On these snowy and blustery days, remember to check for school closings before you head out for the Library; we are closed when the Sodus Central School District closes.

This New York State Children's Choice Award will be co-sponsored annually by the Youth Services and School Library Media Sections of the New York Library Association. Nominations for the 2008 awards - a second category is being added for teens - will begin on March 1, 2007.
If you've never read Charlotte's Web, be sure to add it to your list of "Must Reads." You're never too old to read a great children's book!
Congratulations to our colleagues at the Ontario Public Library, whose team placed first in the adult division at today's 8th Annual Wayne County Rotary Spelling Bee. The ten Rotary Clubs in Wayne County sponsored this morning's event at Eastview Mall as part of their program to call attention to illiteracy and to raise money for adult education services within the County.
The Palmyra-Macedon Rotary homepage states, "Illiteracy costs our nation's businesses and taxpayers approximately $20 billion per year. In Wayne County alone, the local Literacy Volunteer affiliate tells us there are as many as 28,000 long term residents, one in nine, who cannot read or write well enough to function on the job."
Kudos to the Ontario team, Ruth Schutt, Michele Goodenough, and Kris Moeller, for their dedication to supporting literacy, both in and out of their library.

It's too cold out there even for this guy!
When the Sodus Central Schools close due to extreme weather, the Sodus Free Library is also closed. Please stay inside where it's warm and cozy, and we'll look forward to seeing you at the Library tomorrow (unless we get the foot of snow one meteorologist predicted and the schools are closed again!).

"Phil's official forecast as read 2/2/07 at 7:28 a.m. at Gobbler's Knob:
El Nino has caused high winds, heavy snow, ice and freezing temperatures in the west.
Here in the East with much mild winter weather we have been blessed.
Global warming has caused a great debate.
This mild winter makes it seem just great.
On this Groundhog Day we think of one thing.
Will we have winter or will we have spring?
On Gobbler's Knob I see no shadow today.
I predict that early spring is on the way."
