Spring is here and the bikes are out! We want you to be safe, so Deb Kogut, an educator from the Onondaga County Traffic Safety Board, will be here to talk about bike safety. She will also have helmets available and demonstrate the proper way to wear one.
The program is free and open to all ages.
Helmets will be available for purchase. The cost will be $10 or $6 for people qualifying under low income guidelines.
There are few services provided free to the public that offer a more positive or lasting impact on our lives than our local libraries.
Every day across the country, libraries open their doors to everyone: children, parents, seniors, teachers, students, writers, artists, job seekers, entrepreneurs, readers, gamers, movie lovers and travel buffs.
With a library card, anyone can have easy access to an endless supply of books, magazines, newspapers, music, media, e-books and the internet.
Libraries are trusted places used for meetings, events, art exhibits, lectures, tutoring and quiet studying sites.
Visit the library during National Library Week to see what’s new and celebrate your library!
The library will be closed in honor of President’s Day on Monday, February 18.
If you’re looking for the heart of any community, look no further than the local library. It’s the one place in America where the doors are open to everyone, whether you’re:
> filling out an online job application or using resources to help you pass your job certification exams;
> learning skills to prepare you for a lifetime of learning in our digital world or a grandmother learning to e-mail your grandson overseas;
> studying for college exams or living somewhere where the library provides your only access to education beyond the high school level;
> researching your past or looking for citizenship and a new home in America;
> the richest person in America, or someone without a home,
Solvay Public Library is there for you. It is America’s great equalizer, providing everyone the same access to information and opportunities for success.

Kids bring in a gently used book or books to swap for another. This is a fun, free way for kids to get a gently used new book to read. The Friends of the Library will also be having a mini-book sale of children’s books.
Afterwards kids are invited to stay for “Mike Carter’s Magic & More!” program from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Both events are free and open to kids ages 5 to 17.
The Solvay Public Library Board is meeting Monday, December 17 at 6:30 p.m. in the library’s community room. Library Trustees will be discussing the transition of the current Library Director position. The meeting is open to the public.
