Yates Community Library Blog
The Library welcomes you to make us part of your summer activities, and our staff is so happy to see many are doing just that! It’s your choice: bring the kids to a regular Friday morning program; spread out with a picnic supper in the park on Monday concert evenings (thanks to GoArt! funding); or just take home a stack of books and movies to relax with!

The latest LYNDONVILLE READS is launching! This second offering in the Library’s one book/one community project is THE BELOVED WILD, by Orleans County author Melissa Ostrom. Starting now, readers can delve into this tale of an independent-minded teenage girl of two centuries ago, who devises a clever way to make her way, along with her brother, from their New England home to settle in The Black North: the area of the western NY frontier that would become Orleans County.
Then get set to meet Melissa and talk about her book with her at the library on Thursday, September 12, at 7:00 PM. This event will also be a feature of the 4th Annual Orleans County Heritage Festival.
Stop by for a copy of THE BELOVED WILD, and to learn more details!
