Springtime in Wayne County!

From our Digital Archive of local newspapers:

"There is no place on earth as delightful as Wayne county--in springtime.
Local chamber of commerces may sing the praises of Florida and California, poets may exult over the South Sea Islands, Tempe and the vales of Arcady--Wayne county excels them all--in springtime.
Travel to Timbuctoo, to exotic lands east or west, of all the lands on earth--in springtime Wayne is best."  

~Quoted from the Newark Courier-Gazette on page 6 in the June 5, 1947 issue of The Record.

Snow Day Wednesday, March 15!

"The weather outside is frightful," and it's keeping us closed for a second day.  Please stay off the roads if you can!  If you'll be inside all day, start learning a new language using one of our Mango language courses, or learn more about your family by searching our HeritageQuest Online or the newspaper archive.  Of course, you can never go wrong just curling up with a good book!

Snow Day Tuesday, March 14

The Sodus Central School District is closed due to the winter storm, so the library will not be opening today.  Please don't get out on the roads to return our materials!  After the storm we'll backdate your returns, and no fines will be charged for today.  If you can get online, you'll still have access to our OWWL catalog, your account, our digital newspapers, HeritageQuest Online, Zinio magazines, and OWWL2go downloadable audiobooks and eBooks.
