Today was the City of Tonawanda Public Library's summer picnic, hosted with support from The Kiwanis club of the Tonawandas. If you can't be inside a library, the next best place is right outside one, with your neighbors and a hot dog.
Thank you New York State Senator Sean M. Ryan for presenting state funds to several of our libraries earlier today. We appreciate all you do for libraries here at home and all across New York.
