Project Hamlet on the Hudson – Town of Esopus Library
Project Mirrors and Windows
“With a ‘mirror’ book and ‘window’ book in hand, reading proficiency is at the front door.”
Project Mirrors and Windows is a newly minted organization whose leading objective is to promote child literacy by providing high quality multicultural children’s books to all children. Their goal is to increase the volume of “mirror” and “window” books upon the shelves of every public, school, and classroom library. The Town of Esopus Library benefits directly from this project by receiving free multicultural books for our children’s collection.
The Project is looking for and welcomes all support from library patrons. You can help in the following ways:
- Spread the word about multicultural literature; be a child literacy advocate.
- Volunteer for their current project; your involvement will make a significant difference.
- Make a donation; help them reach their book purchasing goal.

Teen and Mother Co-Authors a Hit!
On Friday, July 18th we enjoyed hearing from Teen Author Bethanie Borst, and Amie Borst, her mother and Co-author of the new, nationally acclaimed “Cinderskella”. They tolds us how they began writing books together, and gave many hints about the process. We laughed through the telling of their mistakes and successes. It was an inspiration to those present- especiallly to aspiring young authors! The next book in their series, “Little Dead Riding Hood”, is currently in publication. Kids and Teens, visit Amie’s website for more book-writing guidance and inspiration! Keep an eye out for more author talks in our Canal Street Author Series!
