Better Than Google

LearningExpress Library is one of the most valuable databases we have.  In my opinion, it is an undiscovered treasure that every patron should know about and use often.  You will find it on our business database page, and also on the students page, and sign in with your New City library card.
  Whether you are a fourth grader who needs extra help in math, a college graduate preparing for the GRE, or looking to acquire or refresh computer skills, LearningExpress is the place to go.  The database is made up of e-books, courses, and practice tests.  In the comfort of your own home, or the library, you can learn new skills, and polish up old ones.

Photo Quilts

Family photos have a way of piling up, demanding organization and care. Fortunately, today we have many avenues available for arranging these family treasures. We are now able to email them, store on our computers, send to an online service for processing and post on a web site for anyone to view. However, one way that is not as well known is printing digital photos on fabric.

The Genealogy Society of Rockland has asked Debra Calyo, an avid quilter, to the June 26 meeting starting at 7 PM. Debra will bring samples of her creative work and explain the process.The technique is not limited to just quilts as most fabrics will take the images. Banners, clothing, tote bags are a few of the ways you can create family scrapbooks. For those with planned summer/fall family reunions, this concept may be a great way to share family memories with others.

The Genealogy Society always welcomes guests and those who are curious about genealogy. Meetings are scheduled on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 7 PM. The group does not meet July, August and December. Hope to see you.
