A Message from the Board President

Welcome to the library website. We are a small library with big plans! Housed in a beautiful old building in the historic hamlet, our goal is to be a community center serving the various age groups and interests of the members of our town. In addition to traditional library and computer services, we have set up a loan-a-toy program for area children, hosted the local History Book Club, and started a Fiber Arts group for anyone interested in knitting, needlepoint, or cross stitch. We offer a summer series for local children and challenge our young readers to participate in our Bookworm program. We present programs and events of special interest such as computer workshops, author talks, and travelogues. Currently we are waiting to learn if we have received a New York State Library Construction grant which will enable us to update our building so we can further expand our services and offerings.

We invite you to stop by, meet our Librarian, Tom Mangano, Library Assistant, Hillary Hollister-Hinge, and Board members and volunteers. We encourage your suggestions on how we can further improve our offerings. To better serve our community, we need your involvement and support.
