THE SUMMER READING PROGRAM IS HERE!! Check out the SUMMER READING PROGRAM LINK for all the details.

Children are invited to come to the library and snuggle up with a reading loving therapy dog from PAWS of CNY while sharing one of their favorite books!

Bring your favorite book from home or choose one from the library and read it aloud to a furry friend. Dogs love all kinds of books!

Our PAWS friend is named Webber and he will be at Solvay Library the 4th Tuesday of each month from 3:00-4:00 p.m. Also present will be Bill Coe, Webber’s friend and handler.

Join us Sunday, June 8th for a free showing of the movie Monuments Men at 2:00 p.m. Cowriter and director George Clooney adapts author Robert M. Edsel’s book The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History to tell the incredible true story of the seven art historians and museum curators who went behind enemy lines during World War II on a mission to recover some of the world’s greatest works of art. With war raging in Europe, the Nazis have managed to plunder some of the biggest art collections on the continent. As the Third Reich begins to topple, the German army receives explicit orders that in the event of Adolf Hitler’s death, they are to destroy every work of art in their possession. Determined to prevent 1000 years of culture from going up in flames, American president Franklin D. Roosevelt approves a proposal by Frank Stokes Clooney to form a task force comprised entirely of art experts to enter Germany, recover the works of art, and ensure they are returned to their rightful owners. With little knowledge of modern weapons or warfare tactics, the ragtag squadron has their work cut out for them. Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, and Jean Dujardin also star.
