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.

Pawling Wildcats Battle at Regional Competition!

Saturday, September 6th 2014 at 9:00am in the morning, 8 teens from Pawling made their way into the Main Building of the Columbia Green Community College for the 10th Annual Battle of the Books regional competition.  They sported safety orange shirts each personally designed and decorated.  It was hot and the team was ready to go!

Through nail biting tension, the team battled the other teams from Kent, Pleasant Valley/Lagrange, and Kingston! All rounds were very close and challenging.  After three rounds we were defeated and went on to enjoy the rest of the very hot Saturday, wishing luck to the rest of the teams that had survived to that point.  After an amazing summer of books, games, battles, and buzzers, we finished our 2014 season.

Congratulations to Brigid Barrick, Aidan Graham, Alyssa Harris, Avalon Lenenthal, Madeline Ragusa, Susannah Smith, Stephanie Sypher, and Jessica Tocci!  Amazing job and a wonderful summer!!  Can’t wait for next year!!
