“Name That Fish” contest at the Van Etten Library November 7, 2015

fishThe Van Etten Library has adopted a pet fish. He is a red Beta fish and has quite a personality. Right now he is celebrating Halloween, as seen in the picture. (He is so photogenic, and he loves getting his picture taken!!)

I could not believe how excited the younger patrons became when they learned that the library now had a fish. They would walk in the door and run right over to look at the fish sitting on the shelf at the circulation desk. So many questions about the fish; “Where did he come from?”, “What does he eat?”, “How old is he?” Once, I took the fish home on vacation with me. While I was away so many young ones asked where the fish had gone. My sub, Ms. Doris Jean, simply told them that he went on vacation with Ms. Michelle. On one occasion, a mom came rushing in to check if the fish was here, and she then said, “Oh good the fish is here!” She then shared with me that her two children were so excited about seeing the library fish that it was all they talked about the entire car ride to the library.

So we began a contest to name the library fish. We had some very creative entries; Red, Beto, Nemo, Kitty, Beanie, Sunflower, Brutus Buckeye, Bubbles, and the list went on with 25 potential winners. The difficult part was choosing the best name for the library fish. We really wanted to pick a name that would reflect some of the character of the Town of Van Etten and its residents. The most popular name on the list was ‘Finn’, with three entries. Since this was the most popular entry, I decided to go with it. But, not just because the fish literally has fins…the town of Van Etten actually has many residents of Finnish descent.

According to the Tioga History website, around 1909 the Finnish people began to move into the Van Etten area and purchased impoverished farms. They then created the Spencer Cooperative Society which sold everything from groceries and feed to farm equipment and hardware (Alve, tiogahistory.org/Site/Spencer.html).

The New York Folklore website explains how many of the Finnish that settled in the Finger Lakes region were leaving the mines and factories of the Midwest in search of farm land. Over the next few decades about five hundred Finnish landowners arrived in the Finger Lakes. As dairy farming began to decline in the area, the Finnish revitalized farming in the region by starting chicken farms (http://www.nyfolklore.org/tradarts/archcoll/flarch.html). With the poultry industry in the Spencer/Van Etten communities becoming such a very large business, the Spencer Cooperative Society also began buying and selling eggs (Alve, tiogahistory.org/Site/Spencer.html).

I recently spoke with a Van Etten library patron who recalls working for the co-op years ago. She stated that the co-op was a vital part to the community in supporting the supply and demands of that time. She also explained that during WWII due to the rationing of other meats and with chicken being very viable and plentiful, the Van Etten community thrived with its chicken farms.  In fact, if you were to take a drive down the main road through Van Etten today (NY 224) you can see the many abandoned chicken houses used decades ago by the Finnish chicken farmers.

So, if you ever find yourself in this neck of the woods, you will know exactly what those big abandoned white buildings with many windows are, and you will remember their great importance to the Van Etten community at one time. You can also stop in and say hello to our Van Etten Library fish…Finn.

1000booksFall Storytimes at CCLD libraries are just around the corner, beginning the week of September 14 at all branches; check our website for dates and times. We offer storytimes for babies, toddlers and preschoolers and all are drop in, no registration is required. Storytimes are a wonderful way to introduce your child to the joys of reading and increase their vocabulary, as well as help them to learn social skills. Our storytimes are full of fun too…interactive songs, flannel stories, rhymes and props that enhance the experience and make it pleasurable for caregivers as well as kids…and while you’re at the library, sign up for our latest early literacy program: 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten. (Currently available at Steele, Horseheads and Big Flats Libraries and funded by the Friends of the Horseheads Library.) This free, self-paced program challenges parents and caregivers to read at least 1,000 books before the child enters school. Research has shown that reading to children helps them be better prepared for school as it builds their vocabulary and stimulates language and cognitive skills. Reading together is great for bonding too, and stories read in storytime or at daycare can count as well. Ask us about this exciting new offering and we’ll see you soon at Storytime!

Happy Reading!

Krayon Kiosk at Big Flats Library August 26, 2015

Krayon KioskTechnology is forever changing, tablets get smaller and phones are getting bigger again, but the thing is technology is everywhere. Almost everyone has a smart phone, a tablet or a laptop that you can take with you to access the internet wherever you are and libraries are no different. In fact, we are offering technology to very young patrons who seem to grasp the idea very eagerly.

Last April, the Big Flats Library was lucky enough to be able to purchase a Krayon Kiosk that houses 4 iPads for elementary aged children. Each tablet is pre-loaded with 52 educational apps geared for children 2-9 years old. These apps teach math, science, art, etc., all with the goal of having our young patrons learn as they have fun. This kiosk has proved very popular and the children who come in, run to sit on one of the bright chairs and settle in for a morning or afternoon of fun. While the young ones are playing on the tablet, mom has a chance to choose the books they will be taking home with no interruptions.

We are finding that children know how to use these devices since most have them in their home and are used to navigating the screens to get to the game. No instruction at all is needed to get them started. Yes, technology is here to stay, and this is just one more way your public library is staying on track with the latest innovations.

We invite you to come to the Big Flats Library and see for yourself how much fun our kiosk is. Come early, it fills up fast with our young patrons.

New to the Genealogy & Local History collection: 1931 Church directory and the Soundex cards on microfilm August 17, 2015

Posted by youngm2015 in Genealogy / Local History.

New to our collections: A member directory from 1931 of the South Presbyterian Church in Elmira on the corner of Pennsylvania Ave and Southport Streets.  In 1931, they were already over 100 years old.  Today, the church is gone.  It burned down in 2004.  (Here’s the story: http://www.joycetice.com/church/2004fire.htm). Below please find a picture of the church in 1931 from the directory, and a Google earth shot of the same lot today.

Also new at the library, and of interest to genealogical researchers: We now have Soundex index cards available on microfilm.  This groups phonetically similar surnames together.  This is useful in case your family’s surname was misspelled in the census or the census index.  Sometimes, it is the only way to find a family in the census.  Feel free to come in and look at them yourselves!
