Services By Email

Do we have your current email address? We currently offer the following services by email:

  • Notification when your Holds have arrived and are ready for you to pick up
  • Reminder email two days before your items are due, and the opportunity to renew them online if you need to (remember, there are limits on the number of renewals, and those titles with other Holds are not renewable)
  • Most recently, we have added an email notification when your library card is about to expire. You'll have the option to renew your card online, and can even enter in new information if you've changed address, phone number, etc.
Next time you stop by the Library, ask us to check your record for a current email address so that you can take advantage of these services, another benefit of your OWWL library card.

Notice The Difference?

Do you see anything different about our blog today? Up near the top? Our new name!

We have received our new charter from New York State's Department of Library Development, which means that we are now recognized as serving all of the people who live within the boundaries of the Sodus Central School District. To better recognize this expanded service area and honor our commitment to meet community needs, our library will now be known as the Sodus Community Library. And that's not the only change.

Starting November 1st, we'll be adding an additional 14 hours to our weekly schedule. We'll be open Monday-Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. Feedback from our long-range planning sessions and recent survey showed that residents wanted us to be open longer and more convenient hours. We're excited to be able to offer these extra hours, thanks to your support at our June vote.

The staff and I hope that you will stop by the Library soon - we'll continue to provide the same helpful, efficient service as in the past. Some things will not be changing!
