The Military History Lecture Series is organized by the Society for the Preservation of Military History(SPMH). Lectures occur monthly during the academic year at the North Syracuse Library, and are open to all.

The SPMH’s mission statement

Recognizing and understanding the importance of preserving and studying military history, our society dedicates itself to the gathering and dissemination of world military history. This applies especially to the archiving and collecting of artifacts, documents, and related materials that pertain to the unique military heritage of the United States and its veterans who have maintained our freedoms and way of life. The society will serve to educate our community about military history, the role of the Armed Forces, and through learning, promote their positive and vital role in our society.

Registration not required, but signing up will trigger an email reminder to be sent to you the day before the event. Click the title of the series to register.

Get a Library Card this September

Library Card Sign-up Month

 

The Most Important School Supply of All

Book bags, notebooks, t-shirts, jeans,

There’s no end to the list of supplies, or so it seems.

And just when you think that you’re all done,

We suggest that you add another one.

This last supply is worth its weight in gold,

And with all the things you can do with it, it never gets old.

You can have an adventure, find a new love,

Study the classics, or anything you can dream of!

It’s a library card, if you haven’t already guessed,

And there are so many reasons we think it’s the best!

 

Northern Onondaga Public Libraries (NOPL) are proud to join the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide in celebrating National Library Card Sign-up Month throughout September.  We encourage everyone who doesn’t already have a card to visit the library and sign up for one!

A NOPL library card entitles you to preferred access to NOPL materials which include new books by popular authors, magazines, DVDs and CDs. Use your card to access digitized newspapers and genealogy resources at the library.  Increasingly, the library has a “digital branch” and your card lets you access free learning resources wherever you are.  Traveling to Spain?  Use Rocket Languages to prepare for your trip.  Studying for a test? Use LearningExpress Library to take practice exams for hundreds of tests including GED, SAT, CLEP, GRE, basic and advanced skills for students of all ages. And when homework is done, your library card will let you download eBooks, audiobooks, music, and videos.  Beginning this October, NOPL cardholders will have access to a wide selection of popular magazines to read online, download and keep. Watch for news about Zinio!

To sign up for a library card, adults need a valid photo ID that shows a current Onondaga County mailing address.  Children applying for a library card should be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Out of County residents may obtain a NOPL library card for a $35 annual fee.

If you have any questions or are ready to sign up, stop in to our Brewerton, Cicero or North Syracuse branches today!
