Check out what NOPL has to offer for adults! Music, lectures, continuing education, book groups, and more!
The Discovery Den is NOPL at North Syracuse’s new space for self-guided “mini make” projects – hands on activities that anyone can participate in – designed to educate, inspire, and engage. Each month there will be a different themed activity, and all the materials needed to complete the projects will be available inside the Discovery Den.
The first Discovery Den activity involves writing Haikus or other short poems on sticky notes that will then be placed on the beautiful tree mural on the wall, serving as a living art piece when completed. Other upcoming monthly activities include: Hero Masks (June), Fizzing Fireworks Art (July), Make Your Own Comic Book (Aug), Halloween Safety Lights (Oct), and more!
In addition to the monthly themed activities, the room is also equipped with iPads, a Fellowes Comb Binding Machine, a Silhouette Cameo Cutting Machine, and a Wolverine Slide/Negative Scanner. We invite everyone to come get hands-on at the Discovery Den at NOPL at North Syracuse!
Volunteers are planning to scan Northern Onondaga Public Library’s collection of yearbooks for schools in the North Syracuse School District and make them available digitally online. But your help is needed! There are some years for which the library does not have yearbooks, and we are hoping you can help fill the gaps so that a complete collection can be scanned.
You’ll find a list below of yearbooks that are needed. If you have one that is on the list, please contact Geoff, the Reference Librarian at NOPL at North Syracuse by calling (315)458-6184, and he can provide you with more details. The scanning process does not damage the yearbooks, and items will be returned to their owners after the scanning is complete.
