Welcome to the Jordanville Public Library. We are located in the heart of Jordanville at 189 Main Street. We have open hours five days a week. We are chartered to serve the Owen D. Young School District and belong to the Mid-York Library System.
We thank Stewart’s Shops for their generous donation to the Summer Reading Program at our library. This is the third year they have contributed $200 toward the cost of programs and books for the children in our area. We hope your will show your appreciation and thank them when you stop in their store in Richfield Springs.
The Friends of the Library have worked hard all year to raise money for these programs. We would not be able to have this quality schedule without their help. We also want to thank our patrons who have purchased raffle tickets for the baskets, attended the Literary Teas and bought used books from us. All that money goes into keeping the library a growing place for information and entertainment. All contributions are greatly appreciated.
HERE ARE THE PROGRAMS WE HAVE SCHEDULED FOR THE SUMMER:
June 6, Thursday, @ 6 p.m. – LEARN TO USE YOUR E-BOOK READER. A FREE PROGRAM WITH KATIE McKAULEY FROM MID-YORK.

As part of the Mid-York System, we are able to loan and borrow materials to and from the other 43 libraries in our system. We have delivery service to the library two days a week. We are very pleased to be able to offer high speed internet access for our customers. Verizon recently installed a server and fiber optic line which has boosted our reliability and speed. With your library card number, you can use the desk top computers in the library or log on with your laptop from the parking lot!
The Library has an excellent collection of books for adults, young adults and children. We regularly add to our collection of 400+ DVDs and are expecting 70 new books for the Children’s and Young Adult collections before June via a grant from the LIBRI Foundation that provides books to small rural libraries. Also on the shelves, you will find Large Print books, magazines, and CDs.
We hope you will stop in for a visit and decide to make the library a regular part of your schedule. We recently received a SmartBoard for programs and today were notified that a Kindle Fire E-Book reader will be added to our holdings…the result of a drawing held at Mid-York! This includes a 2-hour training session for anyone who would like to learn how to use their own device or see what is being offered. The training time will be announced soon. (See the schedule above.) You can also call the library for information.
We now have a Public Performance license that allows us to show movies in the library. That schedule is still in the works.
The Board of Trustees owns and operates the Jordanvillle Public Library. They meet once a month, usually on the third Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. Meetings are open to all who would like to attend.
