HOMETOWN HEROES DISPLAY

Come in and see our Hometown Heroes display (Medal of Honor Recipients from NY's 48th District) courtesy of Senator Patty Ritchie. This medal is given for "Conspicuous Gallantry and Intrepidity in Action at the Risk of Life Above and Beyond the Call of Duty." It is our nation's highest military decoration. Due to its rigorous selection criteria, there have been fewer than 3500 recipients - and of those, fully one in four are New Yorkers. Senator Ritchie is sponsoring legislation to honor and recognize the sacrifice of NY's Medal of Honor recipients by naming 800 of the state's 20,000 bridges and overpasses in their honor.

SUMMER READING PROGRAM AGAIN A BIG SUCCESS: "DIG INTO READING"

Over 2000 books were read by children in our six-week Summer Reading Program. Kicked off by Joshua the Juggler, hotdogs and drinks, parents and children kept us busy all summer. Cards were punched for free pizza and drink as well as prizes that could be won by reading. Many thanks to our volunteers who put in many busy hours during the months of July and August. Without these dedicated workers, the Summer Reading Program would not be possible. THANKS: Rachel Thormann who read to the little ones each Wednesday morning; Roxane Thormann who led the Teen Program with a special program once a week. As well as reading the Teens made blankets for animal shelters etc. Laura Weaver, APW elementary teacher who came in and helped decorate and prepare for the Summer Reading Program; Kim Laumann, first grade teacher in MD who used the Cricut to make wall decorations etc. for the program; our many volunteers who work EVERY single week at the library: Marge Hastings, Cherie Tietjen, Terry DeMassey, Tami Trumble, Alice Trumble, Kim Huntley, Cindy Arquette, and Sue Billington. Joanne Sheedy, WE MISS YOU!!! Our Annual Volunteer Dinner will be held in October to thank each and every one of these dedicated volunteers in some small way for their service. And a special thank you to our dedicated couple: Karen Dyer & Daniel Middleton who are going great guns in getting our Friends Group up and running.

SUCCESS!!!

We have a volunteer couple who moved here about six months ago, willing to begin a Friends Group. We are excited!

You can get all the necessary information on their new Website ... http://friendsofwilliamstownlibrary.org
