Again, thank  you for taking part in our contest.

One Veteran's Memories

It's Veterans Day and the library will be open from 11-6 today.  Remember to call or thank a veteran today for their service to our country.  We've interviewed many local veterans in the past few years as part of our oral history program here at the library.  Early in September we spoke with Albert H. Davis, a long-time New City resident and veteran of World War II.  In the clip below he recalls some of his first experiences in action during World War II.

Remembering Bert Dahm

Rockland County lost another great one as Bert Dahm passed away last week.   I had just received a letter from him encouraging support for Heritage of West Nyack and their work with the Vanderbilt Onderdonk Traphagen property, so he was working tirelessly for historic preservation right until the end of his life.  He sat down for an interview with us back in 2014 and we're so glad that we have his memories to share with the community of growing up in West Nyack, how the Clarkstown Central School district emerged from a collection of small schoolhouses, the story of Rockland's vanished airports and much more.
