to work.
The Round Lake Library has two locations: its original home at Clark House in the Village of Round Lake, and our new branch at the Malta Community Center.
Ballston Spa Public LibraryToday only about 1/3 of the people who use the library are village residents. Another third reside in the adjacent township of Milton. The remainder come primarily from the townships of Malta, Ballston, Galway and Charlton.
Between 60 and 90% of library funding still comes from the village in any given year. The towns of Milton and Charlton are regular contributors, as is the Ballston Spa Central School District, via budget proposition. A small amount is received annually from Saratoga County.
