We are so pleased to announce that the accessibility annex construction began today! When construction is complete, we will have an at-grade entrance, ADA approved restroom, and an elevator providing access to all levels of our historic library. For the first time since the initial build in 1910, the Coburn Free Library will be accessible by all.

If you wonder where we are on funding, our fundraising continues. We will borrow funds against our endowment to cover costs until donations and grants come in. With DRI funds, we are approximately 90% of the way to our goal. If you would like to support us, please make donations at the circulation desk or mail checks to Coburn Free Library Elevator Fund 275 Main Street Owego NY 13827.
