Canastota Library Happenings!

On the first Wednesday of every month, Miss Angela offers a Baby Sensory Play Time at the Library.  The fun starts at 10am as babies and their caregivers can visit over 20 play stations. Babies learn hands on and sensory play activities let them explore on their own and learn about the world around them.   


The wonderful nature photography of the Great Swamp Snappers (from the Great Swamp Conservancy) is on display in the Lawson Community Room for the month of December.  Please stop by to enjoy some of the work from this talented group!




The Canastota Library Ukulele Extraordinary Strummers (CLUES) are meeting and learning on Saturdays at the library.  Sessions will be held on December 7 and 14.  At 1pm, beginners classes are held.  At 2pm, the Clues Club meets to play fun songs and add new songs to their collection.  Instructor Deb Guarneri coordinates these groups.



Kids, ages 5 – 12 can sign up for the Kids Holiday Gift Shop Reading Program on November 11.  Kids earn points for reading their favorite books and then use those points to select holiday gifts for friends and families.  Stop in after November 11 for all the information!





Songs of the Season Holiday Concert with Women of Song will be held at the library on Tuesday, December 10 at 7pm.  Come out and sing with us and enjoy a night of carols and fun!  We’ll be on the second floor of the library!




The CLUES (Canastota Library Ukulele Extraordinary Strummers) Ukulele Holiday Concert will be held on Tuesday, December 17 at 7pm.  Our CLUES CLUB will play some wonderful carols and you are invited to come and sing along with us!  





On Tuesday, December 17 at noon, join us for a TED TALK by Kelly McGonigal.  The talk is “How To Make Stress Your Friend.”  Through her research, McGonigal has discovered people who believe that stress is bad for them have a higher mortality rate than those who see stress as healthy.  Feel free to bring your own lunch.  The library will provide cookies and coffee.
