Artist Fran Traina taught a beginning watercolor class at our library on the 13th of November. It was a wonderful evening that we look forward to repeating. During the program participants learned a variety of painting techniques and then went on to create a landscape painting. It was a fun-filled learning experience for all. Additional painting classes will be scheduled in 2016.
Fran Traina’s work is on view at the Front Street Gallery in Patterson for their BLUE group exhibition. The exhibition was curated by Jeanette Rodriguez, who will present a jewelry wire wrapping workshop at our library on Friday, December 11th. A second jewelry workshop has been added for February 5th at 7:00 pm. Please check our online calendar for upcoming classes and events or give us a call at 845-855-3444. We love hearing from you!

On November 10th, food allergy advocate and author Colette Martin gave a presentation at the Pawling Library. Colette demonstrated to our audience how to prepare a variety of food allergy recipe substitutions, all of which tasted delicious! Thank goodness there are people like Colette Martin helping those with special dietary needs.
For those who have food allergies we highly recommend Colette Martin’s book, The Allergy-Free Pantry, available at our library.
Halloween night the Pawling Library was full of “tricks” as we hosted some very unusual guests! The families who came down to visit got a surprisingly scary “treat!”
On the evening of October 27th, health coach Nancy Osborn stood before a room filled with people. Her program, entitled The Sweet Truth, informed us about sugar. It is a substance contained in nearly all processed foods that Americans consume in high amounts and which can have a detrimental impact on our overall health. In her kind and caring way Nancy showed us the truth which many food industries would like to remain hidden. This was Nancy’s second presentation at our library. Her first, You and Your Health Style, took place in the spring. Nancy Osborn is a wonderfully engaging speaker. We look forward to her standing before yet another room filled with people, showing us how we can improve the quality of our lives.
A Memorial Reception will be held at the Library Annex on Sunday, November 8, at 1:00 to remember Shirley Shufer who recently passed away. Shirley was a long-time library supporter, Board member and volunteer. Please stop by to give your condolences to Jane Shufer, Shirley’s daughter, and share your memories of a woman who gave so much to our library and community.
The Friendship center celebrated Halloween on Thursday. We had cupcakes, strawberry shortcake, handmade chocolate pumpkins, and we enjoyed a game of Halloween Bingo with great prizes!
While you are out ‘trick or treating’ tonight, don’t forget to check out the haunting of the Pawling Library. We have many unusual visitors on Halloween and you just might catch a glimpse of some very spooky creatures. Stop in any time between 6 – 8 pm.
We’ll be waiting for you!
