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.
Children are paired with an adult “book buddy” for reading and learning activities. The spring session of this intergenerational one-on-one reading program is for first and second graders.
Call the Library to register a child or to volunteer as a Book Buddy. Adult volunteers are needed. TOW School children can be bussed to library.
Participants will learn about the wonderful healing benefits of quietly being and connecting with trees and mother earth. Dress for the weather!
Participants will also receive a free pollinator tree…choice of Virginia Rose, Ninebark or Silky Dogwood
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.
