The Friends Are Offering A Hospitality Room
The annual Syracuse Winter Carnival is set to offer a full day of activities on Saturday, Jan. 27. Runners from the 5K might want to be the first to grab a cup of soup and cornbread at the library. The Friends will be offering several varieties and warming tables in the meeting room, so that people can come in after petting the sled dogs and watching the ice sculptors. The Lakeland Youth Center people are having face painting and hot chocolate that begins at noon. The Syracuse Library welcomes visitors from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
