Elevator on Path to Being Fixed

E-mail Print

The Village of Garden City and the Garden City Public Library have been working together to repair the problems with the Library’s elevator and will hopefully have it up and running in approximately three to four weeks.

It has been a difficult time for seniors and the physically challenged, and a tremendous inconvenience for the public in general without an elevator running in the Library. However, the Village and Library both agreed that in its present condition the elevator was not safe for people to use.

To address the needs of the physically challenged, there are computers located on the main level in the Young Adult area with access to the Internet, word processing, and the Library’s catalog. Library staff can obtain audio-visual materials for you from the lower level. For Library programs, please check our website or call us for the program’s location as many of them are held on the lower level.

The Village and Library thank the residents of Garden City for their understanding and patience during the past month and a half. If the public has any questions, please call Library Director Lisa Paulo at 516-742-8405, ext. 210.

photo of 'I Wouldn't Be Caught Dead Without a Book' displayGet ready for Halloween with books from the “I Wouldn’t Be Caught Dead Without a Book!” display and other new displays for the month of October at the Library. There are displays with “Hauntingly Good Reads” and “Thrills & Chills” audiobooks for scary listening.

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, there is a display with informational books about breast cancer treatment and survival. October is also Reading Group Month so there is a display of books and audio materials recommended for book-discussion groups. Patrons who want to eat healthier with their family can check out books from the “Eat Better, Eat Together” display.

Browse all the new October displays on the main level of the Library.

Manhasset Art Association

E-mail Print

'Artichokes' - watercolor by Shelley BerkleyThe Manhasset Art Association will exhibit a group show in the Gallery and showcases from November 4-25. View multi-media professional artwork, including pastels, collage, watercolor, oils, acrylics, and photography.

'Moon Goddess' - mixed media by Ann PellatonIn 1948, a small group of Manhasset artists were invited to meet at the home of Helen Jennings. Mrs. Jennings had a dream of organizing a workshop where artists could work together to develop their talents, exchange ideas, and foster a greater appreciation and advancement of the arts in the community. In 1949, a constitution was adopted, and Mrs. Jennings was elected president. The association held meetings at many different sites, such as the Old Firehouse on Bayview Ave., Patricia Murphy’s, Manhasset Hall, the old Onderdonk House, the Community Reformed Church, and, at present, the Quaker Meeting House on Northern Boulevard.

Today, the MMA still offers its members workshops with a live model, and three major art exhibits each year. All members are expected to help run the organization, and it is the spirit of cooperation that makes the group successful.

Exhibit funding is sponsored by the Friends of the Garden City Public Library.
