Upcoming Events
All events are free to the public, unless otherwise stated.

Art Exhibit

The featured artist for the month of May is Kevin Klumpp. Mr. Klumpp has dealt with many challenges in his life, including being unable to speak and learning to communicate through sign language. He is very passionate about drawing and photography. Many of Kevin’s drawings take several days to complete and the inspiration for his work is not always known. Please stop in to the Smart Community Room and view his work any time our library is open.

Seed Swap

Through the end of May, the Sidney Library will be participating in a Seed Swap program. Check out our old fashioned card catalog, which will serve as a storage for seeds. If you’d like some free vegetable, herb, or flower seeds, stop by and pick some up. If you have leftover seeds from 2014 or 2015, you are welcome to drop them off for others to take.

Energy Efficiency Presentation

On Tuesday 4/28 at 6:30pm, join Martin and Mary Ann Cuff from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Broome County. Mr. and Mrs. Cuff will share their knowledge of wildflowers, including how to set up an identification kit. This event is free to the public.
