As I write this, it is a sunny winter day and the New Year is beckoning. Looking back over 2010, it has been a very busy and eventful year for the Library. We completed our transition to the Onondaga Public Library System, saw the emergence of the Friends of the Library group, the launch of a new web site (www.Skaneateleslibrary.org), the implementation of an innovative fund raiser, "One for the Books" and an additional book sale "Dickens Christmas Holiday." We also initiated a Distinguished Service Award for outstanding volunteers, and added three computers for patron use. Two of these are portable an Apple iPad and a laptop computer for library use. These last two are the newest additions and we think you will love them.
The Skaneateles Library has been changing! Your comments in response to our Patron's survey done last March provided us with many good ideas and suggestions and you can expect to see significant innovative developments in 2011.
Best wishes in the New Year to all our loyal patrons and supporters!

Adding Convenience for our Patrons
You are in a rush and have a thousand things to do. Among the chores on your "to do" list are your library books which are due. You may not have time today to find a spot to park near the library and drop off your books. Starting later in 2011 you will be able to drop your books off at our new drop box which will be conveniently located just east of the USPS blue mailbox between Key Bank and Byrne Dairy. Watch for more details regarding when our new drop box will be installed and become operational.
We thank Key Bank for allowing us to use their property for placement of our off-site drop box.
