Canastota Library Happenings!

The Canastota Seed Library’s 4th Annual Plant Swap will begin May 13th from 1 – 8pm.  All types of seedlings, perennials, house plants and root divisions are accepted and may be “swapped” for a different type of plant to try.  The Plant Swap will take place near the front of the library!  Stop in for your seeds today!




Enjoy the beautiful artwork of Rosemary Aubeuf during the month of May in our Lawson Community Room.  The display is open daily during library hours.  Please stop in and see some of the works of this talented local artist!




During all of May, Canastota High School student Tyler Lynd’s art will be displayed in the Crow’s Nest Gallery.  The gallery is located at the top of the stairs on the second floor.
