If you do visit, please don’t forget to leave us a message in our tracking book. And if you come across any damage or missing pages, please contact the library at 845-855-3444 or email@example.com to let us know! Thank you to Town of Pawling Recreation Department and the Mid-Hudson Chapter of the Adirondack Mountain Club for partnering with us on this project. Please note that this StoryWalk will be on display until 12/17/21. The program will return with a new story in 2022! The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.

For the second week of our Imagine Your Story Summer Reading Program, we let Pawling vote for what dance move our staff should try and learn… and then perform! The winner…Flossing!

We’re two weeks in to our all ages Read-a-Thon, and great progress has been made! Patrons of all ages have contributed time to reach a collective 8,034 minutes (or 133.9 hours) read, and we’re well on our way to reaching 20,000 minutes by June 1st. However, we can’t do it without you! Are you reading eBooks, listening to audiobooks, or reading picture books with your family? No matter how you’re reading, you can contribute your effort to our community Read-a-Thon, unlock online content, and win prizes. Help us prove that staying home doesn’t mean reading and learning stops, no matter your age! It’s painless and quick to log your time.
