Such excitement here in Libraryland! We have just taken delivery of a large, wooden quilt square that will in the very near future take up residence in front of the library. This has been a collaborative project between Sue and Jim Race, OESJ art students under the direction of Mrs. Thibodeau, and myself. The block, in shades of blue, cream and red, features a log cabin design. In a word? It is stunning! The block will become part of the Fulton Montgomery Quilt Barn Trail. http://www.fmquiltbarntrail.com/

The Reaney Library will be partnering with the Mohawk Valley Library System and miSci, the Museum of Innovation and Science, in offering a series of science programs for two age groups k-2 and 3-6. The programs are designed to engage children and their families in learning about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). In addition, the Dudley Observatory, housed at miSci, will deliver astronomy content by using Starlab, a portable planetarium. Further details and dates will be released over the summer. The programs are funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services awarded to miSci in cooperation with the Mohawk Valley Library System and will allow us to provide similar workshops in 2016 and 2017. What a great opportunity for our children! We here in Libraryland are so excited to be a part of this.
