The Pawling Library is Celebrating its Centennial.

For this program we are not only commemorating our library’s anniversary but bringing people together through their passion for great literary works.

We have selected four classic novels, one for each season, that were popular in the 1920s when our library first came into being.

Our presenter, Stephanie Rogers, will be reading an excerpt from each novel and then lead a Q & A for our audience. Stephanie Rogers is the author of The Horse I Belong To: How a Misused and Almost Forgotten Grade Mare Showed Me the Way.

The Pawling Library is proud to be partnering with our neighbors Pawling Recreation, the Grand: Rehabilitation & Nursing, the Pawling Resource Center & the Book Cove.

To participate in this program, order a copy of The Mysterious Affair at Styles through our library. You can also support our partner, the Book Cove, by purchasing this classic novel from our favorite book store. The Mysterious Affair at Styles was written by Agatha Christie and published in 1920.

Thank you for growing with us throughout the years.
