Libraries allow children to ask questions about the world and find the answers. And the wonderful thing is that once a child learns to use a library, the doors of learning are always open.

Library Parking Reminder

The library has limited parking spaces in the Loft Apartments parking lot located on Bitting Alley. Patrons are to use the spaces on the far right next to the bamboo and the three closest spaces in front of the recycling bin. The other spaces are for residents of the Lofts Apartments. Street parking is available on Main Street. Additional parking for storytimes and special events is available at Bitting and 4th behind First Niagara Bank. The Lofts have been generous with us by covering snow removal and parking lot lighting costs. Please do not park in the apartment spaces.
