Teen Reading Club --- It's Not Too Late to Join--- Free Renaissance Tickets!

 

Under Teens on our website is a simple sign-up for the Teen Reading Club (Grades 7-12).  You can read just one book this summer or dozens; there is no requirement.  For each book you read you get a chance for our raffle bag of great prizes. 

We have a weekly "Book in a Jar" at the Adult Reference Desk, and each week you finish reading  a book you can pick up a prize at the Adult Reference Desk.  The week of July 28 we have free tickets to the New York Renaissance Faire.  Don't miss out.  This ticket has a value of $24!  So join today and do a little reading for great prizes.  Last week's winner of "Book in a Jar" was Anetha Abraham who correctly identified the book  No More Dead Dogs by Gordon Korman.  She won a movie pass for the AMC Theater at the Palisades Mall.

Medical Books

Need a really excellent physicians handbook that one can look up their doctors' background. The in one in the library is not good. Thanks.

Unfortunately in this digital age,  many of the print resources once available have disappeared. Our current physicians books published by Castle Connolly are one of the few readily available for library use. We will look into alternative resources.

Summer Reading Club Winner

Last week Thomas Calletto won a movie ticket to the West Nyack Mall in our "Book in a Bottle." His correct entry was Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins.  Remember that the winner is drawn from all the correct answers.  It's not too late to join the Teen Summer Reading Club and win weekly prizes including a free ticket to the Renaissance Faire.  We also have programs including crafts, food, movies, games and laser tag.  You can sign up on the left side of this page and also report online.  Prizes will be at the Adult Reference Desk.

 

Elrond and friends attended the showing of The Desolation of Smaug last week.  Afterwards everyone enoyed a spirited game of laser tag in the library after hours.  We will have another evening of games, pizza, and film on Thursday, July 24 starting at 7 pm.  Our film will be episodes of Sherlock from the BBC series.  Please register for this event.

Director’s Report to the Board of Trustees for June

  1.  AV Grant

From a formal standpoint the New City Library is officially done with the AV Grant.  New York State Library Development sent to the Library the FS-10 Approved Report, the official sign-off by the State.

On the furniture front, the new table top for the children’s computer table was finally delivered.  The installers should have the replacement table top in position by close of business, July 11.  Note that it’s the third one—we hope they got it right this time, and we can close the book on the furnishings for the Children’s Room.  Also two chairs that were delivered did not have their cut-outs match the chairs that were originally ordered.  The supplier has been notified, and we trust that this will be resolved—but if the future is like the past, it will not happen quickly.

Other than these couple of issues in the children’s room that will be resolved, let’s put the grant behind us and move on to other initiatives now.
