The Old Forge Library will host the community’s first “Coffee with a Cop” session at the library (220 Crosby Blvd. Old Forge) on Thursday, May 26, 2022 at 10:30 am. The library will supply coffee and other refreshments as well as baked goods to those who participate to come and strike up a conversation with Town of Webb Police Officer, Mike Uhl.
Coffee with a Cop sessions are happening in communities all over the country. The mission of Coffee with a Cop is to break down the barriers between police officers and the citizens they serve. The idea is to bring police officers and the community members they serve together–over coffee–to discuss issues and learn more about each other.
As with all library programs, this event is free to attend. For additional information call the Old Forge Library at 315-369-6008 or email email@example.com.
Check with the library to find out what book we are discussing each month, then join other book-lovers. An informal discussion group, always welcoming new members both in person and via Zoom.
The Friends of the Old Forge Library, founded in 1977, is a volunteer organization whose goals are to promote library programming and to help raise revenue to support the library. The group sponsors Authors’ Day, Art Exhibits, and events of local interest such as Adirondack Programming. In addition, the Friends publish four newsletters a year. Revenue is raised through book, bake, & bazaar sales, and their annual BASH Benefit.
The Friends meet on the first Tuesday of each month at Noon and welcome new members.
The July 14, 2022 Board Meeting has been postponed until
Thursday July 21 @ 6pm.
A gourd rattle workshop at 4 pm will be led by artist, Andreé Dennis Newton. All supplies will be provided for participants to make and decorate their own gourd rattle using natural materials such as gourds, corn, beans and rice. The rattles will come in handy at 7 pm when Joe and Jim Bruchac, renowned storytellers return to an Old Forge audience to lead our community in a Summer Solstice ceremony and celebration starting at 7 pm and culminating in a ceremonial fire and drum circle. Jim will light the special solstice fire using a traditional bow drill. The public is invited to bring percussion items with them, rattles, bongos, handheld drums, tambourines, maracas, castanets…whatever sounds fun.
