WEEKLY QUOTE “By their hands I fain would clasp them – ah! each lives but in a name; But the freedom that they fought for, and the country grand they wrought for, Is their monument to-day, and for aye.” – Thomas Dunn English, American poet and politician


ADIRONDACK MUSEUM  The library once again has a discount pass for the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, courtesy of the Friends of the Library.  It can be checked out at the front desk for two days at a time, and will give 50% off admission for four adults or two adults and children.  Stop in or call for all the details.


BEADING  Come in to learn how to make a napkin holder from wires and beads on Monday the 13th at 3 PM.  If you would like to see additional crafting classes at different times, please let us know.


CAKE PANS  We’ve had so many donations of cake pans we’ve had to reorganize them.  Browse through the new binder for pictures, dimensions, and instructions on how to use some of our specialty items.


REGULAR PROGRAMS  Music and Movement for toddlers is Tuesday at 10 AM.  Story Time for ages 3 – 6, with picture books and crafts, is Wednesday at 10:30 AM.  Drop-in computer help will be Saturday the 4th from 11 AM – 12 PM and next Tuesday the 7th from 6 – 7 PM.  Social Hour is the 8th at 2 PM.  Movie Night is the 16th at 5:30 PM.  Call the library or check out our website for details on all of our events.


JUST ARRIVED  We’ve added to our stock of children’s fiction books this week.  Journey to Nepal and Tibet with a young orphaned boy in What Elephants Know by Eric Dinerstein, take a perilous trip across a kingdom in Susan Hill Long’s The Magic Mirror, or make an even scarier trip across town in Ollie’s Odyssey, written and illustrated by William Joyce.  If your child is more a fan of the comedic, check out Dave Barry’s The Worst Night Ever (a sequel to The Worst Class Trip Ever,) or warm up to summer with The Family Fletcher Takes Rock Island by Dana Alison Levy.  Animals abound in our new picture books.  Check out Have You Seen Elephant?, There is a Tribe of Kids, Wolf Camp, Rain Fish, and Rosie the Raven.   For a more human angle, try My Heart Fills With Happiness, Toshi’s Little Treasures, Thunder Boy, Jr., Diana’s White House Garden, or the more lighthearted If You Ever Want to Bring a Piano to the Beach, Don’t.  On the adult’s shelves, don’t miss out on new novels by Nevada Barr, Sophie Hannah, Douglas Preston, Steve Martini, and Jo Baker.
