Congratulations to Brian Jennings

On Sunday, May 17, the Historical Society of Rockland County hosted a supper on the beautiful grounds of the Jacob Blauvelt house in New City.  The Society celebrated and honored the winners of the annual Rockland County Executive's Historic Preservation Merit Award.  Among the honorees was our own local history librarian, Brian Jennings, who won the award for Preservation Leadership. Brian joined us only a year and a half ago, and in that time he has exhibited his passion for local history with innovative programming and usage of digital technology to preserve our paper and microfilm resources.  Check out his burgeoning collection of Rockland County oral histories (http://www.newcitylibrary.org/oralhistory). And stay tuned for his Listen 'n' Learn programs - where selected excerpts from these recordings are played and discussed with the interview subjects.  It's a great way to experience living history up close and personally!
