World War I Programs

With so much written and produced about World War II, the history and importance of the first World War is often overlooked. Researcher Victor Harris will be presenting two programs on World War I at 7 p.m. on consecutive Thursdays in October. On October 4th, Harris will present “A Higher Form of Killing: Chemical Warfare During World War One,” which will examine life in the trenches, new military technologies of the time, and the effects of these new weapons. On October 11th, “Over Here, Over There” will contrast the country’s attempt to preserve democracy in Europe with the hysteria and paranoia that swept America at home. Reservations are not required for these free programs. Thank you to the Friends of the Sodus Free Library for sponsoring these programs.

We're Closed, But ...

Yes, we're closed for the long weekend. However, if you are out shopping the sales and see a book you'd like to read (but not necessarily buy), head to your computer when you get home and place an OWWL Hold on that title. On Tuesday, all of our libraries will be checking our lists of books with reserves, and sending them out in our daily deliveries. The book that caught your eye will be waiting for you at our Library in a matter of days, and in some cases, hours!
