Looking Ahead to Summer

Mark your calendars for Sunday, June 22 @ 3 p.m.

Zucc_3_high

The Zucchini Brothers will kick-off the summer reading program, Fizz, Boom, Read with a “family” event to be held at Burton Hall.  There is no fee and all are welcome.

Often called “The Beatles of Kids’ Music,” this band of brothers, Jack on guitar, Steve on keyboards, Sam on drums (all of whom sing) offers up a musical stir-fry of styles.  You never know what these zany guys will do.  But one thing’s for sure, once you’ve seen ‘em – you won’t forget ‘em! 

In addition to producing their own radio show, the Zucchini brothers make numerous television appearances and their CDs are played throughout the world.  Winners of the NAPPA Gold Award and Parent’s Choice Gold Award, they have received critical acclaim for their albums.

“Zucchini” music bridges the musical gap between kids and adults, appealing to people of all ages.

sr2010a_rgbThis program is supported, in part, by funds from the NYS Library’s Family Literacy Library Services grant program and by the Friends of Easton Library.

Library Responds to Community Needs

Library Graphic

 

The public survey and community assessment workshops conducted by the library in 2013 have provided impetus for the board and staff to move forward with change and long-range planning.  Four areas of need identified through these activities are Connect to the Online World: public internet access, Satisfy Curiosity: lifelong learning, Visit a Comfortable Space: physical and virtual spaces, and Stimulate Imagination: reading, viewing and listening for pleasure.  With these goals in mind, the library hours have already changed and increased to be more accessible to the public, plans are in motion to increase programming for all ages, and more computers will become available.

Easton Suffragists

In the fall of 2009 writer and historian, Teri Gay launched her book Strength Without Compromise: Womanly Influence and Political Identity in Turn-of-the-Twentieth Century Rural Upstate New York.  The Political Equality Club of Easton is highlighted and the work of its two most ardent leaders, Lucy Allen and Chloe Sisson, showcases the Easton club members commitment to “votes for women.”

New York Archives magazine, in its Fall 2011 issue, also features the women of the Easton P.E.C. and the unique approch taken by those rural women in seeking to gain the vote.  Stop by the library to borrow this magazine and read The Suffragists of Easton also written by Teri Gay.

"Strength Without Compromise" is part of the Easton Library collection and is available for loan.  Signed copies are available for purchase also at the library.
