Ellington Farman Library was recently able to complete installation of a Stand-by Generator thanks to funding that was made possible by the Karl Peterson Unrestricted Fund at the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation and a private donation. The generator will allow the library to be fully operational during times of power outage thereby allowing the community to charge cellphones, batteries, medical devices and use the library during regular open hours. It will also prevent flooding issues in the basement by providing emergency power to the sump pump. Moon-Light Electric of Jamestown was contracted to install the generator. This project was a demonstrated need for both the safety of the building and the broader community. The grant was a great help as the library continues to find proactive ways to serve our community.
We cannot believe that summer is half over- but there are still a lot of programs and events to look forward to at the library in August. Read the newsletter below, follow us on Facebook to get the latest happenings. Please remember some of our programs need registration. We have tried to clearly mark them on the posters and in all advertising.

Coming off a pandemic year full of uncertainty in 2021, 2022 proved to be full of activity! We provided an abundance of programs for all ages that were well attended by not only our own patrons but folks from every corner of 2 counties. We continued to provide to the community, programs such as Concerts, the annual Easter Egg Hunt, Santa Pancake Breakfast and our Potluck Breakfast was back for a few months of the year. Our Community Room was used 37 times by groups such as the Cub Scouts, Bible Study, school tutoring, Town Picnic meetings and more. The full report can be found here: Annual Community Report 2022
