Weedsport Free Library: A new storytime and more fall programs – The Citizen

We hope everyone has enjoyed summer as much as we have at the library as we look toward fall!

In September we celebrate Library Card Sign-up Month. Having a library card can give you access to so many free resources in addition to books. With a library card you can borrow museum passes, a New York State Empire Pass, a mobile hot spot for home internet use, Kindles for e-content, games, a telehealth kit and more! During September, those registering for a first-time library card will be entered for a drawing to win an Amazon gift card. During this time, we’d also like to show appreciation to our existing card holders. Stop into the library and enjoy a treat. Please note that the library will be closed for Labor Day on Monday, Sept. 5.

Our next Senior Cinema will be held at the library at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 6. We will feature the adventure/comedy film “The Lost City” starring Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum. All are welcome, and popcorn will be served!

Weedsport Free Library will be taking part in “The Great Give Back,” which is a statewide initiative for public libraries to participate in a day of service. From Sept. 15 through Oct. 15 we will be hosting a donation drive at the library to support the Finger Lakes SPCA of CNY’s cats and dogs. During this time, we invite you to drop off any item(s) from the wish list found at flspcaofcny.org/our-pet to our collection bin, excluding blankets and towels. Thank you in advance for helping these pets in need.

The library will be at the Trolley Park Market on Saturday, Sept. 17, starting at 9 a.m. Stop by to visit local vendors, pick up free books and a take-and-make craft, and see what else is new at the library.

Our charity knitting group will meet from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 27. Feel free to join this friendly group.

The library will be hosting a fall perennial and houseplant swap for two weeks from Monday, Sept. 26, to Saturday, Oct. 8. We invite you to bring a houseplant or perennial to the library to share, fill out a label and take home a new plant to love.

We had such a great time with our “Oceans of Possibilities” summer reading program! Thank you to all who participated! If you haven’t turned in your reading log/punch card, there is still time! Come to the library and receive your prize and certificate for a free Italian ice from Muzzi’s D’Italia Ice. Reading logs and punch cards will be accepted until Sept. 17.
