What's Cooking? Cookies, Cupcakes, and Chips - No Way!

Summer is soon over…no more leisurely hikes under the umbrella of solitude in the woods, nor feeling the gentle waves at the beach serenely stroking  the tensions away.  Fun-filled days of vacation are winding down.  It’s that time again!  We have started the fervor of getting the kids ready for school. We hunt for school supplies and backpacks, shopping for clothing they have outgrown, arranging our schedules to align with work and school, and thinking of ideas for the kids’ lunches and snacks.

September Birthday

Jim Henson

James Maury Henson was born on September 24, 1936 in Greenville, Mississippi.  Henson was drawn to the arts at a young age.  With the encouragement of his artist grandmother, he started puppeteering by performing for his Cub Scout troop.  While attending the University of Maryland, he starred in an NBC skit called Sam and Friends, from which Kermit the Frog was created.  As his puppets grew in popularity, they started to appear in television commericals.  In 1969, he began working with the Children's Television Workshop, where the Muppets "made learning fun" on Sesame Street.  Kermit, Miss Piggy and Fozzy joined megastars in 1976 on The Muppet Show.  Henson's later work included the tv show Fraggle Rock, several Muppet movies, and other films including, The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth.

Outland-ish Reads

Scottish time travelWe're on the cusp of autumn, and you know what that means.... the regular TV season is starting back up soon! (Not what you expected to hear from a librarian, was it?)  But there are a lot of fantastic shows on now that have been adapted from books (or from book series).  Unfortunately, fans of one of the hottest new shows on cable-- the adaptation of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series-- are going to have to wait a little longer.  Season 2, already in production, isn't slated to debut until sometime in 2016.

Share Listen Learn: Stories of Working in Rockland County

A newspaper editor, a camp counselor, a teacher, a farmer's wife, an electrician, a firefighter, a primitive artist and a retired ad-man walk into a library.  This isn't the start to a bad joke, the stories of residents of Rockland County working in these jobs and others will take the stage as we begin a series called Share, Listen, Learn that features clips from our oral history collection on Tuesday September 8th at 7PM.  Celebrate Labor Day by listening to stories from your neighbors working a number of unique Rockland jobs.
