How To Welcome the New Year

  A couple of years ago I was at a New Year's dinner where we went around the table and shared our Resolutions. I had recently read Bowling Alone, a book with data showing that over the past few decades we have stopped joining PTA's, bowling leagues, even having friends over for dinner. My New Year's Resolution was to volunteer for something. I wanted to feel like I was contributing something to my community. I joined the Friends of the Library, a group of warm, friendly, intelligent people. Consider making it your Resolution as well!

Stone Soup

  This year at our Stone Soup celebration, we read Stone Soup by Ann McGovern.  "Fancy that".  We also read Stone Soup by Jon J. Muth and ate stone soup and cornbread, prepared by Mr Chris and Miss Annie.
Come join us Thursdays from 10-11am.

  Literature comes alive at the Rosendale Library!!
