Thanks to our excellent community readers, we've earned a celebratory end of summer ice cream party! We're only half way through summer and already Pawling has collectively read over 50,000 minutes (as of 8/1/22). To celebrate, readers of all ages are invited to join us for ice cream sandwiches, popsicles, and fun and games in the courtyard.

Drop in with your friends or family on August 27th, anytime from 2:00 - 4:00 PM, no registration required. We'll have yard games like lawn bowling and provide access to our outdoor play materials, including our water play tables and giant lawn blocks.

This event is intended for patrons who have participated in our Summer Reading Challenge, but all are welcome to join us and celebrate their hard work! For more information, please email Maureen or Neena or call us at 845-855-3444.

    09/30/2022 The 150-year-old house that belonged to the most famous illusionist Houdini is now a museum. You decide to go there and learn some of his greatest tricks and illusions. Walking around, your curiosity leads you to a secret room, one in which no one has set foot for over a century. As you enter the room, the door slams shut, leaving you locked inside while the walls start closing in slowly. On the table is Houdini’s testimony, which says: “You are the chosen one who managed to enter this secret room. Whoever finds a way to break out of it will have the privilege of becoming my heir.” The key, which unlocks the door, is hidden somewhere in the room. However, in order to find it, you must solve some challenges first. If you want to get out of this room, you need to get inside the mind of the greatest illusionist and start thinking like him. Can you escape and become the next Houdini? You have 60 minutes before the walls crush you, so you better hurry up—the clock is ticking! This escape game is for grades 5 & up. Registration is required.
