One of the most common questions we librarians get concerns what kind of ___________do I buy?  Just fill in the blank, mattress, toaster oven, laptop, washing machine, etc.  When faced with making a purchase, most people want to spend their hard-earned money on the right product.  The best way to make a wise decision is to arm yourself with the proper research.  Most people know and trust Consumer Reports and ask for it by name, and you can access it by using our on-line subscription or Ebsco Masterfile Premier’s on-line database.

Ready for a frightfully fun time?

Registration for our third annual Pumpkinpalooza is under way. Join us next Friday, October 24 at 4:00pm for a chilling session of stories presented by the "Story for Kids Club" of Clarkstown North High School.  These teens will tell frightful tales and scary stories appropriate for brave little youngsters ages 5 and up.  Wearing costumes is encouraged!  Limited seating is available in our haunted basement room, so call 634-4997 x 121, to reserve your space soon -- if you dare!

The Roof Project

We have been told by Precision Roofing that the project will take about three weeks—which will be three weeks from the start date.  Two things can critically impact this estimated completion date: 1. Work cannot be done in the rain. 2. Unanticipated problems—only some of which will cause delays. 

During the life of the roofing project, there may be odors detected in the building. The odors are the result of the glue that is used to seal down the new roof.  Precision Roofing Co. is using low VOC glue.  A manager of Precision Roofing indicated that the low compliant VOC is more costly but it meets the standards set by state laws.  It does give off a strong, but apparently harmless odor.

A number of formalities remain, but work should begin shortly on replacing 7 of the 8 roofs on the library.  The eighth one covers the addition to the building and it is in good shape  The other seven roofs will be replaced over the next month weather conditions permitting.  As noted, no work can be done in the rain.

New DVD Release for October 14th

We have one new title for Tuesday, October 14th.  It is:

X-Men: Days of Future Past (Hugh Jackman)

Director’s Report to the Board of Trustees for October

1. Roof Project – Update

A number of formalities remain, but work should begin shortly on replacing 7 of the 8 roofs on the library.  The eighth one covers the addition to the building.  Since it is much newer it is in good shape.  All of the others will be replaced over the next month weather conditions permitting.  No work can be done in the rain.

Concerns were raised over the legally required signs that indicated that asbestos will be removed as part of the overall roof removal process.  It is our understanding that there is no danger from the asbestos removal.  GEO Environmental has the specific contractual responsibility to examine the completed project for any asbestos issues.  The asbestos removal is being done by a subcontractor of Precision Roof Inc. The subcontractor specializes in asbestos removal. All of the workers are certified and licensed by the state.

At some point, there may be odors detected in the building. The odors will be the result of the new roof being glued down.
