Helping Others

lieutenantsThere are many different ways people are aided through the Pawling Library. Here are two examples:

On Tuesday, October 20th, First Lieutenant Brett M. White and First Lieutenant Tom Frost, of the New York State National Guard, were co-presenters for a Citizen Preparedness Training Program. Participants were instructed on how they can keep themselves safe in both natural and man-made disasters. At the programs end, each person received a training certificate. First Lieutenant White shared with us, shortly before the program began, that he served in Afghanistan. We are grateful to these men for helping our library and especially our country, and proud we are of them as well.

Basic Computer ClassOver the years our library has held both morning and afternoon computer classes. All these classes are free to the public. On Wednesday, October 21st was our first evening computer workshop. This was a very special program, for it was conducted by a kind individual who wanted to give back to the Pawling community she is part of. We thank our presenter Jennifer Driscoll for volunteering and sharing her expertise to create this beginners computer workshop. Another class by Ms. Driscoll will be scheduled for early 2016.

Please join us in the coming new year. Come grow with us. As always, we look forward to seeing and helping you.
