It’s amazing what you can find out about local history by searching old newspapers! Michele Mitrani, Village Historian, researched what Thanksgiving in Trumansburg looked like for its residents in the late 19th century, using the “Trumansburg Historical Papers” database that you can access on the Ulysses Philomathic Library website. Come take a look at the new history display that highlights the information she found about Thanksgiving in Trumansburg. You may be surprised at what you learn about your Village!
Here is the website where anyone can research local newspapers from any device with internet access: trumansburg.advantage-preservation.com/
The children’s area of the library is currently showing self portraits by third graders from Trumansburg Elementary School. Students began by learning about the human body. They created proportional skeletons by measuring and cutting strips of white paper. The students glued their skeletons in poses which are based on their favorite activity. From the skeleton, students added details of a realistic body. Be sure to see these works of art by young talented students in our community!
The library is currently showing the work of local artist Kathy Armstrong. Throughout the library you will find Armstrong’s paintings in watercolor and acrylic mediums. Her work focuses on local everyday scenes and still lives. Effects of light play an important role in the artist’s interest in a particular composition.
Kathy Armstrong attended the Art Institute of Pittsburg and worked as a graphic designer in Madison, Wisconsin. She now lives in the Finger Lakes region where she works in her own art studio.
