National Library Week: Visit your local library to get involved in vast services, programs

Yates County Public Libraries encouraged the community to visit their libraries in-person or explore their website during National Library Week.

The theme for this year’s National Library Week, which runs from April 3 – 9, is “Connect with Your Library,” a nod to the technology available for use at local libraries. The theme also captures the idea of libraries being a place for community members to gather and connect with one another.


Yates County Public Libraries offer highspeed Wi-Fi as well as Wi-Fi hotspots available on loan, according to The Chronicle Express.

You can access these services and many more at one of the five libraries in the Yates County system: Branchport Modeste Bedient Memorial Library, Dundee Library, Middlesex Reading Center, Penn Yan Public Library, and Rushville Mabel D. Blodgett Reading Center.

To find the closest Yates County Public Library near you, head to the Southern Tier Library System website.
