Creation Station Opens April 11th

Creation Station

Welcome to the Creation Station!  Starting National Library Week (April 11—16), the Broome County Public Library will open a new space to the public.  The Creation Station will be BCPL’s take on a makerspace, which is simply any combination of technology and craft resources dedicated to making.  The Creation Station will include 6 computers with Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom software, a color printer, a sewing machine and iron/ironing board, and a Cricut machine for craft projects.  We hope that this space will provide a place to create and hours of fun.

NYS Library Aid FY 2016-2017 - Needs Your Support!

We need YOU TO TAKE ACTION NOW and let your elected officials know that State Library Aid must be treated fairly in this year’s final budget.  Although Governor Cuomo has proposed an additional $992M in education funding in this year’s budget, a 4.3% increase over last year, he once again proposed flat funding for State Library Aid.  Our libraries are critical to the state’s educational infrastructure.
