ON THE LIBRARY
The 2005 summer reading programs have come to an end, but the summer
heat is still upon us. Here at the Library, we are planning our many fall
programs. However, we must first finish the summer in style. The book sale
will begin its "all you can carry" program on Monday, August 15 and
continue until Friday, August 26. A creative writing workshop will be held
on Friday, August 26 from 6 until 8 pm. These are the final events at the
Library for the month of August, but there is much to look forward to in
This year we have extended the "all you can carry" book sale program
for one more week. Starting August 15, patrons may come to the book sale
and take as many books as they can carry for one dollar. Normally, this
program would only last one week, but we have extended the program until
Friday, August 26. This extension is a good way for patrons to stock-up on
all the great used books the Library has to offer. Remember, all of the
money made during the book sale is used to purchase new materials for the
Library. There is only one rule for this year's "all you can carry
program", please do not bring in carts or wheelbarrows to haul out books.
If you need assistance carrying books out to your car, Library staff would
be more than happy to help you.

|A creative writing
workshop, WRITING FROM YOUR MEMORIES, will held at the Library on Friday,
August 26 at 6 pm. Susannah Risley, a fiction writer and poet from
Schenectady, will facilitate the two-hour program. She will read a short
piece of her work, discuss memoir writing, and give a fun exercise geared
to access a specific early memory. Participants will use their
recollection to write. Everyone is invited to attend this free workshop.
You do not need writing experience, but you do need to pre-register.
Please call or visit the Library to sign-up.
Ms. Risley has had short stories published in national magazines and is
the recipient of a James A. Mitchener Award for a novel in progress. She
has taught workshops in Libraries across the state, community centers and
homeless shelters. She also works in arts-in-education in schools. This
workshop is funded in part by Poets & Writers, Inc. through a grant it has
received from the NY State Council on the Arts.
Although the summer programs will conclude on Friday, August 26, there
is much to look forward to this fall. Included in the fall line-up are: a
lecture by local author, Dr. Meic Pearse, who wrote the book, "Why the
Rest Hates the West", a book discussion on the best-seller, "The Earth is
Flat After All", by Tom Friedman, a family nature program called,
"Fur, Skulls, Tracks & Scat" offered by the Pfeiffer Nature Center and a
career building workshop offered by the Adult Educational Opportunity
Center. These are just some of the programs being offered at the Library
during the months of September and October. The Library will be publishing
a newsletter before the end of August to inform patrons of upcoming
events. Be sure to stop into the Library the first week of September to
learn what is happening at your Library.
