Pop-Up Print

April 3, 2020

Communicating with neighbors has been as important as ever these past few weeks. With children separated from one another by six feet, chalk messages have proliferated.

Overdrive’s “Big Read”

April 2, 2020

overdriveFor those of you who have been using Overdrive, the library’s supplier of ebooks and digital audiobooks, (available on our website), consider reading the title chosen for their “Big Read” a global digital book club : Funny, You Don’t Look Autistic: A Comedian’s Guide to Life on the Spectrum. Written by Michael McCreary, a young stand-up comedian who is autistic, it is an entertaining and honest look into his life. You may visit a discussion board, listen to a podcast of an interview of the author or just visit his homepage. Today would be a great time to show support, since it is World Autism Awareness Day. And our library system, Ramapo Catskill, is sponsoring a special presentation for member libraries and their patrons on Facebook Live, this Monday, April 6 at 11 am. Stay tuned for the link to view this bonus…
