Latest Post to "Boone Appetit," our Food Blog

Charlie Boone, our resident food blogger, takes family on a culinary adventure to a Filipino restaurant in Spring Valley, NY that he's been meaning to try for years.

Charlie is the "full Monty" as a foodie -- he loves to bake and cook, loves restaurants and is curious about new, untried things.

Read his post at the link below, but take some time to scroll down to read more of his ruminations on edibles and potables.

To Kill a Mockingbird | Book, Blockbuster, Broadway

The Friends of the Blauvelt Free Library are sponsoring a 3-part event culminating with a trip to a new, critically-acclaimed Aaron Sorkin adaptation starring Jeff Daniels as Atticus Finch.

A book discussion of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Harper Lee kicks off the series, followed by a showing of the 1962 classic film, starring Gregory Peck (Best Actor Award), and a fascinating PBS documentary by filmmaker Mary McDonagh Murphy.

PBS Documentary Film | Wednesday, July 17  at 7pm
Book Discussion | Wednesday, July 24 at 6:30pm
Film Viewing | Wednesday, August 14 at 6:30pm
Broadway Play | Saturday, September 21 at 12pm

Attendance at all three events is not mandatory, but there's something to be said for total immersion!

Registration is required. Please call Barry at 845 359-2811 to register.


Fresh Produce? We Got It!

The Blauvelt Free Library is now available as a pick-up spot for fresh produce and artisanal foods from small local farms. We've partnered with FIELD GOODS -- a food distributor representing Hudson Valley farmers -- to bring you the freshest vegetables and fruit from the region. Once you register with Field Goods online, you will be able to pick up your weekly bag (prices start at $16 for individuals and $32 for families) from the front vestibule of the library on Thursdays any time between 4:30 and 9pm. Support local agribusiness and feed yourself and your family in style. Click here to get started: FIELD GOODS
