The Cazenovia Public Library is a member of the MidYork Library System. There are 43 libraries belonging to this consortium, encompassing Oneida, Herkimer and Madison Counties. A patron belonging to a library in one of these counties is entitled to the use of any Midyork Library. Inclusion in this consortium enables the Cazenovia Public Library to borrow (and send) books, DVDs, music, etc. from any other member library. Items borrowed within the system may be returned at any MidYork library, regardless of the loaning library or the library from which it was checked out (this excludes Interlibrary Loans -ILLs- borrowed from outside the MidYork system; these items must be returned to the loaning library).

Borrowing Material

The Cazenovia Public Library provides books, audiobooks, DVDs, music CDs, and magazines to MidYork Library patrons with cards in good standing.

Loan Periods:

Books..................................... 3 weeks

Music CDs............................... 3 weeks

Audiobooks............................. 3 weeks

DVDs (TV series/5+Hr) ............. 3 weeks

Items are eligible for two additional renewals if no other holds exist for the material. An extended due date may be requested prior to checkout. You may renew items online at midyork.org (you will need your 13 digit Patron ID and your PIN # - usually the last four digits of your phone number) or by calling the Library at 315.655.9322.

Overdue items collect fines per day late: Books .10/day, DVD .50/day. By signing up for a Library card, patrons agree to pay fines on outstanding items. Charges may be payed via credit card through the patron's midyork.org account.

Digital Material:

MidYork Library patrons may download eBooks, audiobooks, and magazines at no cost. eBooks and audiobooks can be found in our Overdrive catalog (here). Browse and download eligible magazines from the MidYork Zinio catalog (here). Digital material may be signed out for two weeks with no option of renewal. Your material will become unavailable after the borrowing time has expired; no overdue fees are ever charged. Tablet users must download the Overdrive Media Console App or the Kindle App from their respective digital store; both apps are free. For additional assistance, consult MidYork's help page or a Library staff member.

InterLibrary Loans (ILLs): 

Items that are not available within the MidYork system may be borrowed from outside libraries (located throughout the United States and some internationally) through InterLibrary Loans. The due dates for such items are more rigidly defined, and the requested material may not be eligible for renewal.

Meeting Rooms

The Cazenovia Public Library offers the use of two meeting rooms to nonprofit organizations; room use is prohibited for private family functions, business and promotional groups.

The Felice-Tierney "Board" Room is located on the second floor of the original building and is not handicap-accessible. This room is used primarily for small meetings of 15 people or less and is equipped with a television and DVD player.

The Community Room, located on the lower level, is handicap-accessible and equipped with a projector and screen, DVD player, video player, and sound system. A kitchen is also available. Capacity is limited to 80 people. Please review the Community Room Policy page prior to scheduling a meeting.

Reserve a room by calling or stopping by the Library and talking with a staff member. Please have a few possible meeting dates in mind so that we will be able to accommodate you. These rooms are in high demand.

Technology Classes

The Library does not currently offer regularly scheduled technology classes. Check with the Library staff or reference the Calendar of Events for class offerings. Library staff members may be able to assist with specific questions at the circulation desk.
