We loved seeing so many happy faces at our Native American Bird Stories program, and we were graced with appearances from many birds vying to claim the story spotlight. We now have binoculars that you can check out with your library card that are ideal for bird watching. (We also have several kid-size binoculars for family fun.) We are continually adding to our Library of Things you can borrow.
We want to make everyone aware that we now have prescription drug disposal kits available for free at the library. These kits, provided by Ulster County, allow you to safely and conveniently dispose of unused medications at home. Leftover prescriptions lead to addictions, deaths and pollution. (Learn more here.) Just ask for a kit at the circulation desk.
We will have a book discussion May 25 at 6:30 p.m. on the novel How Beautiful We Were by Imbolo Mbue. Released in 2021, this is Mbue’s second novel and pulls you in instantly. “Set in the fictional African village of Kosawa, this is the story of a people living in fear amidst environmental degradation wrought by an American oil company.” “A novel with the richness and power of a great contemporary fable, and a heroine for our time.”—Sigrid Nunez, author of The Friend, winner of the National Book Award” I will be leading the book discussion. I hope you will join me!
