Rochester NY – The Penfield Town Board will dedicate a new one-point-nine million dollar library this evening at the Penfield Community Center. Last January Penfield voters approved funding needed to make major improvements at the library, which included expanding the facility from over 17 thousand feet to 28 thousand square feet.As a result of this expansion, Penfield's town property tax rate increased eight cents for every one thousand dollars of assessed value.
