Central Islip, NY – August 28, 2013 – Suffolk County Legislator Rick Montano (D-Brentwood) was recently re-appointed by New York State Unified Court System Chief Administrative Judge, A. Gail Prudenti, to the Suffolk County Court Law Library Board of Trustees.
Montano was re-appointed to another two-year term that commences October 3, 2013. Article 21 of the Judiciary Law provides for a designated Court Law Library in each county of the State that is to be open to the public. The law libraries’ chief mission is to contribute professional library services to the process of providing just and timely resolution of all matters before the courts.
Trustees provide assistance to the Administrative Judges on issues relating to the operation of the libraries. They also assist in developing local access guidelines for each court law library, reflecting court operations, resources, facilities available for library service, as well as the needs of the public.
“It is an honor for me to be re-appointed to this prestigious board for another two-year term,” Montano said. “As an attorney by profession and an elected official, I will continue to perform my duties as designated to ensure the public has adequate access to vital information needed to navigate the court system.”
