Library lovers line up for library love

Library lovers line up for library love

Kick the winter blahs with “Library Lovers’ Month” in New York State — a February event that our local libraries will celebrate in fun fashion.

Friends of the Village Library in Cooperstown plan a month filled with activities for all ages — events the group hopes will help fill the void left by a year without Cooperstown’s Winter Carnival. The group is sponsoring a month-long writing contest for all ages, looking for “a short story about being trapped in the library or write a love letter to the library.” They’ll award prizes for silliest, scariest, and best overall in three different categories — kids (5-12), young adult (13-18), and adult (19+) — with winners receiving a gift certificate for the upcoming Friends of the Library Book Sale, scheduled for March 4 – 6.

Here are some of the happenings on tap in Cooperstown:

Huntington hosts anniversary party

By Kevin Limiti • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

ONEONTA — The Huntington Memorial Library in Oneonta celebrated its centennial anniversary Saturday, Aug. 7, with an outdoor celebration at Huntington Memorial Park.

Cupcakes on top of books, free drinks provided by Stewart’s and plants were given out at the celebration.

The library turned 100 last year. However, because of COVID, the celebration got delayed. Mayoral candidates Mark Drnek and Len Carson were also on hand, with Drnek providing the PA system for the event.

Drnek, whose ward covers the Huntington Library, said that the library was a “quality of life thing.” which is a key part of his platform and one that he hopes will attract people to the city. He said he is hoping to use “targeted marketing” to attract people from metro areas.

“There’s nothing more quality of life than what the library does,” Drnek said, who mentioned the library hosting a car show on the same day. “It doesn’t seem like a library kind of thing to do. It’s an outreach kind of thing to do.”
