Thanks to everyone who’s donated already!
The financial assistance from you and your neighbors helps us bring the best library services to everyone in Pawling. Our Annual Appeal is off to a great start, and I just wanted to reach out and remind you that it’s not too late to donate!
Last year, our patrons checked out over 60,000 books, DVD’s, audiobooks, and eBooks from our library. The attendance at our programs — which cover everything from early literacy for infants to memoir writing for adults — reached almost 16,000.
To help us continue our mission and bring lifelong learning and literacy to everyone in Pawling, Holmes, and Whaley Lake, please donate online or mail this card with your contribution to the library today.

Thanks to Daisy Troops 10019 and 10291, Isabelle Palmer, American Girl’s newest doll, is all packed and ready to come and visit at your home. The Daisy’s in both troops worked together to purchase Isabelle and donate her to the library so all of the girls in our community would have a chance to take her home. You can read more about this generous project here, but in the meantime, all of our American Girl Dolls are waiting for a chance to visit at your home!
Sunday, November 23rd the library was filled with Daisy’s! The girls of Daisy Troops 10019 & 10291 came to the library with a surprise for the whole community. The girls had decided to purchase Isabelle, American Girl’s newest doll, and donate it to the Pawling Library. Daisy Troop 10019 Scout Leader Nicol Furlong told us, “The girls went to New York City on Metro-North November 11th with only one thing in mind…buying a doll to give to the library! They never asked for anything for themselves. They knew why they were there and that was all they had in mind.” The girls had lunch and received a tour of the American Girl store and of course, they purchased their gift to bring back to Pawling.
Remember today is the last day of our

Girl Scout Brownie Troop 10017 is filled with girls on a mission. They took a look around the community to see if there was something they could do to improve their world.

Well, they have been busy in both places volunteering their time and talents to help make the Pawling Community a little brighter. Continue reading
