Spring & Summer 2019 Newsletter

Stony Creek Free Library         Spring/Summer Newsletter 2019

As the snow melts and the sap is no longer running and as the trees are budding the library is gearing up for a busy and exciting spring and summer.

We had a blast with our winter Paint and Sips- some of which continue through April…if you haven’t attended there is still room for you for the April programs- of course with the weather so nice don’t be surprised if the classes are canceled due to “nice weather” (see our website or facebook page) and Casey has been busy with Art projects for the Children’s & Teen’s art Table.

Casey received a grant from Warren County Soil and Water to rebuild our planters and plant a traditional native 19 century garden. Ask Casey for info as we will plant as soon as the ground thaws!

Our collection of Books and DVD’s continues to grow and we carry some of the most current titles!

We hope to have our grand opening of the Artirondacks Gallery/ Studio/Shop this spring.  Stay tuned for more info!

May 18th at 11:00  – meet at the Rec. Field!
