Walking in this World: Artist Cluster for Women
a new women’s group meeting at the Library

Walking in this World is a “creativity recovery” support group for women based on the principles of Julia Cameron in her book, The Artist’s Way, the seminal book on the subject of creativity and an international bestseller which millions of readers have found to be an invaluable guide to living the artist’s life.


The group is open to all women whether they are professional artists or just creative in their spare time. Our ladies are involved in a wide range of artistic medium from photography, music, writing and painting to sewing, crafting and cooking.

The group will meet the second Saturday of each month  from 10am to Noon in the Teen Room. We hope to see you there!

For more information please call 845-481-8224.

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.

For more information, visit their website:  Information is also available in the Library.
