Will, Wi-Fi and wild games scheduled at Fairview Library

The Fairview Public Library kicks off its spring and summer season events with that wild and crazy game of Bunco on Monday evening, starting June 16 at 7:30 in the community room of the library. Bunco is a popular parlor game involving 100 percent luck and no skill and a simple set of rules. This will be a monthly library fund-raiser with a suggested donation of $5 per player. Call the library, 586-3791 or June Meinstein, 586-4018, to sign up.
The library is privileged to have Albert Verdesca, Shakespearean actor, director, and teacher lead classes in Shakespeare’s sonnets and plays. Classes start Wednesday evening June 18 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. and each Wednesday evening thereafter.
“People Helping People” is a beginner computer workshop. The basics of a computer, available software and how to start getting the most out of this tool will be covered. The first session will be Thursday, June 19. Preregistration is required. Call or stop by the library to sign up.
The Friends of the Library will be opening and running a Wi-Fi Internet Café on the porch of the library on Saturdays during the summer months from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. starting Saturday, June 28.
Relax, read, use a laptop on the library’s porch and treat yourself to coffee, tea, lemonade, and assorted home baked treats. The library has a list of “Friends” and the coordinator, Linda Caswell, will be phoning people this month to see who is available to set up the café and donate baked goods and the necessary supplies for running a café. If you would like to donate your time, supplies, or baked goods e-mail Linda at caswell@catskill.net or phone the library. Leave your name, phone number and e-mail address.
Beverly Travis and her Delta Society-certified leonberger dogs will be returning the first Saturday of each month for her story time. Children get to spend one-on-one quality time with “Buddy” while reading him a story. Story times will be from 11 a.m. to noon. Please call the library to sign up your child for his or her time with a book-loving dog.
This spring and summer, the very popular book sale continues on most Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. both in the community room and in the main entrance of the library during the months of June, and July.
The Fairview Library depends on the generous support and contributions from the community and its patrons. If you would like to help out at any of these events with time or donations, and if you would like to be a part of the “Friends of the Library” please stop by the library or phone us at 586-3791.
