    This is the second session in this three-part series: “Teamwork and Fieldwork”. We head off onto the trails.

    The Pawling Library, Pawling Recreation, the NY/NJ Trail Conference, and Cornell Cooperative Extension are teaming up with local naturalists to offer a series of free, nature based, hands-on immersive experiences for youth (middle school, HS, college, and adults) at Lakeside Park.

    This initiative will center around opportunities to notice invasive species in the natural environment and the affects they have on existing, native plants. Young people will gain a better understanding of their natural world, enhancing their observation skills and triggering applicable world-to-self connections.

    The third and final session will be held on Saturday, May 21st. Registration is required: https://pawlingny.myrec.com/info/activities/program_details.aspx?ProgramID=30194

    Garden beauty can come in small packages!

    Not everyone has a big yard or acres of land for gardens.

    But you can create beauty in a roadside bed, on a narrow strip by your walkway, or in containers on your deck or patio.

    It just takes planning, wise plant choices, and attention to 5 Key Principles… which can enhance the design of ANY size garden!

    As all parents know, managing children is not an easy thing to do. The good news is that scientists and researchers have discovered strategies and information that can help manage and support the behavior of children. Teachers often attend professional development sessions to learn about these strategies and, now, the Pawling Free Library is offering parents the opportunity to learn how they can use many of these strategies at home to support positive behavior. Join presenter Ruairi Gribbon for this series of four 1-hour, in-person sessions starting 4/26 at 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM in the Library Annex.

    4/26- Understanding the Science of Behavior

    5/3- Setting Expectations and Teaching Wanted Behaviors

    5/10- Positive Reinforcement, Effective Error Correction and Other Behavior Strategies

    5/17- Intensive Support and Getting Help from Others

    Ruairi Gribbon is the Director of the Mid-Hudson Regional Partnership Center which supports schools in the Mid-Hudson Region of New York through the goal of improving positive outcomes for students with disabilities. He is also a part-time faculty member with Marist College’s School of Social and Behavioral Sciences. Ruairi has three children of his own and has been presenting information related to student/child behavior to parents and teachers for ten years. He has previously worked as classroom teacher, instructional math coach, school building leader, behavior specialist, and central office administrator.

    Coloring is more than being creative, it’s a very relaxing activity that has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety.

    Each week we’ll be coloring a new mandala design, while also enjoying a good round of conversation.

    You don’t have to have a degree in art to participate…just some paper and color pencils.

    Please join us. Relax and connect with like-minded people, and add a burst of color to your day!

    The book club will be discussing Beloved, by Toni Morrison.

     

    Are you interested in reading and discussing novels, plays, and poems by women? Then this is your Book Club! This is a fun opportunity to indulge in some great works by women writers.

    We will begin each discussion with a little background history and tidbits on each female writer. I’ll ask a few questions to get us started and then it’s an open forum. My hope is that together we gain a little more insight into these books (and perhaps the authors as well).

    Some of these books you may know well. Some may be books you always meant to read and never got around to! It does not matter how expert you are with the works or the authors. If you are passionate about discussing books and would like to build up your repertoire of works by women, this might be the perfect place to start. To quote Mary Shelley: “The beginning is always today.”

     

    Reading List:

    May: Toni Morrison “Beloved” 1987
    June: Wendy Wasserstein “The Sisters Rosensweig” Play 1992
    July: Harper Lee “To Kill a Mockingbird” 1960 and “Go Set a Watchman!” 2015
    August: Doris Kearns Goodwin “Wait Till Next Year” 1997
