Buy a little B’ville, support BPL

Looking for a great gift for a history buff or homesick friends and loved ones? Consider some of our local history materials. We are currently selling three DVDs: “Walking Tour of Baldwinsville,” “Oswego,-Oneida National Historic District Baldwinsville, New York,” and “Morris Machine Works.” Each DVD is $20 and the proceeds are shared with PAC-B, the local cable access channel. We also are selling two books by local author Robert Bitz “A History of Manufacturing in Baldwinsville and the Towns of Lysander and Van Buren” and “Transportation in Central New York and the Baldwinsville Area 1600 to 1940” for $15 each. All proceeds from book sales go to support the library.

Not so interested in history? The Friends of the Library offer a wide variety of delicious nuts, candies and trail mixes suitable for last minute gifts and filling your snack bowls.

Valerie Chism is the young adult librarian at the Baldwinsville Public Library.
