New York Photosongs September 21st @4pm

Award winning Songwriter John John Brown has set out to educate and entertain with his imaginative new project New York Photosongs. At the heart of this exploration are seven original folk songs that tell the amazing true stories behind some of New York State’s most iconic and obscure photographs. Armed with his guitar, inspiring 4×5 foot photographs, and 15 years as a public school educator, John John Brown shines a light on some of the most interesting New Yorkers who’ve walked before us.

Story Hour returns every Thursday morning, beginning September 12th at 11AM!!!

October Book Club

This month’s book selection is  A Gentleman In Moscow.   A Gentleman in Moscow immerses us in another elegantly drawn era with the story of Count Alexander Rostov. When, in 1922, he is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, the count is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel’s doors. Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him a doorway into a much larger world of emotional discovery.  The book club will meet on October 16th @ 1pm  in the Cultural Center of the library for discussion.  Everyone is welcome! Call the library to reserve the book.
