In a way Winter is the real Spring–the time when the inner things happen, the resurgence of nature.
The Library sends to all best wishes and peace for the upcoming holiday season. December will be a quiet time at the Library, we will have all our regular daytime programs, but in light of all special events of the season, we will not have evening programs this month. We do encourage you to come in and gather books and movies to share at home or come in to a quiet place to read or work on our computers. January and the new year will bring many new classes and events and the return of existing programs to you. Open Water Colors on Wednesdays, a new Local History And In the Finger Lakes series starting with anthropologist Jack Rossen on the early Iroquois, and Making Maple Syrup with Steve Gabriel. The Havana Book Club author will be Jeanette Walls, and Song and Story and Story Telling Circle will return. Special events for the Library: January 5 – a Moose Breakfast to benefit the Library. In February, First Friday series of Music will begin and continue throughout the year. In March, a bus trip to a New York City art museum, In April – Annual Spring Book Sale, In May, a House and Garden Tour of Montour with the Zonta Club. In June – Ancestors day, and in August, the Annual Summer Book Sale. I wish to thank everyone who has helped and supported the Library this year, and I look forward to meeting more of our community in the upcoming year. Please consider an end of year donation to the Library by either dropping by or using Paypal on our website: montourfallslibrary.org. Thank you all and have a great month and a wonderful holiday.
