Heartfelt thanks to everyone who sponsored the Trail Challenge or participated. We appreciate your help. This was a fun opportunity to partner with our friends at Victor Hiking Trails to encourage the use of the amazing trails in our area.
In order to meet increased usage and demand, the Victor Farmington Library is proposing the construction of a new library at 160 School Street in the Village of Victor.
The community will vote in May 2022 to approve building the new library. Prior to the vote, the library will hold public information sessions to present the design and gather input. “It is vitally important to us to solicit feedback from the residents of Farmington and Victor on what they want to see in a new library”, says Niver. A successful vote will allow the library to break ground in 2023 and open the doors to the public in 2024.
For more information on the new library project, please visit victorfarmingtonlibrary.org/new-library-project or call 585-924-2637.
We are thrilled to announce that the Victor Farmington Library budget vote passed and sincerely thank everyone who voted. The library will now be able to purchase more books and items to be borrowed, pay staff equitable wages due to the annual increase in the New York State minimum wage, and continue to explore a new library for the community.We truly appreciate your continued support, and look forward to providing the community with the exceptional service you have come to expect.
We would especially like to thank the Victor Central School District for holding our vote.

The recent successful installation of a Storywalk® at the Victor Municipal Park by the Victor Farmington Library, Farmington Victor Kiwanis Club, Victor Parks and Recreation, and Victor Hiking Trails has led to further collaboration and cooperation between Victor Farmington Library Community Services Librarian Greta Selin-Love and the Kiwanis Club: another Storywalk is to be installed in Farmington in the spring of this year. The library made the Farmington Storywalk® the focus of their ROC the Day Fundraiser in December, and community members supported the effort with generous donations. In January, Dave Plante, Kiwanis Club Member, delivered a $1,000 grant from the club to the library, bringing the project’s fundraising to a successful conclusion.
Town of Farmington Highway/Parks Superintendent Don Giroux, and Town Supervisor Peter Ingalsbe helped identifythe perfect location for the new Storywalk®, which will surround the existing playground at Farmington’s Town Park on County Road 8. This addition will encourage literacy, physical activity, and families to spend time together in the great outdoors. Watch for news about the Grand Opening of the Farmington Storywalk® this spring. Anne Ferguson of Montpellier, VT is credited with developing the Storywalk Project and in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
