Backyard Nature -- Rappin' Raptors Program

Come meet some live local birds from the Tenafly Nature Center and hear about how they live.  Why are they called "raptors"?  How did they come to live at the Nature Center?  How fast can they fly?  Find out the answers to these questions -- and more -- on Tuesday, February 21 at 4:00 pm.  No tickets are necessary, but you need to show your New City or West Nyack Library card for admittance on a first-come, first-served basis. 

School's Out Movies!

Don't forget - next Thursday, 2/23 and Friday, 2/24 during the Clarkstown Schools break we will show family movies at 3:00pm here at the library.  No tickets are required, but you need your New City or West Nyack Library card for admittance.  A limit of 85 persons are allowed in the room per fire regulations, so you may want to arrive a little early.  Yes - there will be popcorn!

Dogs, Coats and Yarn

Jack Russell Terrier with knitted coatDuring the bleak days of February, members from the summer Warm Up America program are gathering on Mondays at 10 AM. Knitters and crocheters meet to work on projects. Out of the past Monday meeting, it was decided to make coats for dogs that will be donated to local animal shelters. It is hoped that enough coats can be made to become fund raisers for the  shelters. If interested, come to the next session, February 13, and get a pattern and some yarn. We will continue the project through the spring though we will not be meeting in the library.

If you have questions or can't make the sessions, call 634-4997 ext 139. Animal shelters are an important part of a community, yet funding for them continues to shrink. Rockland County has certainly suffered shelter cutbacks. Please help in this important program to support these struggling groups.
