To Visit or Not?

The snow is still falling, and the wind is still howling!

If you need a new book or video or just need to get out, come see us.  (Just remember that if the Sodus School District is closed due to weather, we also close.)  If you want to stay inside, but have something due, you can renew online.  If you don't have computer access at home, give us a call and we'll do the renewal for you.  If someone has a hold on a title, of course, we will not be able to renew your item.

If you have a Kindle, Nook, or other device, click on the OWWL2go owl with the headphones in the right-hand column of this blog and check out an audiobook or eBook.  There are hundreds of free titles to choose from.

Whether you're planning to visit us or not, keep watching out the window - spring really is just a few weeks away!

Restore Library Aid Funding in the FY14-15 Budget!

State library aid is now at 1997 levels, and $20M less than state Education Law mandates. Libraries are a core piece of our state’s educational system, yet in a year where education funding increased 3.8%, library funding suffered a 4.7% reduction. Merely restoring the $4M cut by Governor Cuomo still leaves library funding drastically short of the $102M mandated in education law, and reverses years of progress towards full funding. Despite the talents and dedication of librarians across the state, it is becoming increasingly difficult to provide 21st century libraries with 20th century funding.
We hope you agree that New York's libraries are essential for success and will contact your elected representatives and tell them you support funding for libraries.  Just click on the above graphic and then on the "Take Action" button.  Thank you!
