Finally, The telephone issues we were having here at the library are resolved! We apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced in trying to reach us over the last month. We switched phone service providers and there was an issue specifically with the turn over of Verizon land lines.

The History of the Hudson River Valley, from Wilderness to the Civil War

Special Reading and Q&A with the author Vernon Benjamin Saturday June 28th at 3:15 PM

 

“The ultimate work on an exceptionally important subject. The encyclopedic scope and intelligent selective use of Vernon Benjamin’s research, the systematic ordering of the material, the felicitous writing style, and the fluent, easy way in which he continuously interweaves the present with the remote past and the humanities with the sciences, all combine to instill a keen sense of excitement. If you are looking for one solid, all-purpose history of the Hudson Valley, this is it.” —J. Winthrop Aldrich Deputy Commissioner for Historic Preservation (Ret.), New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation

SUMMER READING 2014

Here is a list of the Summer Reading programs and events. The program begins July 7th and runs through Friday August 26th. There are a few subtle changes from the version we had printed  and available on the counter at the library last week.

And just a note to families: In some cases we have listed ages appropriate for the activities planned, but if there is a sibling involved, we will do our best to accommodate them. Call Tracy at the library for more info or to help find a program that is right for your child.

The list of Summer Reading programs and events is over there, third button under the Facebook icon.
