Announcement of the Departure of Dr. Mitch Freedman

Dr. Maurice J. (Mitch) Freedman announced his resignation as Director of the New City Library effective March 19, 2015.  He has served in this capacity for nearly two years.

During his tenure at New City, Dr. Freedman provided leadership, energy, and expertise needed by the New City Library and helped restore a positive image which was waning prior to his joining the Library.  Under his direction, the Library restructured the audiovisual department, refreshed the Children’s Room and upgraded the technology of the main meeting space. The deterioration of the physical plant was addressed with seven of the eight roofs redone and numerous other needed repairs completed or begun. 

Dr. Freedman also contracted with Library consultants who are working with the Library staff to develop a new five-year plan which will guide the Library into the future. His passion for perfection led him to ensure the Library’s future not only in function, but in encouraging the staff both in spirit and in action. Dr. Freedman was rightly proud that so many patrons come to the library each Thursday specifically for the Director’s Film Series which he initiated.

Better Than Google

Many of you savvy investors out there are familiar with Value Line, but how many of you are aware how it began?   Did you know that the real bottom dropped out of the stock market, not in the intial crash of 1929, but in 1932, when stocks were worth only 10% of their pre-crash value?  A young employee of Moody's at the time, was horrifed that his mother's entire nest egg was wipedout, and soon he was out of a job. Noting that there was no system for rating stocks, he decided to work on his theory of value line rating. This young man, Arnold Bernhard, decided to "find and disclose a standard of normal value which would so enlighten the investing public that the extremes of 1929 and 1932 could never again be repeated."  Thus, Value Line was born. Value Line is available through our database page, and has proved immensely popular with our patrons.  It is easy to use and includes all the great features, and more, that has made Value Line the gold standard for today's investors.
