We will be closed on Monday, January 20, 2014 in honor of Martin Luther King Day.  Our regularly scheduled board meeting has been cancelled, future date to be determined.




Please help with the 2nd floor renovation of Bodman Memorial Library!  In 2014 we are applying for another New York State Construction Grant to renovate the 2nd floor of the library.  Renovations include new electrical wiring, installing electric baseboard heat, insulation for external walls, new sheetrock and flooring throughout.  Upon completion there will be an adult reading room, community center, and a private room for meetings/tutoring.  The burden of a 25-50% match falls upon the library and we need your support.  There is no amount to small!   We are accepting donations online through paypal for your convenience.  Please include your name and phone number with your donation for a chance to win a home made quilt by Lynn Waite.  Drawing for the quilt will be on February 1st.

"A library outranks any other one thing a community can do to benefit its people.  It is a never failing spring in the desert."   - Andrew Carnegie

Higher Education visits Bodman Memorial Library

As our Summer Reading Program winds down to a close we went out in style with "Higher Education" here for a spectacular display!


Summer Reading Program Finale August 23 12-2 PM

The summer is winding down and our Summer Reading Program is coming to a close.  Friday August 23rd join us at the library for some fun family entertainment.  There will be food, games and fun for the whole family.  Be prepared to get wet if the weather is nice.   

Good News for patrons!

Do you often ask yourself "Have I read this before?"  or maybe even asked library staff "Can you see if I've checked this out before?" 

Great news!  Patrons now have the option to see a list of items they have checked out in the past.  When you log in to Enterprise (the online catalog) you can then opt to have the system keep track of the books that you check out.  This request has been a long time coming for those avid readers who cannot always remember if they've read every title to a series or get hooked on particular authors that have published over 10, 20, or 30 titles and you loose track of which ones you have read. All you have to do is log in with your library card number and PIN- last 4 digits of your phone number, click on my account

Under the Personal Information tab click on preferences and place a check in the box next to Keep my checkout history and click update.

Updates to our Computer and Wireless Policy

Currently we are in the processing of updating and reviewing our Computer Use and Wireless Policy.  One major change is  children under the age of 12 are not allowed to use the computer without the supervision of an adult (over the age of 18) who is validated to use the computer.  This goes in hand with our patron behavior policy which states:

¨      Children under 12 years of age are not to be left unattended in the building or on Library property. Parents or legal guardians are responsible for behavior of minor children. (Under 12)


As of August 9, 2012 wireless users will now be directed to a Network User Authentication page and prompted to enter a username and password to access the internet while using the Library's wireless network ( phipublic).  The process is very simple and allows us to track wireless usage. 

USERNAME:  library

PASSWORD:  wireless

phipublic still is and always was an unsecured network, and as always patrons should use caution when entering private and sensitive information.
