All Aboard! Storytime is back!

                     

NO PROGRAM ON TUESDAY 10/8/13. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Drop-in storytime at the Congers Train Station will be presented for six weeks, starting September 17th, every Tuesday at 10am.  Bring a mat to sit on and grownups must stay with their little ones.  No registration or library card is needed, so come by when it is convenient for your family. There is plenty of parking and restrooms are available.  Suitable for good little listeners ages 3 and up.  The last session will be on October 29th and will feature spooky stories, so wear your costumes!

What's Cooking?: Amish Friendship Bread

It is the end of the summer season.   No more 90 degree plus temperatures, nor sweating through a heat wave, nor being drenched in the humidity.   Yet amidst the sauna like conditions, I was crazy enough to bake my way through the whole summer with this one recipe - Amish Friendship Bread.  Everyone loved it!  It spurred me on to fire that oven even through those hot days.    

Battle of the Books

After a grueling competition amongst teens from libraries in the Catskills, Orange and Rockland Counties, New City Library  took home the Banner for Third Place.  From left to right are the following team members:  Shawna McKivergan, Marie Yatsky, Mary Phillips, Priyanka Ramanathan, Nicholas Procino, Ben Eisenberg, Allison Eisenberg, Susan Zollinger, Karen Zollinger, Chanda Bhandal, and Rathna Ramanathan.

The Teens read eight books representing classics, nonfiction, science fiction, mystery, historical fiction, graphic novel and realistic fiction.  The titles were

1.     The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Donan Doyle

2.     How They Croaked by Georgia Bragg

3.     Legend by Marie Lu

4.     Smile by Raina Telgemeier

5.     13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson

6.     Drums, Girls & Dangerous Pie by Jordan Sonnenblick

"I'll get around to reading that someday..."

How about today? Join the new book club Getting Around to It and tackle all those books you've stored away for a rainy day. We'll be reading titles that are classic (both modern and old), prize winners and college classroom standards. Our first meeting will be on Tuesday, September 24 at 2PM, where we will discuss Candide by Voltaire. One of the most famous satirical novels, Voltaire merrily lampoons the philosophy of optimism with the misadventures of his young protagonist. There are copies available in the lobby.
