Canastota Library Happenings


Libraries are a gathering place in the community,  frequently bringing together significant numbers of people. In order to minimize opportunities for transmission,  and to protect community members’ health and library employees, the Canastota Library Board of Trustees is closing the library to the public until further notice based on guidance from the Governor’s office.



You may still use your MidYork Library card to access online resources available through our website, such as:  Hoopla, RB Digital, Overdrive, and Transparent Languages.



While we can’t do storytime here at the library, you can still enjoy storytimes with your child online! 

The best of children’s literature is now on your computer or mobile device.  Enjoy a new picture book free every day on NYS Library’s Day by Day site at:



You can now hold on to your borrowed books, dvds, magazines (and any other thing you may have borrowed from us) until March 31st!  Don’t worry about returning those items to us now!  And, if you’ve ordered something, we will keep it here for you until after we’ve reopened!  Stay safe and healthy!
