A New Walkway
into the Library
The Library has a grand new walkway made from 370 million-year old bluestone (feldspathic sandstone) recently recycled from our old dismantled sidewalk.
Randy de Laura designed the walk, cut and prepared 34 stones, and installed a design 38.10 feet long by 7 feet wide in a walkway that will provide easier and safer access to the Library. The construction of the walk was donated by a Library patron.

Computer Software Upgrade
We are happy to announce that we will be joining other Mid-Hudson Library System libraries by offering SAM. SAM stands for Smart Access Management. Sam will manage the public access computers, which are used for internet, word processing and other computer operations. SAM will schedule and time the use of the computers, allowing more patrons to have access to our computer stations. SAM will also manage printing, by allowing patrons to use their library card as a prepaid printing account. Patrons will be able to see how many pages and what the cost will be before they print. If they choose to print, the amount of the job is deducted from their prepaid balance on their library card. You will need to have your Library card with you to use the Library's computers.
The Library has just received news that we have been awarded a 2012 Museum Conservation Treatment Grant from the Greater Hudson Heritage Network in the amount of $3750 for conservation treatment for one of our portraits by Francesco Anelli done around 1840. The paintings are of Julia Lawrence Hasbrouck and her husband Garret Decker Hasbrouck. The work will be done by Susan Blakney from Westlake Conservators, LTD. Stay tuned for details on which painting we will select for this segment of our conservation work and our hopes for continuing conservation for the pair of portraits, key components of the Library's local history collection.
Women's Empowerment in Fiction: The Millenium Trilogy Explored
Funded through a New York Council for the Humanities Project Grant.
Scholar Angelina Birney will lead us through a lively discussion series based on Stieg Larsson's trilogy.
The program is free and open to the public, but registration for the series is required. Please call the program office, 687-8726 for details or sign up on our online calendar.
Stieg Larsson gives us a male perspective of the female plight in the world—from sex trafficking, to physical abuse and violence, to subjugation in the political and professional arenas. Simultaneously, Larson explores powerful female figures, in particular that of the central character, Lisbeth Salander, whose resourcefulness drives her toward justice. The fourth session will focus on Stieg Larsson whose passion for justice and journalistic ethics in concert with his respect for women was the impetus for his incredibly riveting and thought provoking trilogy. Books will be available to borrow at the Circulation Desk prior to the sessions.

An alumna of the White House Project, an organization which promotes women's advancement and leadership, she is the author of Powerful Women Changing the World—a blog dedicated to women's influence in world affairs.

The Clio's Muse Book Group meets five times a year: March, May, July, September, and November.
Tuesday, September 4,
1:30-2:30 in the Bio Room
This new program will be offered on the First Tuesday of each month. Cliff Rockmuller, former language teacher at the Rondout Valley School District, will facilitate.

EASY DOES IT YOGA

MEMOIR WRITING GROUP

Move to Music with our
Dance and Rhythm Group
10:45 to 11:45
at the Marbletown Community Center
If you would enjoy stretching, moving and dancing to all kinds of music come join us at the Marbletown Comunity center on Thursdays. We don't have a teacher, we wear comfortable clothing, go barefoot or not, and bring CDs or cassettes of our choosing. For more information call 687-7186.
The Stone Ridge Library Knitters meet every Saturday morning from 10am - 12noon. All ages and experience levels can join us and drop-in knitters are also welcome. We each bring our own supplies and do our own work, but one of the best things about us is that whatever obstacle or confusion you might encounter, you're likely to receive as much comment and advice as you need to get where you're going with a project. Some of us can help toward the repair of knitted or crocheted items too.
The group is sociable and lively, and our conversation and sharing is just as wide-ranging as our projects. We are especially interested in the UFOs (Un-Finished Objects) that members bring in and love the show and tell of projects under way and being finished, new or old, simple or complex. Though knitting is our love and mainstay, we graciously adapt ourselves to stray crocheters and those of us who simply must take to the hook when the spirit moves. We share articles, magazines and books on knitting. Donations of yarn to the Library get made up into items for sale at the Library Fair and during the winter holidays for the benefit of the Library. Some of us also knit things for local hospitals or for the U.S. troops.

Reissues revive old titles
Reissued books are lucky. They've often been rescued from obscurity by publishers willing to gamble that they'll be loved as much now as they were then. Discover what made them worth taking a second chance.
The Moonflower Vine by Jetta Carleton. This novel, originally published in 1962, is told from the perspective of individual members of a Midwestern family. A story about the bonds of love, it was included in the summer 1963 edition of Reader's Digest Condensed Books.
Pistols for Two by Georgette Heyer. In 1960, prolific author Georgette Heyer produced this collection of 11 stand-alone short stories, set in the Regency era, that "run the gamut from cloak-and-dagger to whimsical comedy." Like Jane Austen? Give Heyer a try.
Nightingale Wood by Stella Gibbons. This 1938 novel mirrors in many ways the classic tale of Cinderella, with Viola playing the lead role as a young widow and victim of fate. A Prince Charming is included, but be warned that this one wears his crown askew.
Parnassus on Wheels by Christopher Morley. See what unfolds in this 1917 novel when a middle-aged woman impulsively buys a bookshop-on-wheels. In this memorable little charmer, you'll be sitting right alongside Helen McGill as she takes her long-overdue adventure.
Alison Herrero is the adult services librarian at the Howland Public Library.
