Mask Update:

Seymour Library Mask Update

Following recommendations from the CDC and the Cayuga County Health Department, Seymour Library requests all visitors to wear a mask while visiting the library. We thank you for your cooperation.

Please continue to return your items to the library’s Book Drop. 

Curbside Pickup: For those who are not ready to come into the library or for those who are looking for a fast pick up option, you can request Curbside Pickup. When you receive a notification that your hold request (book or other library item) is in, call the library and request curbside. A library staff member will bring your items right to your car! (Tips for Curbside)

Children’s Room Renovations: Construction is underway at Seymour Library as renovations are being made to update our Children’s Room into our new family space.

We will continue to showcase the renovation on our website, social media and in our e-newsletters. Want to stay updated on the progress? Follow us on Facebook or subscribe to our newsletter with a personal request to add you to our email list.

In the meanwhile, popular collections from the Children’s Room can be found in the library’s new book room. Other collections around the library have been shifted to accommodate the change.

You will notice that sections of the library are currently unavailable to the public or that lights are off in certain areas. Library staff are more than happy to assist with retrieving a book. 

The library’s History Discovery Center is closed at this time, but research questions can be emailed to

Construction vehicles/equipment will be parked in the library’s parking lot for the duration of the project, but there is still parking available to visitors.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this remodel. We cannot wait to share the new family space with you! We will continue to post renovation updates on our Facebook page. You can find out more information about the Children’s Room Renovation here:
