The Lansing Community Library celebrated 10 years of service on St Patrick's Day, March 17, 2018.

"It is amazing how much the library has grown in the past few years and how much it offers its patrons. We are so lucky to have this treasure in our community," said Liz Miller, Trustee President.

This winter, LCL welcomed Katie Senft as the Children's Librarian. She will run the toddler story times during the week, coordinate the Summer Reading Program and lead many new initiatives including an Afterschool Adventure Program. A sensory story hour for children with special needs was offered throughout the summer and will resume soon. Also for children, Lego building was offered on Saturdays in March, and a computer coding program specifically for girls in 5th – 7th grade will be offered Saturday, April 14 at 11:00 am.

Patrons can reduce or eliminate overdue book fines (up to $5) by bringing in food donations during the week of April 8-14, National Library week.

The Library's annual meeting will take place on Monday, April 23 at 7:00 pm. Guest speaker Brigid Hubberman will discuss her new initiative, Children's Reading Connection. The Library Director will give a brief State-of-the-Library Report, and the Children's Librarian will talk about Summer Reading and the Afterschool Adventure Program. Also meet the three library trustee candidates and learn the winner of the 5th annual logo contest, 'Libraries Rock'.

The annual budget vote will be on Tuesday, April 24 10:00 am – 8:00 pm.

The library will welcome author Mary Maki as part of the Ben Muggeo Writers Series, April 25 at 7:00 pm, and celebrate 'Poem in Your Pocket' Day on Saturday, April 28.

The library continues to offer access to Cayuga Nature Center and the Paleontology Research Institute (Museum of the Earth).

Adults can participate in Mah Jongg or T'ai Chi weekly and attend the library book club monthly. Coming soon, a 'Seed to Supper' program in partnership with Cornell Cooperative Extension for beginner gardeners on a budget. In the same spirit, the library plans to be a fresh produce drop-off site for the Lansing Food pantry this summer.

Other programming additions include a 'tween book club and a graphic novel writing workshop coming this fall. There are no shortages of ways to utilize the Lansing Community Library.

"Thank you, Lansing Community for supporting your library," Library Director Susie Gutenberger. "All are welcome and encouraged to attend the annual meeting, April 23 at 7:00 pm and vote on Tuesday, April 24 from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm."
