It’s Summertime, and the livin’ is easy here at the little library on the riverbank. Summer Reading Club sign-ups have started and we are halfway through page 3 already! Just as last year all ages can sign up. Pre-readers must attend 3 story times (check the events calendar for dates and times); school kids must read 5 books and play our readers trivia dice game (as always, extra books read are encouraged – but the trivia dice game is not needed after the first 5 books.) Adults must read at least 5 books, one of which should be non-fiction, and keep your own list. Everyone who finishes is invited to our wrap-up party on August 8 at 11am for refreshments, certificates, and goodies.
Bring your pre-school child to our Story Time this summer. Enjoy books, fingerplays, and activities with Michael Hadfield. Join us on Monday evenings at 7pm and Friday mornings at 10:30. There will be no story time on Monday Jun 29.
The Corinth Free Library was presented with the 2008 Library Program of the Year Award for Living on the Edge by the Southern Adirondack Library System at its 51st Annual Meeting on May 18, 2009.
The library hosted a year-long series of ambitious programs called “Living on the Edge.” The logo and tagline, Life…in the foothills…on the banks of the Hudson…on the verge of the forest…near the turning point of history…set the theme for library programs in 2008. The programs highlighted the advantages of living in Corinth. Funding for the project came from a variety of resources, including Senator Farley, Library Services and Technology Act funds, SALS and the Friends of the Corinth Library. The programs included an art instruction workshop for children, an adult historical program, intergenerational concerts, a ventriloquist, a living history program, and a program on landscape archaeology. Due to the success of “Living on the Edge,” the library will continue to provide year long theme based quality programs for all the residents of the community.
