When you reread a classic you do not see more in the book than you did before; you see more in you than was there before. ♦ Clifton Fadiman

The Alternative Medicine Chest

The library welcomes Lori Gordon, health guru at Organica, an all natural foods and supplements store in nearby Northvale, NJ, on Tuesday, October 15 at 7 pm (originally posted as Thursday). Lori will give participants the inside scoop on using a wide array of vitamins, supplements, tinctures, teas, salves and homeopathics to treat common, everyday ailments. She will also offer advice on what to take to maintain a healthy immune system. Your questions will be welcomed.

Be sure to call us to reserve a spot, as space is limited.

Defensive Driving Course Offered on Saturday 9/28

Sign up now for this Saturday's Defensive Driving Course, conducted through American Safety, Inc. by Art Aldrich (publisher of Our Town News). Completion of the 6-hour course can result in discounts of up to 10% on auto insurance (your carrier will determine the exact amount after you send them the certificate you receive by mail about two weeks after completing the course). The class will run from 10 am to 4 pm in the library's Community Room. Cost is $30, payable by cash or check, written to Arthur Aldrich (bring it with you - the library is not collecting payment). The building does not open until 11 am on Saturdays, so the attendees should go around back to the rear of the building where you can enter the Community Room directly. Bring along some lunch - the library will have coffee and tea. Call us at 845 359-2811 to register.

Latest Post to "Boone Appetit," our Food Blog

Charlie Boone, our resident food blogger, takes his 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.
