Please take five minutes to fill out this survey. F.O.C.U.S. Greater Syracuse is undergoing a community-wide project to make Central New York an age-friendly community and they want to hear from you. What would keep you in CNY?

Age-Friendly CNY Survey

Join us Tuesday, February 18 from 2:00-3:00 PM for the Library’s Annual Kids Book Swap and Ice Cream Social. Kids from the ages 5-15 may come in and swap their gently used books in exchange for another gently used book. After, they can enjoy ice cream and stay for Ron Cain’s Magic & Mystery Show from 3:15-4:00 PM.

Solvay Public Library is taking children’s book donations from now until the event. A box for these donations can be found up the stairs of the main, front entrance.

Both events are free to the public and sponsored by the Friends of the Solvay Public Library.
