Please join us in welcoming local artist Patrick Sherwood at an artist reception, Thursday Feb 5th beginning at 6pm. This event will give people an opportunity to speak with the artist and learn about his creative process. Refreshments will be served. Paintings will be available for sale. The artwork will be on display at the library until March 31st. For more information please contact the library at 237-0891.
We had to do a last minute switcheroo on our movie selection last week, when it was discovered that the Great Race was almost 3 hours length! This week’s selection is right on time though, and may have even more star power! “That Touch of Mink” features Hollywood legends, Cary Grant and Doris Day, along with Audrey Meadows of Honeymooner’s fame, as well as John Astin, perhaps best known for playing Gomez on the Addams Family television series. A very funny and enjoyable film, perfect antidote for a chilly Monday evening! Showtime is always 6pm and admission will cost you nothing. Seating is limited though, so don’t delay! We finish up the series next week with “It Happened on 5th Avenue“.
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.
