Throughout May and June, works of watercolor, acrylic, and photography by the Finger Lakes Art Group will be on display throughout the library. This floral exhibit includes work by Kathy Armstrong, Deborah Bilinsky, Domenica Brockman, Diane Van Delden, Camille Doucet, Cheryl A. Jordan, and Cynthia Brett Mannino.
The Finger Lakes Artists Group is a group of artists who get together on a regular basis to paint, draw, go on field trips, and inspire and support each other. In warm weather the group paints outside, en plein air, and in the winter inside the Ulysses Philomathic Library.

Be Who You Are.
When people look at George, they think they see a boy. But she knows she’s not a boy. She knows she’s a girl.
George thinks she’ll have to keep this secret forever. Then her teacher announces that their class play is going to be Charlotte’s Web. George really, really, REALLY wants to play Charlotte.
But the teacher says she can’t even try out for the part…because she’s a boy.
With the help of her best friend, Kelly, George comes up with a plan. Not just so she can be Charlotte— but so everyone will know who she is, once and for all.

On Thursday, May 26th at 6:30 pm, Elizabeth Root will lead a discussion as a part of the Spring Speakers Series.
Using Betsy’s book, Kids Caught in the Psychiatric Maelstrom, as a springboard, along with other sources of information, we’ll discuss the state of our 21st Century children, and how do we best nourish their hearts, souls and brains.
