Come celebrate Somers Library birthday

April
11

To celebrate the 30-year birthday of Somers Library being in Reis Park,  library leaders are planning a whole day of family activities on Saturday, April 14th.

 

And, as they note quite wisely, it is also National Library Week and there will be special events throughout the week in Somers Library.

 

But on Saturday, the big day, there will be a whole line-up of events from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. These  include clowns, face painting, chamber music concert, raffles and even fine amnesty day. Of note, the librarians are asking residents to share a personal story of 1982.

Says Director Patricia Miller: “Thanks for supporting your library and for making it the intellectual and cultural hub of the town.”

 

Here is the blurb on the library’s newsletter that sets out the history and reason for the birthday celebration:

Where were you in ‘82? If you were anywhere near Somers, you may have noticed contractors putting finishing touches on the new Somers Library in Reis Park. After evolving from a chicken coop in the 1880’s and a small house at the intersection of 116 and 202 (still standing), the Library finally had a place of its own in a real library building. To celebrate the 30-year birthday of this event, we are planning a whole day of family activities on Saturday, April 14th. As this is also National Library week, we’ve lined up exciting events the week before. See details below, on the website, and in the press. We hope to see you here and if you want to share your personal story of what you were doing in ‘82, we’d love to hear that too!

 

Check out all the details on the library’s website.

About this blog
Four longtime Journal News reporters share their insights about fiction, non-fiction, poetry and short stories by bringing books discussions online and exploring the local literati scene. Lots of people say they are booklovers, but Elizabeth Ganga, Barbara Livingston Nackman, Ken Valenti and Randi Weiner really are!


What they blog about
Book Notes: An ongoing chat about events, authors and news items about books, libraries, authors and everything literary from metro news reporters Barbara Livingston Nackman and Elizabeth Ganga. Barbara has been a reporter for The Journal News since 1997. She covers municipalities in Putnam County and keeps track of book events everywhere - and began her career writing about books and libraries. Lisa has been a reporter for The Journal News since 2000, after working at several newspapers in Connecticut. She has covered cities and town in sourthern and northern Westchester and is a big Jane Austen fan (though she reads everything from history to mysteries). Both reporters work out of the Mount Kisco bureau and frequently trade tidbits about books and events.


Novel Pursuits: Ken Valenti sheds light on his ongoing experiences as a novelist and poet. He talks about his trials and tribulations including musings about projects, readings, successes, and even insights into what he is reading and finds interesting. A reporter for The Journal News and its forerunners for more than 20 years, Ken now covers transportation. His first love has been writing fiction, but he's only begun pursuing that dream in recent years. He has been a reader and fiction editor for the journal Inkwell, and has published one short story in another fiction journal.


Seasoned Works: Randi Weiner dishes up an ongoing discussion about all books - old and savory. Though Randi keeps readers abreast of school issues most days and reads lots of children's and young adult books, current science fiction and murder mysteries, her overriding passion is older works generally written before 1940. She chats online about favorites and newly discovered treasures as well as book exhibits and talks related to the dusty, the musty and the marvelous illustrators of the past. She has been a reporter since 1976, with Gannett since 1989. And for the record, she says she has a personal library of more than 4,000 volumes.
