World Kindness Food (And More!) Drive
Through December

The Library will observe World Kindness Day with a food drive. Children and adults are asked to bring in non-perishable foods for the Area Interfaith Outreach Food Pantry in Rockland and help out local neighbors in need. The food drive will last through the end of December. We’ll also be collecting personal hygiene products for “One Less Worry.”  Please donate only un-opened and un-expired items.


Kno-Wal-Lin Auxilary Tree For Warmth
Through December 15th

Help us make the left side tree look like the right side tree! We are looking for hats, mittens, gloves, and scarves of all sizes, either handmade or store-bought, to be hung on our tree. These items will be distributed to local children and adults in need. Last year we had over 250 items. This year we are hoping for 275. You may bring items during normal library hours and hang them on the tree!

One Story, Three Version Film Series Part 2: In The Good Old Summertime

(1949. 103 minutes. Starring Judy Garland, Van Johnson, S.Z. "Cuddles" Sakall, Spring Byington, Clinton Sundberg, Buster Keaton, Marcia Van Dyke.)

It's turn of the century America, in the musical version of "The shop around the corner", when Andrew and Veronica first meet--by crashing into each other. They develop an instant and mutual dislike which intensifies when, later on, Andrew is forced to hire Veronica as a saleslady at Oberkugen's music store. What the two don't know is that while they may argue and fight constantly throughout the day, they are actually engaged in an innocent, romantic and completely anonymous relationship by night, through the post office. This is the second in a three part-series highlighting The Shop Around the Corner and its two subsequent remakes.
