  1. I’d like to register for the Geneology class April 27th @ 10.

    • Hi June, you are registered for Ancestry.com Library Edition. Please email us at on.sarah@4cls.org with your phone number so that we have that in case we need to contact you. Thanks.

  2. I am looking for an organized and meaningful book club for adults. I don’t see any at the library. Is there any interest?

    • Hi Deb, we have special book discussions throughout the year (1 in Spring, Summer and Fall) but not a book club that regularly meets. There is a friends book club but they run the program and you can contact them at friends.of.HMLOneonta@gmail.com. We do have a special Humanities NY Book Discussion Series coming up on Wednesdays this Fall on the Vote for Women. We will have an introductory meeting on Wednesday, August 30th but will also have registration for that program. We will be advertising for that soon. Hope this helps.

  3. Will there be any photography classes coming up?

    • Hi, we are working on a spring photography class. Check back here, on Eventbrite, or Facebook for the program.
