NEWS & EVENTS
Monthly News - September-October.
We have added two new tablets to our children's computer. They're loaded with educational apps and fun games. We hope you come in to enjoy them!
Looking to enjoy New York State Parks, but don't want to pay a lot of extra cash? We've added three Empire Passes. Because of how valuable these are, we have a strict policy in place for their proper use. Feel free to come in ask about them!
We also added two Onondaga County park passes.
These passes can be checked out for a three day loan period.
Our Step to Stop falling program will be starting up again on September 11th @ 10 a.m. in the library community room. This is for 12 weeks.
Imagination Lab! Every Wednesday from 3:30-4:30, Imagination Lab provides fun and engaging activities for kids K-6. Come on in and join the fun!
October 16th: Candy corn flowers.
23rd: Autumn tree art.
30th: Halloween party! Dress up, and enjoy some snacks!
We have two Nooks available for check out at our library.
The Nooks already have 150+ titles on them, and more can be downloaded at the library, per request.
We are looking to add more adult programming to the library, and have a survey available at the front desk. Please fill out this survey to let us know what you're interested in and what your available times are.
Want to share lovely, age appropriate stories with your child? Come to Story Hour, held every Wednesday at 10:30! Not only are there fun stories, we also sing songs, make crafts, and even occasionally dance!
Our monthly Tuesday Tea continues! On the third Tuesday of the month, join us from 2-4 PM. Bring that unfinished knitting project that's been nagging you, or maybe a coloring book to help you relax, or just come and enjoy conversation and some light refreshment. So remember, clear your schedule for November 19th, and come enjoy the fall season with a cup of tea and friendly company!
Calling all artists!!! The library is always looking to showcase local artistic talent. If you have an artistic display that you would like to show in our display case, contact us via our contact page, or call the library at (315) 677-3782.
DO YOU USE AMAZON? If you do, think about supporting us, too! The next time you go to shop on Amazon, instead of logging on to go to “Smile.Amazon.com”. You then logon to your account as you normally would. The first time you use that site, you will be asked to choose a charity. They have some national ones featured, or you can choose your own. Type in “LaFayette Public Library” (make sure you choose the one in LaFayette, NY). From then on, anytime you log on to Smile.Amazon.com to shop on Amazon, .5% of your purchases go to the library. So for every $1,000 spent, we get $5. And you will be spending the same amount of money as you did before! So remember, Smile.Amazon.com. Thanks!
Field Goods is an organization that delivers fresh food from small farms and works with many of the libraries in Onondaga County. This is a "local supports local" effort.
The LaFayette Public Library serves as a drop off/pick up place to deliver the food.
It is custom ordering so you can pick what you want delivered. The food is delivered on a weekly basis on Wednesday.
There is an option to add $1.00 to your order that will go to the library so it serves as a fundraiser, besides also helping support the local economy.

Look for programs soon!
