Seeds @ the Library!


If you are looking for some organic seeds, why not check out what the SEED Library has? It's conveniently located right on the circulation desk. There are packets of all kinds of seeds, from tomatoes to peppers, melons, arugula, and more.

This is a great opportunity to take home a few seeds of a new variety without having to buy an entire packet. I wanted to try some melons, so Linda showed me how to fold a handy dandy seed envelope (out of origami paper). That way I could bring home half a dozen seeds that I knew I would plant.

Patron Appreciation Day – April 12


On Thursday, April 12, Candor Free Library is hosting a Patron Appreciation Day.
Stop by for cookies and refreshments!
Get fines waived for overdue items belonging to any Tioga County library that are returned on that day. And check out the new books added to the collection.

This revelry is part of National Library Week, an annual celebration of the life-changing work of libraries, librarians and library workers. Libraries are more than places to borrow books or study—they’re also creative and engaging community centers where people can collaborate using new technologies and develop their skills and passions. Our library provides e-books, language learning tools, databases, and more.

 On Thursday, the library will be open from 10 am-12 noon, 2-5 pm, and 6-8 pm.
