Caz Public Library gears up for Fourth of July

All area residents will find something of interest at the Cazenovia Public Library during the Fourth of July holiday festivities — movies, museum tours and the Teddy Bear Parade.

The library will be closed on July 4, but at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 5, the ever-popular “Tinker Bell” will be shown in the library’s Community Room.

Those interested won’t want to miss the fantastic world of Pixie Hollow, a place where fairies constantly create the beauty of the four seasons. Bound to delight the entire family, Tinker Bell is rated “G” and runs for 70 minutes.

Also on July 5 — and again on July 6 —Library Director Betsy Kennedy will conduct museum tours for the public beginning at 10 a.m. with the focus on the Library’s Egyptian Collection. Hen, the Library’s very own mummy, has been a part of the Library family for a very long time, and most Cazenovians know him well. But to the museum’s many out-of-town visitors, he is nothing short of spectacular and has always been so — even a hundred years ago — as noted in the May 30, 2012 Cazenovia Republican.

“One of the show places in Cazenovia is the Public Library. Here guests in town may spend a quiet hour reveling in the study of books and antiques. Chief among these curios is the Egyptian mummy, the gift of the late Mr. Hubbard. This is the one thing in Cazenovia that does not change — progress. New firms and faces are noticed by former Cazenovians coming back for a visit, but the mummy greets one with as much cordiality as upon the first meeting.” (Cazenovia Republican May 30, 1912)

Kennedy invites everyone to join her on these tours and promises to give the inside scoop on Hen and the many other Egyptian artifacts that are a part of the library’s Museum of Curiosities.
