Choose, Give, Matter

Along with many other local nonprofit organizations, our library will be participating in ROC The Day, an epic one-day giving event which will take place on December 8th. Sponsored by ESL Federal Credit Union and powered by United Way of Greater Rochester, ROC The Day will be the first event of its kind in New York State, and offers an opportunity to make an end-of-year gift to help advance worthwhile endeavors. We hope you will consider giving to this campaign.

Important Dates

For several months, representatives from the community, the Library's Board of Trustees, and staff have been working on plans to alleviate our currently overcrowded conditions and to provide handicapped accessibility to all areas of our facility. Many of you have stopped by to see the concept plans drawn up by LaBella Associates to deal with these problems. Important dates are:

December 1, 7 p.m. - Public Hearing in the Library's meeting room
December 8, noon to 9 p.m. - Referendum for permission to proceed and to authorize borrowing

Everyone is welcome to attend the Hearing and encouraged to vote on the 8th. If you have any questions concerning the project, please let me know.

Computer Problems Today

We apologize for the inconveniences you're experiencing today while our system is down. Don't worry about being overdue if you return your DVDs today. If we aren't able to check them in before closing today, we will backdate their return tomorrow. You will still be able to check things out today - you just won't receive your printed receipt. Thanks for your patience!
