Library Advocacy Day 2015

The New York Library Association sponsors an annual Library Advocacy Day  in Albany.  Library representatives from around the state convene to rally their legislators and senators to support higher funding levels for libraries. 

Governor Cuomo's Executive Budget proposed flat library funding at $86.6 million while proposing a 4%+ increase for education.  This falls quite short of the $102.6 million required by NYS Education Law based on census data.  As public libraries chartered by the NYS Department of Education, we say LIBRARIES ARE EDUCATION - we provide technology, materials and programming that support our local students and allow other individuals to continue independent learning and self-enrichment.

Is Spring on its way yet??

Well - even if the snow's still flying, you can always come in to the Children's Library and find things to do.  We have craft books, cook books, winter picture books, and more.  The DVD shelves are full of great selections for those cabin fever afternoons.  Take a look at the children's event tab at the top of the page for book groups, concerts, chess club, crafts, and more.  We are always happy to see you!  Weather permitting, of course...

Better Than Google
