Summer Teen Volunteers 2014

If you want to volunteer this summer at the library, please attend the Youth Board Meeting on Tuesday, June 10 at 7 pm in the Meeting Room of the library.  At that time there will be applications for those teens who want to volunteer for the Children's Summer Reading Club.  Only 20 teens will be selected for the Reading Club, and you must be entering 10th grade or up to be considered. 

However, there are other volunteer opportunities for teens in grades 7th and up this summer.  At the June meeting there will be sign-up sheets for a variety of projects.  If you can not attend this meeting, please email the Teen Librarian, Mrs. Phillips,     [ mphillip@rcls.org].

Fairs, Steamboats and “The Quota” : 150 years ago in Rockland County

What was happening in Rockland County 150 years ago? You can read the digitized issues of the Rockland County Messenger online at http://news.hrvh.org.  The editor of the Messenger bragged about the quality of the Steamboat service as the ships returned to service after the winter in an article entitled "Our Steamboats".  This weekly newspaper published the schedule for the steamships on the back page of each issue.

Babies at the Library??

Sure thing! Studies have shown that babies develop better communication skills when they hear language patterns and new words frequently.  What better way to do this than come to the library and read to your baby? We have a nice collection of sturdy board books for those little hands.  For even more stimulation, bring your little ones to Romper Room - a program of music, rhyming, rhythm and bubbles!  We are offering sessions on Wednesdays at 10am and 11am from April 23 through May 28.  Children from one month to preschoolers and their caregivers are welcome to attend.  Due to limited space, we ask that only one adult per child comes, but each adult can bring all the children in their care - including those babies!
