Newsletter      July 2020

The Mid-Hudson Library System procedure for holds is up and running again so we will no longer be accepting requests for items via email. If you are not familiar with this system see below.
Please call the Library 10-20 minutes before you arrive, and again when you get to the parking lot. This will enable us to have your materials ready when you get here, and a staff person will bring your materials out to a table by the Library entrance.
Please wear a mask and observe social distancing guidelines when you pick up your materials.

Please note that the building itself is not open.   
Please return your items in the new dropbox by the parking lot. Materials from that box will be quarantined for 72 hours before we recirculate them.   
A reminder that all books, DVDs and audiobooks will be quarantined for 3 days before being checked in. If you receive a late notice and you know you've returned your materials please disregard it. No fines are being collected at this time. 
Wireless Internet access is available in the yard. Please remember to social distance if you are using the Library grounds.
Mystery Lovers Book Group
Wednesday July 15th at 10am
We will meet in the Library yard.
We will sit apart and wear masks.
(Rain date - Thursday July 16th at 10am.)

We will discuss The Unquiet Dead by Ausma Zehanat Khan. In Toronto, Det. Esa Khattak and Sgt. Rachel Getty work for the community policing section and are called in when there may be a sensitive aspect to a case. Investigating the supposedly accidental death of Christopher Drayton, the two officers soon uncover details that lead them to believe the man may have actually been a Bosnian war criminal involved with the Srebrenica massacre of 1995. With a large Bosnian refugee community in Toronto, the case is especially touchy. Mysterious, threatening letters that appeared on the victim's doorstep and the presence of a gold-digging fiancée add to the suspicion. As Khattak and Getty interview imams and neighbors and sort out what justice really means, they are forced to navigate the lingering effects of a horrible conflict and their own broken lives. 

A History Reading Club
Zoom Meeting Wednesday, August 26 at 7pm

We are reading two books by Marie Arana: Silver, Sword and Stone: Three Crucibles in the Latin American Story and Bolívar: American Liberator Feel free to "attend" this virtual meeting whether you finish both books or not. 

Silver, Sword and Stone tells the timely and timeless stories of three contemporary Latin Americans whose lives represent three driving forces that have shaped the character of the region: exploitation (silver), violence (sword), and religion (stone).  

Bolívar is the epic story of the famous South American general and statesman Simón Bolívar. He freed six countries from Spanish rule and is still the most revered figure in South America today.

Positive Reflections of Older Adults in Movies
It's not so easy to find movies about characters in the 60-plus age category, let alone ones that depict older adults in a positive light. Fortunately, some are available for free viewing on Kanopy and Hoopla attesting that seniors can indeed lead interesting and meaningful lives. From The Seattle Public Library. More
