On July 30, August 13, and August 27, the library will be closing at 7:30pm to accommodate the Opera Museum’s movie night.
Check this out. This family has been coming to the library for many years, and the children have been measuring themselves on our wall. I just received this email from their grandmother, Kathy Mazzella.
Hi Megan, Here are the photos I took of our granddaughters and nieces at the library a week or so ago. They all have been coming up to Lake George yearly since they were born. We started out at Diamond Village and were able to stay together at O’Connor’s. On the pillow you will find Haley and Lauryn English; Kylie and Morgan Masterson and the youngest, Jolene McKeown whose mother has the “Pfau” Lake George quilt. They look forward to seeing you again next year and Ted and I will probably see you when we visit again in early Aug. Kathy Mazzella
Lots going on at the Bolton Free Library!!
I just realized this week that the Bolton Free Library is recognized by Amazon as a not-for-profit, so when you are shopping on Amazon, just switch to Amazon Smile, choose the library as the organization you would like to support, and then spend some money.
In September, we will hold two trivia nights on September 10th and 24th. We plan to continue our game night until the Lakeside Restaurant starts their Monday Night Trivia again.
The first Kids’ Movie Night will be on Saturday, September 15th. I am not sure of the movie yet.
And the library book club will meet on Tuesday, September 18th at 7pm to discuss “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn”. There will be plenty of copies of the book for anyone interested in joining.
Annual Book Sale
The library’s annual book sale was a huge success. We raised about $1000 more this year. Over the years we had exhausted the places that would take the books that were left at the end of the sale and as a result, we did have to leave them at the landfill. We all really hated having to do that, but we were out of options. This year, our new trustee – Michelle Pollock – was in charge of the sale. And is so often the case with new blood, Michelle had some new ideas. We were so happy to her that she had found an organization that would take the books. The Queensbury Senior Citizens took the leftover books for their sale.
We are once again taking donations for next year’s sale. I have added a link to a list of what we can and cannot take. Please abide by those rules, so we do not have to throw any more books away.
