The Firemen will blow the fire truck’s horn when they arrive at your street. Please wear a mask and greet Santa on your front lawn.
Fall Leaf Scavenger Hunts – Can you find these leave outside? We put together a scavenger hunt of leaves that can be found in New York State. Use on your next nature walk or as a coloring page! Print outs are available for free in the library or download the page here.
Book Sale – The fiction portions of our ongoing book sale are open again! Please excuse the mess as we continue to sort through a massive book donation, but browsing is once again possible. Nonfiction books are harder to get to, but let us know if you are looking for a specific title. Prices have stayed at $0.25 paperbacks, $0.50 hardcovers, or as many as you want for $1, available during regular library hours.
Toad Abodes – The library flower beds this fall had an overabundance of slugs and a lack of natural predators. To help encourage the natural ecosystem in the Spring, we will be making some Toad Houses! We are looking for some volunteers to decorate terra cotta pots with non-toxic materials. After the pots are decorated, they are flipped upside-down and propped up with some rocks to create a cave-like house. You may decorate 1 pot and return it to the library, or decorate 2 pots and keep one for your home. Stop by the library for more details! Extra: Check out this article from the National Wildlife Federation.
We are looking for fundraising volunteers to join our Friends of the Library group. If you are interested in supporting your local library in this way, please speak to the librarian. Time commitments are on an at will basis. Thank you for supporting your library!
