Fourth Friday Concert

Cornell University Middle Eastern Music Ensemble

Join the library for a new concert series
on the fourth Friday of every month.

CUMEME was formed to study and perform the popular,
classical, and folkloric music of the Middle East,
a region that includes over 30 countries, over 20 languages, and dozens of religions.

This semester’s music revolves around the experiences of outlaws, criminals, rebels, and prisoners, subjects universally considered taboo in the Middle East. Repertoire ranges from Kurdish women’s military music banned in the last decade to a 1000-year-old Bulgarian folksong that was sent into space on the Voyager probes.

Listen.

November 24
6:00 PM
at the Montour Falls Library

We ask for a $10 donation to support the musicians and the library.

 Seed Library

The seed library is open.

Take free packets of seeds and start a garden at home.
Check out a book (or several) on gardening and seed saving.

This new seed library is provided for free,
so that you can grow your own food,
so that children can learn first-hand about the wonder and excitement of sprouting plants,
and so that there are always different varieties of plants being grown.

You don’t need acres.
Plant in a pot, a window box, a front yard, or a tea mug.

Take; grow; enjoy; it’s as simple as that.
Anyone can come and take seeds.
You don’t even need a library card.

Limit of 15 packets per family.
