The Library is Building a New Ramp!

The library will be constructing a new ADA compliant ramp to better serve our community. Construction will start on April 1st and last for a few weeks. There will not be a ramp available during the construction. Patrons will have to use the front door to enter which requires climbing steps. If you are unable to ascend the steps and need to borrow materials or use library services during this time, please call the library at 315-649-5454 and we will bring your items to your car, We look forward to the new ramp providing a safer entrance to our building and are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
