Here Be Dragons

For creatures of myth, dragons certainly get around.

As long as we've been writing the history of ourselves, we've been writing about dragons.  They're sculpted on Babylon's Ishtar Gate and described on Agamemnon's armor in the Iliad.  They adorn a temple in Teotihuacan and are depicted in seashells beside a Chinese grave over six thousand years old.  There are dragon legends from every continent except Antarctica (unless you count Dragon Glacier).  You've probably heard some of their names before: Lotan. Tiamat. Fei Lian. Ladon. Yamata-no-Orochi. Quetzalcoatl. Y Ddraig Goch. Fafnir.

Summer Newsletter

Congratulations to Brian Jennings

On Sunday, May 17, the Historical Society of Rockland County hosted a supper on the beautiful grounds of the Jacob Blauvelt house in New City.  The Society celebrated and honored the winners of the annual Rockland County Executive's Historic Preservation Merit Award.  Among the honorees was our own local history librarian, Brian Jennings, who won the award for Preservation Leadership. Brian joined us only a year and a half ago, and in that time he has exhibited his passion for local history with innovative programming and usage of digital technology to preserve our paper and microfilm resources.  Check out his burgeoning collection of Rockland County oral histories (http://www.newcitylibrary.org/oralhistory). And stay tuned for his Listen 'n' Learn programs - where selected excerpts from these recordings are played and discussed with the interview subjects.  It's a great way to experience living history up close and personally!
