Coburn Free Library invites public to celebrate its elevator accessible building

OWEGO – Coburn Free Library would like to cordially invite you to celebrate our newly accessible building.

A public library is the cornerstone of a community. It has the capacity to pull together all parts of its community – for education, information, enrichment, and the simple joy of borrowing a favorite book. A public library cannot do all these things if some of its members cannot access the building. Historically, older patrons, those with mobility issues, parents with strollers, –these and others had difficulty using the beautiful Owego library.

Therefore, the Board of Trustees and the Executive Director of the Coburn Free Library are very happy to celebrate the opening of the Library’s Accessible Elevator Annex! Thanks to the Downtown Revitalization Initiative, the New York State Library Construction Grant, local foundation grants, and many individual donations, the Coburn Free Library is now accessible to all. Please join us to celebrate! There will be an official ribbon-cutting at 3:00pm on September 16, followed by an Open House from 3:00pm-6:00pm.

The Library is located at 275 Main St., Owego, and the phone number is (607) 687-3520.
