Celebrate Youth Art Month at the Trumansburg schools – This Saturday, March 7, 10am-noon, a Community Mural-Painting will be held in the Elementary School Cafeteria. Everyone is welcome to help paint in a large canvas which has been designed with drawings from K-12 students in the schools.
Today, March 4th is a TAG meeting! This Teen Advisory Group for middle schoolers meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 3:00 pm in the library. Invite your friends and bring your grand ideas for activities, projects, and fun!
On Thursday, February 26th, the Ulysses Philomathic Library will host Robert Beck to give a talk beside our fireplace. Beck is a local author, educator, naturalist, and environmentalist. He recently published the book entitled The Journey at Malloryville Bog, Beck’s personal narrative of his home and the collective effort to protect the cherished land.
The event takes place at 7:00 pm in the reading room of the library.
As part of the Paleontological Research Institution (PRI)’s Community Accessibility Program, two family passes to the Museum of the Earth and to Cayuga Nature Center will be available for check-out from the Ulysses Philomathic Library. The passes will provide one-day admission to the museums for two adult family members and their children. The passes can be borrowed for one week to allow ample time to use the pass, and are available on a first-come, first served basis. The library and the museum are both excited to work together to provide this learning experience for families in the Trumansburg community. The passes will be available beginning February 10, 2015.
- Any registered adult cardholder in good standing may borrow a museum pass. Museum passes may be borrowed for a one week period, though the passes only entitle the holder (and family) to one visit to the museum facility during that period.
- Passes are not holdable or renewable, and will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.
- Fines for overdue passes are $1 per day with a maximum overdue fine of $10.
- The fee for a lost pass is $60.00.
On second Wednesdays the library hosts a movie after school! This month the date is February 11th, and there will be popcorn, as always!
Join us at 3:15 pm for this fun event!
