From the Fallsburg Library: August 2017

By Kelly Wells and Amanda Letohic

Although August is just starting, here at the Fallsburg Library we’re already looking forward to September.

September is “Library Card Sign-up Month” and to celebrate we’re offering those who sign up for a new Fallsburg Library card between September 1 and September 30 a chance to win an iTunes gift card! A Fallsburg Library card can be issued FREE to permanent residents and/or property owners within the Fallsburg Central School District. We just need photo ID and proof of residency (tax bill, electric bill, year-long lease agreement, etc.).

Already have a Fallsburg Library card? Recommend a fellow Fallsburg Central School District resident to sign up in September, and if they mention your name, you’ll be entered in the raffle too.

With your new library card, you’ll have access to tens of thousands of books within the Ramapo Catskill Library System (47 member libraries), thousands of movies, e-books, and electronic databases – including the Rosetta Stone Online Language Software. With access to all of these resources and more, your library card really will be the most valuable card in your wallet. Although we’re looking forward to September, be sure to check out some of the great programs we have coming up in August:

On Monday August 7, we’re having a Lego build night! Children can come in at 5 p.m. to build whatever they want out of Legos. On August 9 at 6 p.m., it’s a Teen Night at the library! Come make some beads out of the pages of magazines and turn them into jewelry or keychains. On August 10 at 7 p.m., we have Part Three of our lecture series with Sullivan County Historian John Conway, “From Barns to the Bard: A Brief History of Theatre in Sullivan County.” Don’t miss it!

On August 16 at 3 p.m. children of all ages are welcome to come and see “Here, There and Everywhere- Animals Around the World” with Jan Berlin. Also on August 16, adults are welcome to our healthy eating presentation by Sullivan County Public Health. As always we have our preschool story hour at 10 a.m. on Tuesdays. Our Summer Reading Prize Party will be on Thursday, August 17 at 6 p.m. Don’t forget to bring your reading logs to earn tickets for prizes!
