Program Notes Archive

family-tree On Sunday June 8th from 12:30-3:30pm, the library welcomes members of the Troy Irish Genealogy Society. They will be on hand to assist people in looking up information about their ancestors. Half hour sessions are available for registration in advance, as well as walk-ins. You do NOT need to be of Irish descent. Bring any information you already have along with your questions. Especially useful will be the names of parents and grandparents, their dates of birth and where they were born or lived. The volunteer researchers will do their best to find answers, which can sometimes be surprising! Please call the library at 237-0891 for additional information or to register.

despermouseWe are debuting a new family program series this month, called Family Book Club. The idea is for families to get together and read a popular children’s book, then join us at the library to discuss the book AND then watch a movie based on the book! Our first title is “The Tale of Despereaux” by Kate DiCamillo. We will be gathering here on Saturday April 19th beginning at noon to watch the movie and discuss the book. Oh and eat some soup! We are requesting that families interested in participating register in advance for the program, which is open to children of all ages and their families. Contact Liz at 237-0891 or lliddington@sals.edu for complete information.

quilliosundaysounds We are pleased to once again offer a great opportunity to experience some tremendously talented musicians in a unique setting. Our “Sunday Sounds” occasional music series returns this Sunday with a performance by local fave, Olivia Quillio. Utilizing a modified ukelele to complement her folk inspired torch songs, Olivia has garnered notice at the local and regional levels. This performance will be her last locally until the summer, as she heads out on an extended road trip. Showtime is 2pm and admission is free. Seating is limited. Our next show will take place on March 2nd and feature a family group called the Hurleys.
