The library is open again today! The library currently has two ways to borrow books: “Grab and Go” service allows you to choose your books online in the online catalog (you’ll need to log into your account to place a hold on the books you want). Staff members will pull them and leave them in the cabinet outside the library doors. You can find more detailed instructions here. We are also allowing appointments for in-person browsing for individuals or families. If you’d like to make an appointment to browse in person, call us at 315-986-5932.
Here are a few of the new books for children that have come in to the library recently. We invite you to check them out!

Young vehicle-enthusiasts will take pride in cruising through the simple, decodable text. Bright, bouncy art will help readers along the reading journey! Step 1 Readers feature big type and easy words for children who know the alphabet and are eager to begin reading. Rhyme and rhythmic text paired picture clues help children decode the story.
