WORD OF THE WEEK Desipience – Foolishness or silliness
TAX HELP There are still some open slots for free tax help and electronic filing tomorrow April 5th from 10 AM to 4 PM. These individual sessions, lasting about an hour, will be conducted by volunteers from the New York State Tax Department. Please see our website for details and requirements.
EGG DYEING Join us this Thursday at 5 PM. We’ll start off with a nature walk around the park (weather permitting.) Indoors we’ll learn how to dye hard-boiled eggs with natural materials and use the leaves we’ve collected to create silhouettes on the shells.
WORD OF THE WEEK Zastruga: A ridge formed by the wind on a snow-covered surface. These are usually found in series, rather than alone; the plural is zastrugi.
EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS Tonight the 21st at 6:00 PM survival expert Gene LaLonde will be at the library to offer advice on getting through unexpected emergencies, from ice storms to EMP pulses. He will also discuss his novel A Question of Survival, set in the woods of Vermont after a national crisis.
MOVIE NIGHT We’ll be watching Disney’s latest animated feature (a trip to a far more tropical climate) this Thursday the 23rd at 5:30 PM. Join us for popcorn, drinks, and an escape from all this snow.
