Did you know you can grow your own fish and salad in the same space?
Aquaponics is a combination of hydroponics (growing plants without soil) and aquaculture (fish-farming) to produce efficient, multi-benefit food production systems.

Come learn from Laurie Trotta, Assistant Professor of Aquaculture and Aquatic Sciences at SUNY Morrisville, home to a 4,000 gallon aquaponics system that produces 22,000 heads of lettuces and 1,700 pounds of tilapia every year.

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.
