The Geneseo Public Library is celebrating its fifth-year anniversary at the Chicago Street location.

Members of the public are invited to a special celebration on Friday, Oct. 28. The celebration will start at 2 p.m. with a performance by the Geneseo Senior Citizens Kitchen Band.

Cake and refreshments will be served at 3 p.m. The celebration also will include library fun facts and prize giveaways.

The Chicago Street location opened to the public on Oct. 29, 2011.

Since then, staff members have increased the library’s collection and expanded services available.

The library serves a district population of approximately 14,600. While 40 percent are card-carrying patrons, the library serves hundreds more with services like Internet access, printing, faxing, notary public and voter registration, said library director Claire Crawford.

Library use may be counted by the number of physical items checked out, the number of hits or downloads on a library database, or the number of people that sign up to use computers, study rooms or attend programs.

“Since moving to the new location, circulation has doubled and programming has tripled,” said Crawford. “We are fortunate that community members continue to be generous through memorials and donations.”
