Join us at the Library as we host Sarah McCormick from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County as she presents her program, Oceans of Possibilities: “Water is all around us.

Participants will play a game to learn about the water cycle and how their actions affect it. A book reading of Hey, Water will accompany this program.”

This program is recommended for children ages 5 to 19.

Can you find Ozzy the Octopus?

Because he is an octopus, he is very smart, BUT Ozzy is having a hard time following the Library Rules! We need your help! When you find Ozzy, tell a librarian! Is Ozzy following a rule this week? You will be awarded a small prize if you can tell us if he is following a Library Rule or not. Remember, please don’t touch him or he will lose his magic-and make you a bit wet and slimly.
