Graphic Content

CBLDF BBW Jeff Smith posterEvery year, libraries and bookstores around the country set aside the last week in September for Banned Books Week.  In this week, we seek to remind everyone of the benefits of free and open access to information.  We underscore the dangers of censorship.  And we honor a right we never, ever want to lose: our Constitutionally guaranteed freedom to read. 

Volunteers Needed!!

Student and adult volunteers are needed to help with the children's Chess Club.  Experienced chess players can volunteer to assist with children ages 7-12 years by providing basic instruction or serving as an opponent.  Meetings are on Fridays 4-5:00pm twice a month.  Students will be compensated with service hours and adults will be showered with gratitude!  Check the library's calendar for upcoming meeting dates.

The Cube at the New City Library

Get a sneak peek from one of our interviews from this past weekend on Soundcloud Picture a ten-foot stainless steel cube, balancing on its edge. The surrounding area are mirrored in the metallic sides of this beautiful piece of modern sculpture. Suddenly the door opens to reveal a comfortable, soundproof recording booth. Welcome to The Cube.

The Civil War and Clarkstown

We have a small exhibit in the library about Clarkstown and the Civil War through the end of November.  You can find it in the exhibit case past the DVDs heading toward the Rockland Room.   There is also an online exhibit with more information at http://rocklandroom.omeka.net/exhibits/show/civilwar.  Highlights include the story of General Louis Blenker who owned a farm in New City, a look at brothers who served in the Civil War from Clarkstown, and some information about African American veterans buried at Mt.
