Due to the chilling cold and the challenge of heating an old building, our family movie, Cinderella, will be shown in our children’s library, downstairs. Please bring your snacks, covered drinks and other comfies, as usual. We look forward to enjoying the movie with you in cozy, warm area. See you tonight!

ADOPT AN E-BOOK OR AUDIO BOOK!

Did  you know that the Clinton-Essex-Franklin Library System includes 30 public library members? Or that they are our main resource for sharing books among each other? The CEFL system is proud to offer E-books and audiobooks to our patrons. These include best sellers, holiday classics, digital audio books and more. Right now our inventory of holiday classics is begging for a bit of freshening up and some expansion.

Just think how nice it would be to share a hot chocolate and a holiday audio book as a family! For a donation of 25.oo dollars or more the name of your honoree will be in the note field for a designated title. You can simply mail a check to CEF Library System, 33 Oak Street, Plattsburgh, NY 12901. Add “Holiday Honoree” to the memo line on your check and  make sure you include the name of the honoree
