Helena Clare Pittman, author, illustrator, and educator, presents the new edition of her famous children’s book: A Grain of Rice. Now with a fresh design, this classic mathematical folktale tells the story of a clever farmer who outwits the Emperor and becomes the wealthiest man in the world – all starting with one grain of rice.
I hope everyone enjoyed themselves as much as I did this past Saturday (August 18), at our dinner dance at the Catskill Mountain Resort. There was plenty of good food and good music by the Somerville Brothers. We had a great turnout. And, we made some money for the library, too. So many people contributed in so many ways. Thank you all.
We will now be open from Noon until 8:00 PM every Friday. Our hours for the rest of the week remain the same. There’s never been a better time to visit the library!
