Hello Third Graders!

I need to give a big shout out to this morning’s third grade visitors accompanied by Miss McNulty, Mrs. Null and Mrs. Jones.  The children were a little damp around the edges from their walk down.  We talked about super heroes and super powers.  Not everyone has x-ray vision, razor sharp claws or webs shooting from their wrists.  However, we all do have the ability for the greatest super power of all; the ability to read.  As I like to say; If you can’t read, you can’t BE. 

We talked about how important reading is in every aspect of life from getting a driver’s permit to using it in a future career.  One little boy told me he wanted to be a professional chef and we decided that he would be reading lots of cookbooks and recipes. Two girls noted they want to be veterinarians so of course, there would be much scientific reading to be done.  There were even a couple of would-be professional baseball players.  I teased one of my pals that he would have to read the rules of baseball and grow a beard like his beloved Red Sox.  Without exception, they were well behaved, engaging and full of enthusiasm.   It was a delight having them at the library.

Everyone was sent home with a library card application.  So, dear parents, the ball is now in your court.  See that your child has a library card and make visiting the library a part of your family routine.   Remember, we are all capable of developing and bringing to full use the super power of reading.  Grow it in your children, you will not be sorry.

The Reaney Library is open M, T, W and F 9:30 AM – 5 PM, Monday and Friday evenings 6:30 – 8:30 PM and Saturday 9:30 AM – noon.

Got Books?

Got books? YES!
Of course, the library has books but did you know in addition to our own collection as a card holder you have access to materials from other libraries? Reaney Library is a member of the Mohawk Valley Library System. MVLS is a collaborative of the fourteen public libraries in a four county area; Schenectady , Fulton , Montgomery and Schoharie counties. In addition, MVLS has a mutual agreement with the Southern Adirondack Library System (SALS) for many shared services; interlibrary loan being among them. SALS is comprised of thirty four public libraries in Hamilton , Saratoga , Warren and Washington counties. 
If you step up to the desk here at 19 Kingsbury Avenue and request a specific title and we don’t have it the chances are good that we might be able to secure a copy from one of our colleague libraries in the MVLS/SALS system. We simply put in the request and wait for an available copy to be sent via a courier service. The courier delivers to our library Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Once the material arrives it gets checked out to the patron per usual. While local interlibrary loan ( ILL ) is free, we are dependent on the lending policies of the member libraries. For example, a brand new piece of fiction may be available only to the card holders of a specific library. Other libraries might choose not to make their DVD collections available at large. In our case, we don’t interlibrary loan our local history and genealogy collection due to the fragility and irreplaceable-ness of some of the materials. For the most part though, interlibrary loan is a great way to get something your local library might not have. Requests may be made at the library or, as long as you have a valid library card, from your home computer. For people doing serious, academic research; we also have access to the state library and beyond. Sometimes, there are fees attendant to those requests; particularly items coming from out of state.
In addition to individual requests, we here at MRML use ILL very heavily for a couple of additional purposes. The library facilitates two very active book clubs. We use ILL to secure enough copies for our membership. Once a month might see me ordering fifteen copies of this or twelve copies of that to distribute to our readers. It is a matter of course that we order in regular print, large type and audio books to meet the needs of our participants. 
A second use of ILL is in service to the school district. Most recently, we have ordered multiple copies of books, both fiction and non-fiction, to support the common core curriculum in the fourth and fifth grades. The picture below shows some of the books that we borrowed on behalf of the fourth grade for the month of September. We ordered a total of forty five books; nine copies of five titles, to be used in Mrs. Battisti’s and Mrs. Eggleston’s classes. These copies came from throughout the MVLS/SALS system; drawn from the collections of the public libraries in an eight county area. A second request resulted in seventy two books being loaned to the fourth and fifth grades for the month of October. 

Any teachers needing multiple copies for their classroom are invited to call the library at 518.568.7822 and speak with Dawn.

THe Erie Canal & the West Shore Railroad

Place’s Grocery and Saloon, the Erie Canal and the West Shore Railroad

Recently, a couple of photos were posted to Facebook that we thought warranted further research and explanation.  This post is an attempt to clarify and provide more information as well as sources for additional study. 

The first picture below gives an excellent view of the West Shore depot and immediate area.  The right side of the photo shows the West Shore freight house and to the left is the backside of the depot.  Immediately in front of the buildings are the Erie Canal and towpath.  In the middle is the Mohawk River with the old covered bridge to the left and the New York Central Railroad round house on the opposite shore. 

GinThe line ran from NJ to Buffalo, NY first as the West Shore and Buffalo Railroad, then as the NY Central, Penn Central and CONRAIL’s West Shore.

The second image is a lovely watercolor painted circa 1907 by Leila Ogden Burgin, sister of Mrs. George C. Butler, St. Johnsville.  The watercolor shows the grain elevator, grocery story and saloon owned by G V Place and located on the old Erie Canal opposite St. Johnsville, west of the West Shore train depot.   Also shown are photographs from the library collection depicting Place’s with a docked Erie Canal boat. From the St. Johnsville Enterprise and News, October 11, 1922, when the building was destroyed: 

Fire Destroys Old Landmark; Ancient Warehouse and Canal Terminal Gone. Place Building Near West Shore Burns Quickly, was Built in 1830.  The empty warehouse near the West Shore depot was consumed by fire on Thursday evening.  It was a large two story wing extending along the deserted Erie Canal on the south side of the river.  In the building was some property placed there for storage and a quantity of hay.  Originally it was constructed by the Cox family and was designed as a warehouse and terminal for canal shipping.  The flames were especially fierce, and with a slight wind blowing from the west, burning embers were scattered over nearby residences, and at one time threatened the West Shore station, fully 200 feet away.”  

As an aside, 10 year old Nellie Place was killed Christmas Eve, 1897 at the New York Central Railroad crossing.  A Milo Nellis scrapbook yielded this clipping;

“Nellie Place, who met with an untimely death at the Central crossing at this station last Friday night, was an exceptionally bright and pleasant little one.  She was the pride of her parents and all her friends.  Taking prominent part in the Christmas cantata here she carried her part through in a manner which would have done credit to many an older one, and to thus be taken words hardly be expressed as to the sorrow which this sad calamity brings, not only to the bereaved family but to a large circle of sympathizing friends.”  Forever young Nellie Place rests in the St. Johnsville Cemetery.

Writers' Group Resuming!

The Reaney Writers’ group is returning after a five year hiatus. The group will be facilitated by area resident Ali MacDonald. Scheduled for the 3rd Saturday of each month, the Reaney Writers will meet at the St. Johnsville Community House, 16 Washington Street. Their first meeting is September 21 at 10 AM.

Most recently, she was awarded first prize for a short story at the Utica Writers’ Club. She is also the author of a novel, Dancing With the King at Conyers.
Reaney Writers are funded in part by Poets and Writers, Inc. with public funds from the NYS Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the NYS Legislature.
Anyone desiring further information is invited to contact library director Dawn Lamphere at 518-568-7822 or via email to
All are welcome to the table.

Take Me Out To The Ball Game...........

With baseball at the park, at the little league field, in Little Falls with the Diamond Dawgs and in Amsterdam with the Mohawks, St. Johnsville and the Mohawk Valley have long been enthusiastic about the boys of summer.   My mom adored baseball, long championing the Mets, Reggie Jackson and Pete Rose; and just what are they thinking of keeping him out of the Hall of Fame?!?!?!?  With the exception of my brother, the rest of the family shook our heads at this interest of hers.  Non-baseball person that I am I was a little hesitant to read John Grisham’s novel, Calico Joe for our June book discussion.  In a nut shell, I loved the story and would like to recommend it for your summer reading pleasure.
Set in 1973, Calico Joe speaks to the excitement and love of the game; long before it became overloaded with gazillion dollar players and the whispers of rampant steroid use.    Anyone who enjoys and follows baseball will find pleasure in this simple novel.  John Grisham is not only a fine writer but a good storyteller and Calico Joe is proof of that.

***A surprising and moving novel of fathers and sons, forgiveness and redemption, set in the world of Major League Baseball…Whatever happened to Calico Joe?

It began quietly enough with a pulled hamstring. The first baseman for the Cubs AAA affiliate in Wichita went down as he rounded third and headed for home. The next day, Jim Hickman, the first baseman for the Cubs, injured his back. The team suddenly needed someone to play first, so they reached down to their AA club in Midland, Texas, and called up a twenty-one-year-old named Joe Castle. He was the hottest player in AA and creating a buzz.

In the summer of 1973 Joe Castle was the boy wonder of baseball, the greatest rookie anyone had ever seen. The kid from Calico Rock, Arkansas dazzled Cub fans as he hit home run after home run, politely tipping his hat to the crowd as he shattered all rookie records.

Calico Joe quickly became the idol of every baseball fan in America, including Paul Tracey, the young son of a hard-partying and hard-throwing Mets pitcher. On the day that Warren Tracey finally faced Calico Joe, Paul was in the stands, rooting for his idol but also for his Dad. Then Warren threw a fastball that would change their lives forever…

Hello Holly!

Hello Holly!


Holly Brundage, a driver with Oppenheim-Ephratah School, started a plethora of visitors over the last several weeks.  Holly transported 23 OE pre-k students along with their teacher Ms Sprouse and staff for a library visit.  The children learned about taking care of books and how to get a library card.  Due to inclement weather, they then enjoyed their brown bag lunches at the library before heading off under clearer skies to the park and finishing with ice cream at Park Side.  Other students visiting included the kindergarten, second and fourth grade classes from DH Robbins.
Following the Memorial Day parade and service the library was open to visitors.  Between 50 and 60 people took advantage of the holiday opening to check out the museum.
In addition, we also welcomed 10 members and staff from the Lexington Center Senior Day-Hab program, 8 members of the General Nicholas Herkimer Chapter of the DAR as well as 27 visitors from the Hudson Valley Community College Out and About program.  Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the recently revamped museum collections. 

Floats & Boats!

Floats and Boats
The library board of trustees will once again be dipping ice cream at the marina.  On Monday, July 8 as Linda Lee and the Fox Creek Band play in the gazebo root beer floats and brownie boats will be available.  As in past years, our ice cream has been generously donated by Stewarts.  We hope you will stop by for some toe tapping music and yummy ice cream while enjoying the beauty of the marina and canal.  This is the first in a series of annual summer concerts.  The music starts at 6:30 PM. 

The Great Outdoors!!!

In the great out of doors!
The library park has been graced by new benches.  Generously donated by Ralph Colorito and Joe Mastracco the benches are in memory of their loved ones.  We would like to give a big thanks to members of American Legion Post #168 for installing them.  Heading up the team was Joe Peruzzi capably assisted by Ron Weidenmayer, Alan Weaver, Mike Bartlett, Tony Susi, Dan Matis, Dave Miosek and Jim Race. Stop by and try them out.  They are as comfortable as they are nice looking.
Every year we get asked, “Just what is that beautiful tree in front with the white flowers?”   It’s a catalpa.  In June it is eye-catching with thousands of fragrant blossoms.  Unfortunately for our hardworking groundskeeper, Patrick, the blooms do not stay on the tree.  The flowers drift down and pile up on the sidewalk like snow; beautiful but messy.  No sooner does he get them cleaned up when the sidewalk is covered again.  With wonderful, broad leaves the tree does provide excellent shade which helps deter some of the summer heat soaking into the library.  You will also notice its’ distinctive bean pods, sometimes used as poking sticks by the kids. The pods are long and, when they dry up, tough, making them somewhat difficult to rake or pick up with the lawn mower.  Come late fall and a hard frost, all the leaves seem to drop at once making for an ankle deep carpet; perfect for leaf kicking.

Coming Soon!

I am putting together a list of great summer reads for both adult and children.  I hope you'll come by, and as we like to say here in libraryland, check them out!

Happy Mother's Day

Mother’s Day, 2007



This is my mother, so full of wisdom and grace as all true mothers are.  Our house was filled with much laughter and even more love.  Although she was taken from us 7 years ago everyday that I wake up I feel her presence and calming spirit near me.  No matter how old we become, no matter what successes and failures come our way, there is always, always the constant reassurance that nobody has ever loved us quite like our mothers.  Indulge me as I share my beautiful mother with you and hopefully stir your hearts in fond remembrance of your own mothers.


Dear Mom,


            Do you remember the time Pam, Billie Sue and I were in our bedrooms just messing around when David did something really wicked downstairs?  We three all leaned over the railing when we heard his running steps and your equally quick walk that told us you were in hot pursuit.  Up the stairs he bounded with you on his trail, hairbrush in your hand.  Run, David, Run” we all shouted.  “We’ll save you!”  At that point, you stopped on the stairs gave us all a look of total disgust and told us we would be sorry when HE, started getting into OUR stuff. With back ramrod straight and lips pursed, you went back downstairs as David grinned a relieved victory and we girls giggled liked loons.  It wasn’t too long after that we realized you were right, as you frequently proved through the years, and that pesky, rat brother of ours was into all of our secret treasures. 

My mom had a tradition, which I know many families share.  When it was your birthday you got to pick your favorite meal and extra special cake and Mom would work her kitchen magic.  It did not matter how elaborate or time consuming the dish might be, my Mom always came through. Cheesecake was a favorite of my sister Pam’s and many a birthday we enjoyed its rich, creamy texture made from the heavenly recipe of Ralph Palombi.  Some of us liked it with cherries; others preferred strawberries and some liked it plain.  All three options were always available. 

Billie Sue absolutely hated whip cream so if she requested jello with her cake it was served with the cream on the side. 

Dad was a pie eater and Mom often said it took her 40 years to learn how to bake a pie.  She was not kidding.  The fillings were beyond compare, lemon meringue, chocolate crème, blackberry, apple, and pumpkin; all so yummy.  To be honest, the crusts were her Waterloo.  She would roll and pat and sometimes throw it away and start all over again.  The crusts looked like they had been in a war zone but my dad would bravely soldier on and eat every crumb without comment.  Most of the time.


Dear Mom,


            I decided to bake a pie today and took one of Pillsbury’s finest from the freezer.  It reminded me of your pie baking.  I bet you will never forget the time, many years ago, when the Amish started arriving and Dad thought he was doing you a favor by consulting them about their pie baking techniques.  The look that came over your face could have dropped a horse.  Totally oblivious, Dad just kept rattling off his Amish pie baking tips.  It’s a wonder the man ever got another pie after that.  I can laugh about it now, but nobody dared laugh around the dining room table that night.  That was the first time I realized my brilliant, engaging father could be TOTALLY clueless about some things, particularly your less than pretty pie crusts. While never perfect, we always knew those pies were baked straight from the heart.


My sister Pam and I were horse crazy.  Fortunately we were able to live out our fantasies with a variety of ponies and horses over many years. Duke and Princess, Lady Bug and Moon Glo, Misty and Caesar all bring to mind our beloved palominos and bays, chestnuts and sorrels.   We also belonged to 4-H.  That particular combination of horses and 4-H naturally led to that week of wonderment known as the Fonda Fair.  My dad would be in Syracuse at the State Fair with a string of show cattle so it was up to mom to oversee our Fonda Fair experience.  She was deathly afraid of horses, she thought they were too big and mean. One time I asked her to hold Lady Bug’s lead rope.  Mom held on to the very end of the line and Lady Bug calmly stood at the other end and was as clearly as unenthusiased about my mother as Mom was with her. I just know had Lady Bug so much as twitched her tail my mother would have dropped that rope and run for her life. Be that as it may, each year when the time came to load up the horses and make our pilgrimage to the fair grounds Mom was right there. 


Dear Mom,


I woke up this morning and my eyes were watering and my nose was running with late August allergies.  It was foggy when I looked out the window but the sun was just starting to burn through; definitely Fonda Fair weather.  Do you remember how much fun we used to have? You could never understand why we had to leave the house at 5 AM when nobody else got there until 7 or so.  And was it really necessary to stay as late at 9 or 10?  Of course it was!  This was the biggest event of our horse-centered lives.  We worked all summer for this week in the spotlight and Pam and I were determined to enjoy each day to the fullest. While we ate a hurried breakfast you would pack a picnic lunch.  Egg salad or ground baloney sandwiches were always welcomed along with pickles, sweet of course none of us liked dill, potato chips, cookies and gallons of Kool Aid.  It was a kid’s nutritional dream come true.   Once Billie Sue and David were rounded up, off we would go winding our way through east Stone Arabia and creeping ever so slowly down through the Sand Flats in the dark and fog.  We would spend the entire day and half the night there.  When we got home all of us would be covered with sweat and caked with grime and smelling of horse.  One at a time we hit the showers, find our pillows and dream our fair filled dreams.  It wasn’t until many years later, when our Fonda Fair adventures had ended, that I realized something.  If we were not getting to bed before 10 or 11, how late must have you stayed up, Mom?  Every night there was laundry to be done, eggs to be boiled, baloney to be ground and Kool Aid to be mixed.  I never once heard you complain, but I always heard you cheering and clapping from the rail when it was our turn in the show ring.  Thank you for loving us more than you feared the horses.



My mom is no longer with us.  She passed away two days after my birthday in July 2000.  I miss her as much today as I did on that very sad afternoon.  She was our rock, the solid foundation of our youth, the heart of our home.  She filled us with laughter and good food.  She taught us to be kind to each other and to strangers.  She raised us to be hard workers and impressed on us that we must always try to do our best whether it was learning to tie our shoes or attempting to run a library. 

Most importantly, my mother taught us to love unconditionally, the total acceptance of another person, seeing them through eyes unclouded by doubt, mistrust or jealousy. 

Unconditional love sees with eyes that are focused solely on all that is perfect and beautiful about a person.  

Unconditional love is pure and simple and represents everything that is good and sacred in this life. 

We learn unconditional love at our mother’s knees and we learn how right it is to pass it on without any expectations of its being returned. 


Dear Mom,


I am who I am because of you.  When I have done well in this life it is because I heeded your wisdom and respected your experience.   

If things have gone wrong, obviously it was because I didn’t listen real well.

I hope you would be proud of me. 

If I am half the mother you were I will have done a good job.  With her flair for clothing and regal bearing Davida reminds me of you.  She is as stubborn and as opinionated as you ever were. But she too has a wonderful heart and a very fine sense of what is just in this life.   

I am kind to little kids, older people and animals. 

I can grind baloney and with some help, I can almost bake a pie. 

I no longer think my sweet brother is a rat. 

When August comes, if I close my eyes real tight and think hard I can smell leather and horses and sweat. 

When I love it is with fearlessness and abandon.   I know it is not for the faint of heart nor is it always a fairytale nor does it always have to be returned to be splendid.  But thanks to you, I know that without love, there is no reason to get up in the morning.

You were my mother, so full of wisdom and grace.

I love you and I am proud to have been your daughter.
