Winton Branch Library Parking Lot Gate Response

Winton Branch Library Parking Lot Gate Response

The Winton Branch of the Rochester Public Library has recently installed a gate barring people from using their parking lot when the building is closed. The North Winton Village Association is against that decision due to its negative effect on the many neighbors and visitors frequenting the businesses on Winton Rd.

We’ve met with representatives from the library and have sent the following letter to the City of Rochester Law Department, and to the attention of Mayor Warren, City Council, and representatives from Neighborhood and Business Development, and Rochester Public Library.

Barnes & Noble Book Fair to Support City Branches

Barnes & Noble Book Fair to Support City Branches

Rochester, NY , 2011 – Rochester Public Library’s Monroe, Highland and Winton Branches will be holding a Bookfair at the Barnes & Noble store in Pittsford (3349 Monroe Ave.) on Friday, December 2, 2011 from 9 am to 10 pm.

Thinking of buying books, DVDs, music or children’s games or even a Nook for the holidays? Why not do it and contribute to a worthy cause?  If you make your purchases at Barnes & Noble on December 2nd and mention you’re there to support Monroe, Highland or Winton Branch at the checkout, a percentage of your purchase will be donated to the libraries!  This percentage will be used to purchase new materials for each of the branches. There will be a full day of programming at the store to make your shopping trip even more fun— multiple story times for the little ones, a real Knight in Shining Armor, holiday paper crafts, music by Elizabethan and ancient music duo, Bard’s Baroque, and more!

In addition, Sal Maiorana, sports writer for the Democrat & Chronicle, will be signing copies of his recent book Buffalo Bills: The Complete Illustrated History from 6-9:00 pm to support the library book fair.

If you can’t make it to the store on the 2nd, you can still support Monroe, Highland and Winton Branches by purchasing online with Barnes & Noble December 2nd-7th. Just enter Bookfair ID 10576619 at checkout.  The more sales that are made in the libraries’ name, the bigger percentage we will receive back from Barnes & Noble, so please consider purchasing something on our behalf. Every little bit helps!

The full in-store program schedule on December 2nd is: 

10 am – 1 pm, multiple Storytimes for all ages

1-3 pm, Holiday Paper Crafts

4 pm, see a real Knight in Shining Armor!
