Like it or not, the Journal News is the major newspaper in Rockland and Westchester counties, and we rely on it as our primary local news source.  Librarians are often asked for help in retrieving news articles and obituaries from the Journal News.  Unfortunately, for the greatest part of its existence, the Journal News has not been indexed!  So, for example, a genealogist looking for an obituary must have some idea of the date of death, or they will be endlessly searching the microfilm.  The same grim scenario exists for anyone searching the microfilm without a date.

What kid wants to watch educational DVDs???

Maybe yours!  Tired of viewing those same old cartoon DVDs again and again?  Sitting in front of the game system fighting the aliens getting old?  We have a huge selection in the children's DVD section covering topics from home safety to how the rides at Disney World work.  Among our collection of more than 350 titles are several series.  We all love Bill Nye the Science Guy's way of introducing complex topics to young viewers using humor and sight gags.  Families of the World series shows the traditional cultures of many countries, each with its own DVD.  We have recently added Families of Guatemala, Families of Russia, and Families of Israel.  The titles in this series that we don't own in our collection can be borrowed through inter-library loan and picked up right here for your convenience.  Another excellent series is Global Wonders, which shows a culturally-diverse group of young friends how their traditions have impacted the arts, sciences, etc.  For more adventure, take a look at

LAST All Aboard! Storytime for 2012

If you haven't attended this program in Congers yet, next Wednesday November 21 is your last chance this year.  Join us for an out-of-library experience in the historic Congers Train Station.  We read stories and sing songs in front of the fireplace - and sometimes see the train go by.  Bring along a mat to sit on and a grownup.  There's plenty of parking and restrooms are available.  We begin at 10:00 am and run for 30 - 40 minutes.  No registration or library card is needed.  Hope to see you there!
