New Bench

Thanks to a 2020 grant from the Tri-County Arts Council we have this lovely new bench made by local artist Tracy Fiegl. Come sit a spell, there’s even an outlet to charge your devices and our wifi is always on. (*This project was made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the NYS Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the NYS Legislature and administered by Tri-County Arts Council.)

Hot Spots

We’re very excited to announce that we have 2 Verizon WiFi HOTSPOTS available for checkout, all thanks to a grant from the Foundation for Southern Tier Libraries! These hotspots can connect up to 10 wifi enabled devices and provide free internet as long as you’re not in a “dead zone”. Feel free to ask us for more details!
