Get excited: it’s the new Cortland Free Library website! It’s also more than that. It’s a hub for library happenings; a place to view local newspapers from the 1800s forward; a place to track down the book your favorite podcast just mentioned; a place to connect with your community; a place to research your family’s history; a place to hear stories (Dial-a-Story!); a place to play games; a place to get involved; truly, a place of discovery and wonder.

It wouldn’t be a good virtual branch if we didn’t also tell you about all that the physical space has to offer (for instance, say you need to fax something. Who faxes anymore? We do!) and more about those of us who keep things running behind-the-scenes: your library staff, volunteers, and board of trustees.

We hope you can find what you need here, but if you can’t: what’s missing? What else would you like to see? Let us know! And more generally, but I think also more importantly—what are your goals this year? What are your new year’s resolutions? Please let us know those too. When we know what our community is aiming for, it helps us develop our collections—physical and digital—to help you succeed.

Here’s to a year of growth, connectedness, and gratitude. Thank you for reading!
