N.Y. Education Law Section 267
Local neglect


If the local authorities of any library supported wholly or in part by state money fail to provide for the support of such library and the public usefulness of its books, the regents shall in writing notify the trustees of said library what is necessary to meet the state’s requirements, and on such notice all said library’s rights to further grants of money or books from the state shall be suspended until the regents certify that the requirements have been met; and if said trustees shall refuse or neglect to comply with such requirements within sixty days after service of such notice, the regents may remove them from office and thereafter all books and other library property wholly or in part paid for from state moneys shall be under the full and direct control of the regents who, as shall seem best for public interests, may appoint new trustees to carry on the library, or may store it, or distribute its books to other libraries.
