And, when you’re all caught up on the history, you can click here for a resource on Black History Month events running in Kingston, thanks to the A.J. Williams-Myers African Roots Center. Among the lineup are a Comedy Slam, A Nubian Cafe, and a Racial Justice Action Night, just to name a few. Check out their website for the full list and even more resources!

African Roots Library

In our fast-paced world, it is easy to overlook some incredibly important topics and experiences. Luckily for Kingston, The Library at the A.J. Williams-Myers African Roots Center is here to help.

The A.J. Williams-Myers African Roots Center is dedicated to “promot[ing] literacy through teaching and learning about the African roots experience, including history and culture, through a dynamic exchange of information, ideas, and creativity.”

You can visit their website to check out their calendar of events and their online catalog, or just go in and see their collection in person on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 43 Gill Street.

Make sure you stay tuned, as they’re running a bunch of great events in February in honor of Black History Month.

What do unused medications, half a bottle of windex, and your old cell phone have in common?

They can all be recycled by the Ulster County Resource Recovery Agency!

The Ulster County Resource Recovery Agency is a public benefit corporation dedicated to keeping our water sources clean and our landfills down. They offer some services for businesses, such as composting and general recycling. For residents, they provide free drop off locations for cell phones and pharmaceutical waste as well as yearly drives for household waste that you shouldn’t dump down the drain, like Clorox and Windex.

You can visit their website to check out their drop off locations, sign up for one of their household waste drives, and learn more about recycling and composting.  What’re you waiting for?
