With a new name for its fourth year, the Pawling Living Narrative Project is a joint venture between the Pawling School District and the Pawling Library. It is an opportunity for members of the community to connect with educators and each other to share their stories. The event will take place on Tuesday February 18th, 1-3 PM. This year we will center the entire program around the idea of social and emotional well-being. Possible topics include life changing experiences, favorite past times or other interests, and of course health and wellness.

Evelina has been the smiling face behind the circulation desk., and the” go to” person at the library with any issues regarding patron accounts for the last ten years… and she has loved being of service to the community. She has visited homebound patrons, the Friendship Center, and the Grand on a regular basis in order to bring library services to those who could not otherwise take advantage of them. She has loved bringing joy to these patrons through her visits, and we have been so happy to have her as part of the library family. Evelina has lived in Pawling for the last sixteen years. Now she and her husband Victor will be retiring to South Carolina. We wish them the best on their new adventure! We will be saying good-by to Evelina with some pastries and coffee at the library on April 27th at 10 am. We invite you to stop in to wish her a sweet farewell!
