Digital Librarian: a librarian's choice of the best of the Web
Digital Librarian is maintained by Margaret Vail Anderson, a librarian in Cortland, New York

Central New York

With an emphasis on Cortland and the surrounding area.

Oxford is a lovely town located on the Chenango River in Chenango County, New York. Lafayette Park, a traditional village green, is surrounded by a small commercial center with a fifties style soda fountain (Hoppie's) serving excellent ice cream sodas and a family-owned drug store (Bartle's) with an interesting selection of glassware. The green hosts a Farmers' Market on Saturday mornings from 9 am to noon. Visit David Mabey's Antiques, 66 North Canal Street, Route 12, Oxford (607-843-9007). The building is literally crammed with objects. Looking for a replacement cherry table leg? Chances are you'll find it here - or rather the owner David O. Mabey will find it for you in some obscure corner. Take a walking tour to see the handsome early 19th century architecture (including the Oxford Memorial Library built in 1794 by bridge designer, Theodore Burr) or hike the Finger Lakes Trail.
