Old Mother Nature sure is keeping us guessing lately. The smell of Spring one day, the chill of Winter the next. Here at the library we are going on the assumption that the new season is indeed on its way and are filling the calendar with programs to entice you all to get out and about.Untitled


The Library is a place where kids and mos love to spend time.

Saving money is something we all like to do, and saving it by reducing energy costs is both good for your pocket and the world we share. Join us on Thursday, April 11th, from 7 pm to 9 pm, for Empower New York, a workshop offered by Cornell University Cooperative Extension of Delaware County. Registration is required, so call us at 845-676-3333, the Cooperative Extension at 607-865-6531, or send an email to It’s sure to be an informative evening, and attendees will receive 3 free CFL light bulbs to get them started.

Another familiar concern we hear about is long term care for ourselves and for our aging relatives. So often we don’t know where to turn, what is available how we will cope? On Thursday, April 18th at 2 pm a representative from the NY Connects program in Delaware County, affiliated with the Office for the Aging,  will be at the library to discuss available services and answer your questions. It’s never too early to acquaint yourself with this subject. For more information, or to sign up for this program, stop by the library or give us a call at 676-3333. Registration is not necessary.

We’re gearing up for Movie Nights at the Library. First up will be the award winning film Argo, in early or mid-May. Popcorn, anyone?  ~
