Please Welcome Miss Christy and our Children’s Fall Programs

5-7-2Please join me in welcoming the newest addition to the Pawling Library’s all-star team, Miss Christy. Miss Christy will be filling in for Miss Karen while she recovers from her eye surgery, and she’s put together a lot of great programs for the kids of Pawling including a Preschool Story Hour and some cool Book Clubs for School Age Kids.

Miss Christy has worked in the library on the Military Base at West Point, and currently works with the boys in the library at the Trinity-Pawling School. I think her love for children’s literature will make her a great addition to our library.
Lottery Registration for our Fall Programs will begin Monday, September 15th. You can pick up a registration form at the Circulation Desk or you can print one out here: Childrens Fall 2014 Program Registration Form

When you return your registration form, you’ll pull a number, which will determine your ranking for Registration. All Pawling residents will be enrolled in our programs first, and then we will fill any leftover spaces in our programs with non-residents.
