Fred & Trudy Hicks Present at Next Book Review Luncheon

Posted by mcorreia on

The ever-popular Friends of the Library Book Review Luncheon returns on Friday, December 14 at noon with Fred and Trudy Hick’s presentation of the book The Kelloggs: The Battling Brothers of Battle Creek. You may not know – but soon will – that the Kellogg brothers (of cereal fame) “helped change the course of American medicine, nutrition, wellness, and diet” (Amazon.com).

This is sure to be a lively and entertaining book review. And can you beat $5 for lunch?

Call the library or stop in to sign up.

Announcing Emergency Closings for Weather

Posted by mcorreia on

At times, the library has to close due to weather and unsafe travel conditions. We would much rather know people are safe at home instead of trying to get to the library to return their books or movies that are due that day.

Closure of Newark Central School District schools does not automatically mean that the library will also be closed.

When the library closes for any emergency reason, including weather, the closing will be listed on FOX Rochester, 13 WHAM ABC, as well as on the library’s Facebook and website pages, when possible. Unfortunately, we are unable to access the phone system from home and therefore cannot have a “closed for weather” message as a greeting when you call the library. Instead, the phone will ring and ring without being answered.

Thank you

Puzzle Exchange

Posted by mcorreia on

NEW at the library, at the request of a community member, we have added a jigsaw puzzle exchange.

Bring in a puzzle from home and trade it with one here.  Or just borrow one and bring it back when you’re done with it.

Donations of puzzles is greatly appreciated — just drop them off on the puzzle exchange shelves, which can be found near the new books in the upstairs of the library.

Cookbook Club

Posted by mcorreia on

Join us on the first Monday of each month at 1:00pm as we explore a new category of food and try new recipes.

Borrow a cookbook (optional) and try a new recipe at home.  Then bring the food you made and the recipe to the library to share and talk about your experience cooking the recipe.  If possible, please bring your recipe in ahead of time so we can make copies for everyone.  We will make and share a different kind of food each month.  Check the library’s online calendar for more information and to sign up.
