Memorial Day at the Library!

Memorial Day has come and the start of summer has begun. On Memorial Day the Friends of Savona Free Library held a successful Chicken Barbecue dinner to raise funds for the library.  We were able to sell out of dinners within an hour of serving the dinners. There was a 50/50 raffle won by Jeff James who donated part of the winnings back to the Library. Thank you to all the Friends who came and helped out. Without Friends like you the Savona Free Library would not be able to as many programs and events as we do.

On Memorial Day the Teen Advisory Committee had a float in the parades for both Campbell and Savona. This year the Teens were supporting the upcoming Summer Learning Program with the theme “Libraries Rock”. The Summer Learning Program will start on Friday June 29, 2018, with a sign up party, starting at 5:30 pm, featuring a hot dog picnic on the lawn of the Mary Helen Joint Meeting House (inside if bad weather) and ending with Tanglewood Nature Center bringing their animal friends for a visit. The program will continue for six weeks. The Summer Learning Program will have a reading challenge for all ages (including teens and adults) with prizes awarded for the amount of time read. There will be planned events and drop in events through out the six weeks.

Calling All Teens!

The Savona Free Library has this amazing group called the Teen Advisory Committee. We meet one Tuesday out of the month to discuss future events and community support through public service. We are looking for leaders of tomorrow, or anyone who wants to make a difference. Anyone regardless of circumstance has a say.

Thank You for all Who Voted on the CSCSD and Savona Free Library Budget Votes.

The Savona Free Library Budget Vote failed on Tuesday night, May 15, 2018. The vote was: 103 yes to 109 no. The difference was only six votes. If you thought your vote does not matter, think again. Each vote for or against does matter. Please remember being able to vote in any election, local, state, or federal is a privilege and does matter.

What will the Savona Free Library do now? We may have to reduce some of our popular programs. Everything will depend on if we can raise enough to cover the budget through fundraisers and donations. If you would like to help the library you can make donations of funds, books and more at the library or by mail: Savona Free Library, P.O. Box 475. Savona, NY 14879. Please call the library first to make sure we will be open when you come. Thank you again for your support.

Welcome to the Savona Free Library!

Welcome to the Savona Free Library website. If you are coming to our website you are looking for information on the library. You can find our hours, events, what is new to our collection, access your account, order items to pick up at the library and many other things about the library. But when you think about a library what is the first thing that comes to mind? If you are like many other Americans it would be physical books. While we do have a collection of books there is so much more to libraries these days than just physical books. We have computers and public WI-FI hot spots available for public use. We also lend out audio books on CD, music CDs, movies and television shows on DVD. Coming soon, there will be Kindle Fire tablets to borrow. All of these items are available at the library, but right now you are in cyber space. Guess what, you can still borrow from the library. Just put your pointer on “E-Library” and click to find out. Remember the library is much more than just a place to find books. We offer many other items for borrowing and many different services to the public, through your Savona Free Library card or any library card in the Southern Tier Library System. Also you can access the library not only during the days the library is open, but even when the library is physically closed. Need a book to help you to fall asleep at 2:00 am? Down load a digital book and start reading. Need to get authoritative information for a research project due real soon, check out our databases for articles from many different sources. Look around, try something new, the Savona Free Library is available for your entertainment and informational needs.
