CURRENT MASKING GUIDELINES are posted on the doors into the library. 

We are asking all of our patrons … vaccinated or not … to wear masks in the library at this time. 



Please donate a new, hardcover, children’s picture book for our local preschool class. (Please, no holiday themes.) We have 17 students in this year’s class.
We have 17 mittens marked girl or boy, which you can pick up at the front desk at the library. Put the mitten on the book you buy when you bring it to the library.  We would like to have the books by December 1, 2021. We will be wrapping them for presentation.
Suggested age range for a new, children’s picture book is 4-8 years old. You can purchase a book online or locally, including Longs’ Cards and Books in Penn Yan (which has a large selection.) 
Our Director, Sally Jacoby Murphy, will be presenting the books at the school on December 17, 2021, at a special program , which will include reading books to the students.
This is a great way to give a child the gift of reading with their very own book to take home.



Open every Saturday from 10 to 2

Specials will be posted in the Book Sale Rooms.

Enter at the lower end of the building, follow any posted instructions, and browse the extensive selections!


We’re grateful on this Saturday after Thanksgiving …
