Book Drop Relocated!

Due to the temporary closing of the main entrance, the BOOK DROP is now located near the E. Oneida Street entrance.

Library's Front Entrance to Close Temporarily

The library will be temporarily closing access to the front entrance located on East Second Street.  Our patrons should enter the library using the East Oneida Street entrance going down the stairway next to the lawyer’s office and walking across the grass.   This decision was made by the Board of Trustees due to concerns regarding the inside condition of the upper turrets located on the attic level at the front of the building.   We have been in contact with a structural engineer and have two additional engineers coming in to examine the turrets.
