Canastota Library Happenings

Our current month’s E Newsletter is now available.  If you are interested in receiving it through your email, please contact us to be added to the list.  We also have the ENews available here: April ENews


On Thursday, April 22, from Noon until 7pm, stop in to decorate a pot and plant a pollinator friendly seed for Earth Day.  We’ll be set up at the Round Table on the main floor near the Circulation Desk.  You can even take home additional pollinator friendly seeds to plant more at home. This event is sponsored by the Canastota Seed Exchange here at the library.



Our doors are now open but you can still use our curbside/parking lot assistance. Just call us when you arrive (315-697-7030) and we will check out your items and deliver them to your vehicle.  We are still requiring masks and social distancing when you visit.  We have a sanitizing process in place as well. 



Day By Day is a great website to use with your young child.  With interactive stories, songs and more, the site provides great early literacy opportunities.  Check it out with your child:  DaybyDayNY


The 9th Season of the Canastota Seed Exchange is open with more than 300 different types of seeds.  All of our seeds are open-pollinated and many are Heritage.  Please stop by during our regular Library Hours to browse and select seeds for your spring/summer garden!



We have added ways to access older Bee Journals  You can now enjoy reading some of the old issues of “the only newspaper that cares about Canastota.” The Library has digitized copies of the Canastota Bee Journal that you can access from your home computer! The years available include 1917-1921 and 1940-1971. To review these, simply click this link:  Canastota Bee Journals
