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.

Are you a frequent shopper at Redner's?

If you are, helping the library is as simple as giving us your receipts. Redner's will donate 1% of all eligible purchases made with a Save-A-Tape card to the library. Receipts must be less than 2 years old. It's a great way to help the library!!

In 2013, your Redner's receipts helped us raise over $800 for the library. Thanks and keep those Redner's Save-A-Tape receipts coming!!
