Think for a moment of the pastimes available to modern Rochesterians: sporting events, concerts, theaters, parks, libraries, museums, movies, television programs, and streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu. The leisure options are almost limitless.

How did residents of an emerging 19th century village like Rochester relax?

It's almost time to start transferring those seedling to the garden. Did you know that tomatoes hate cucumbers. Make sure you give each plant a friendly neighbor. You can find more information about gardening in our Science Division and in the Children's Division for our young gardeners. #Gardening #CompanionPlanting #RochesterNY #RochesterPublicLibrary #Gardens #CompanionGardening

Have you ever head of "Genesee Fever"? One of the greatest hardships to be overcome in early Rochester was illness. “Genesee fever” was a common umbrella term for a variety of maladies that came with accompanying fevers. Most likely the cause was either typhoid or malaria. Learn more about "Genesee Fever" in our latest RocHistory blog. #RochesterNY #RochesterPublicLibrary #LocalHistory #History #Illness
