Computer Class (course to be determined) by Nioga instructor Sara Taylor

Thursday, May 30, 2019 from 4:00 to 6:00 PM

Your input is needed! We’ve managed to schedule Nioga’s helpful and understanding computer trainer to teach a class here at the Library. We need to know what type of class you’re most interested in! Do you need help with your handheld device? Need to move beyond the basics of Word or Excel? Or do you just want to start from the beginning and learn your way around a computer? If you’re able to take a class on this day and time, your vote counts! Call or come in and let us know. Thank you!

Get Growing! Seed Starter Program and Seed Bank

Thursday, April 25, 2019 at 6:30 PM

Ever tried growing your own garden plants from seed? Katie Oakes of Orleans County Cornell Cooperative Extension will be here with free supplies to help you learn everything you need to know to get those seeds growing. This is a great program for kids and parents to enjoy together! Katie will then leave a “seed bank” of different varieties of vegetable and flower seeds for visitors to the library to select any time, to take home this growing season.

Field of Flags Memorial Weekend Display

Flag orders taken at Library and from any Lions Club member, now through Monday, May 20, 2019

Lyndonville proudly honors its family members who have given the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. Since 2016, the Library has sponsored the striking visual display of 50 American flags fluttering in formation across the water from Veterans Park. This year, the Lyndonville Lions are helping us publicize this endeavor and take flag orders.

A new 3’ by 5’ nylon flag with sewn stripes and embroidered stars, including pole and bracket, may be purchased by the public for $50 each. A laminated tag indicating your name and that of the person you are honoring will be attached to the flag, which will be flown from Friday, May 24, through Memorial Day, May 27th, in the Field of Flags downtown. The flag is yours to keep, OR you may instead choose to “rent” a flag, with tag and your inscription attached, for $30.

Many thanks to our Lions Club members for their assistance, and to Michael Basil for his generous donation of flags.
