WEEKLY QUOTE  “[K]nowledge should not be viewed as existing in isolated parts, but as a whole, each portion of which throws light on all the other, and [the] tendency of all is to improve the human mind, and give it new sources of power and enjoyment.” – Joseph Henry, American scientist

 

ADIRONDACK MUSEUM  The Friends of the Library have purchased a 2016 discount pass for the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake.  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 all children ages 5 – 17 (children younger than 5 are always free.)  Stop in or call for the details.
