Canastota Library Happenings

The Canastota Public Library is now providing a monthly E Newsletter.  If you are interested in receiving it through your email, please contact us to be added to the list.  We also have the November ENews available here.  Nov ENews (2)


We are open. If COVID-19 Cases in the Town of Lenox go above 10, our doors will be locked and we will encourage curbside pickup. If you need to come into the library for services (computers, faxing, copying, etc), call for an appointment. Remember to wear a face mask, maintain distancing & use sanitizer.  If you are feeling ill, please do not visit the library.  


We ask that you continue to return items to the Book Drop.  All items received are put in quarantine before another patron may borrow them. We also quarantine items coming into the library from other libraries so Inter-Library Transfers may take a bit longer than previously. Thank you!


The Lawson Community Room will be filled with photos of the outdoors during November and December with a display by the Swamp Snappers Photo Club of the Great Swamp Conservancy.  These beautiful photographs of wildlife, flowers and landscapes will also be on sale for the duration of the exhibit.



We hope you stay safe and have a healthy holiday season.  The Canastota Public Library will be closed for Thanksgiving beginning Wednesday, November 25 at 4pm through Sunday, November 29th.




Our Book Fair is available for you to browse anytime that you visit the library.  It’s  great opportunity for you to grow your personal library at home or grab a few books for a friend or relative for the holidays.  This is a donation-based Book Fair.  All donations are used to help the library with operational costs.  The Book Fair is located on the lower level of the library.
