The LibraryFarm is an organic community garden on one-half acre of land owned by the Northern Onondaga Public Library in Cicero, NY.  Anyone can “check out” a plot! The purpose of the Library Farm is to provide a place for the community to grow, share and learn about food literacy, and organic, sustainable gardening.

At the Library Farm, half of the area is dedicated to the Community Garden; the other half is dedicated to the Library Farm Plotters – our individual gardeners. All gardeners agree to follow organic growing practices.

Come visit us! We are located at the NOPL @ Cicero Library.

Reading & Discussion Series:
Making Sense of the Civil War

February – June 2014
NOPL @ N. Syracuse

The Civil War was a time of great conflict and transformation for our country, as well as the individual people who lived during that time. Its legacy survives to this day in the form of historical accounts, speeches, personal letters, and even modern-day fiction novels.

In this new, five-part Reading and Discussion series, you will be introduced to a powerful selection of diaries, speeches, essays and works of historical fiction, and invited to join an open, guided discussion exploring how the war’s themes impact our lives and society today.

Please join us for a kickoff meeting on Wednesday, February 12th at 6 PM to learn about the program, discuss the reading list and receive reading materials! The five-part series will be held on the last Wednesday of each month (February through June) from 6-7:30 PM. Readings will be provided to participants free of charge through the library.

Sign-up is required as group size is limited. Simply sign up for the kickoff meeting and you will be registered for the series!
