OH, THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS FRIGHTFUL...

Alright, let's face it: unless you've gone the way of the snowbirds for your winter vacation, it's COLD out there!  As much as I love skiing and skating, there's something about deep-freeze cold that just makes me want to curl up with a fuzzy blanket, a hot cup of tea, and a nice, cozy read. 

It's a bit chilly between the covers of this month's titles, too, and the characters are-- well, they're with me on the fuzzy blanket part, at least.  (I'm sure they're only sharing to conserve warmth.)  If you're looking for a good book for your own winter snuggle, I recommend one from the list below.  Whether they warm your heart or heat your cheeks, these winter romances will help keep you toasty!

This is a Test Change

This is only a test. Do not be alarmed.

Every Day is a Good Day

This phrase was said in a conversation with some friends recently.  It really hit home.  The circulation staff tries its best to insure the time you spend checking out books or taking care of other transactions at our desk is a good experience.  Resolving your concerns, answering your question or just having a chat about a good read gives us a good feeling; we hope it's a positive experience for you.  During the month of January this goal will be tested.  The lobby area is being renovated and the circulation desk moved to a temporary location near the reference desk.  We'll be there for you, just a bit differently than usual.  Just knowing we can continue to meet your expectations will make each day a good day for us and help us help you.

HISTORIC HOUSES

This replica was the site for the second hospital in Rockland County established in 1902, owned by Mrs. Thomas Fortune Ryan. It was known as the Messimer mansion on Orange Avenue and ownership was given to the Sisters of Charity by Mrs. Ryan. Good Samaritan Hospital opened in November of that year with seven nurses, three physicians and seven beds. Dr. Sylvester Demarest was the first president of the medical staff. This site was abandoned for lack of space for expansion and the present hospital on Route 59 opened in 1938. During its last years the old mansion was used as apartments for the nurses and during World War II the headquarters of the War Rationing Board.
