Penn Yan Public Library

April 3-9, 2022 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the essential role libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities. The theme for this year’s National Library Week is “Connect with Your Library,” which promotes the idea that libraries are places to get connected to technology by using broadband, computers and other resources. Libraries also offer opportunities to connect with media, programs, ideas and classes, in addition to books. Most importantly, libraries connect communities to each other.

Dundee Library

Libraries across the country are making a difference in people’s lives by providing electronic learning resources and wi-fi access for students and workers who may lack internet access at home. Yates County Public Libraries provide both onsite highspeed Wi-FI and borrowable WI-FI hotspots.
