Sidney Memorial Public Library

8 River Street Sidney, NY 13838


No Holds Through 6/26/15

Due to a system upgrade, no holds can be placed from Tuesday, June 23 – Friday, June 26, 2015.

This means we are not able to reserve items for you if you come in to the library. Also, if you normally place holds online through the 4CLS website, they will not save to your account during this time.

The system should be back to normal on Saturday, June 27th.

Sorry for the inconvenience!


Get Free eBook or Audiobook Now Through 6/23

The Sidney Library and Four County Library System are participating in an event called Big Library Read. Think of it as a worldwide book club.

Now through 6/23/15, you are invited to participate by borrowing a digital copy of the suspense novel Eyes On You by Kate White. Both ebook and audiobook versions are available, and you will receive the copy immediately – there is no waiting list. Thank you to the Overdrive company and the publishers of this book for making so many copies available to our patrons!


Download eBooks and Audiobooks Through the Library

In addition to the large selection of books in our library, patrons can also borrow ebooks or audiobooks through the 4CLS Download Zone. You can search by category (historical fiction, fantasy, etc), see what’s new, or search for a particular author. Any ebook or audiobook that is unavailable can be put on hold, and you will receive an email when it is ready for you.


Many people listen to downloaded audiobooks on their smartphones, through the Overdrive app. Check it out on your own, or stop by the library to learn more.
