Cairo Public Library wins NYLA Award

The Cairo Public Library has been selected to receive the 2013 New York State Library Association—PLS Building Award for a library serving a population of under 20,000. According to the notification the “Public Libraries Section Board is impressed with your well planned and strategic building project that addresses the needs of your community and the future goals of your Library”. The library will receive a $1,000 award and a display plaque. The library gets numerous compliments on the library and gives many thanks to its architects Paul Mays and Meghan Brennan.
This is the library’s second NYLA Award in recent years. In 2011, Library Director Debra M. Kamecke received the L. Marion Moshier/Asa Wynkoop Award for Distinguished Librarianship.

How much does the Library Benefit You?


“There is not such a cradle of democracy on earth as the Free Public Library, this republic of letters, where neither rank, office, nor wealth receives the slightest consideration.”

Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919)

Did you know you can use your library card to borrow books for your Kindle, Nook and other e-book readers?

If you are considering an e-reader, but would like to try one out in the library before buying it, we have a Nook available. Just ask at the front desk.
