The Central NY Library Resources Council supports libraries in Herkimer, Madison, Oneida & Onondaga counties and advocates for libraries everywhere!

First Monday takes us to visit member libraries who are innovating in their buildings, with their staff and patron programs.

In our ongoing efforts to Connect the Information Community of Central New York, CLRC is interested in reaching out to all types of libraries throughout our four-county region. On the first Monday of every month, CLRC members and friends will have a chance to see how everyone can be an innovator!

Does your library have a fun program or a quirky collection? Have you recently completed a remodeling project or interesting collaboration with your community? CLRC regional library staff would like to know more! Contact CLRC and show your stuff on a First Monday!

We encourage iSchool students to take part and see what’s out there. It’s a great opportunity to network with the CNY library community.

The Onondaga County Public Library and FamilySearch has begun a partnership to digitally preserve over 40,000 historic titles from OCPL’s collections. The digitized records will include published family histories, local and county histories, directories, locality records, school yearbooks, Bible records, personal journals published before 1920, and published cemetery records.

First Mondays will begin the new “season” with a visit to OCPL’s Local History and Genealogy Department. Librarian Holly Sammons and staff will show us the ins and outs of the new project.
