Friends of the Northern Onondaga Public Library

What is a Friend of the Library?

The Friends are a non-profit, charitable group formed to support the library. The Friends of Library are often involved in fundraising, advocacy, volunteering, public awareness campaigns, and literacy programs. Some examples of this are raising funds through ice cream socials and book & bake sales, purchasing special items not included in the library budget, assisting at children’s programs, finding individuals and groups to display artwork within the library, maintaining the exterior appearance of the libraries, and creating public support for the library.

How do I become a Friend of the Library?

Currently two branches within the NOPL system maintain Friends groups. All residents are invited to join and support their local public library. Depending on your branch’s group there may be different types of memberships. Learn more by attending a Friend’s meeting or library event. Read below for more information or pick up a handout at your local branch.

Maker Club Defined.

What do you do at Maker Club?
We make things! At each session, we’ll focus on a different DIY.org skill area (cardboard, Perler beads, tape, mechanical engineering, and others!). Choose from suggested projects, or come up with your own. You can also get ideas for more things to make at home, work together on ideas, help brainstorm future Club projects, and show off your work.

Who is Maker Club for?
Children and teens ages 7 and up. With that in mind, children 10 and under will need help with the projects and must be accompanied by an adult. In Maker Club, we use real tools, some of which are sharp or hot – Maker Club projects are not appropriate for preschoolers.

Do I need to sign up for DIY.org to be a part of Maker Club?
Nope! DIY.org is just one way to share your work with others and ask questions. You don’t need to sign up if you don’t want to.

Do I need to come to every session, or stay for the whole session?
No, and no. You can come to as many or as few session as you want, and stay for a short time or for the whole two hours.

Bring your imagination and build a masterpiece at our monthly Lego Club.  Get inspired with a few stories and then construct a Lego creation.  We will display what you built in the library for all to see!  We have more than 60 pounds of Lego and megablok bricks.

We normally have two programs, for those ages 6 to 9, and for those ages 9 and up.
