Interim Director Appointed

At a special meeting of the New City Library trustees Tuesday night, the board unanimously voted to appoint Maurice J. (Mitch) Freedman as interim director of the library. This action alleviates concerns about the library's charter and marks a turning point in the working relations between board members. Freedman served as the director of the Westchester Library System for 23 years and as president of the American Library Association in 2002. Since his retirement, Freedman has worked for his publishing company, the U*N*A*B*A*S*H*E*D Librarian. In addition, he has spoken at conferences, served on numerous boards, and has taken on the roles of interim director at the Purchase Free and Nyack libraries.

What's Cooking?: Breakfast Lovers

Do you love breakfast more than any other meal? There is nothing like waking up leisurely to the smell of freshly brewed coffee with the sound of sizzling crisp bacon, fried eggs over easy and well-seasoned home fried potatoes. Added to this dreamy breakfast are baked blackberry muffins with a pecan streusel topping, flaky orange cranberry scones and decadent cinnamon sticky buns floating out of the oven onto the table. This picturesque meal beckons me to come out of my luxurious sleep.  Maybe I'm still dreaming…

Teens Distribute Trees for Arbor Day

 

This past week encompassed Earth Day and National Arbor Day.  In celebration of these days, teens from the Library Youth Board distributed spruce trees to library residents.  In the past several years, hurricanes and snow storms have damaged and destroyed large numbers of trees in our area.  Spruces are not usually eaten by deer and provide a lovely green color throughout  the winter.  The above volunteers are Erin O'Shea, Brendan O'Shea, Ronith Reddy, Nithin Binu and Nevin Binu.
