Voorheesville Library Notes for Wednesday, November 13, 2013

On Friday, Nov. 15, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Healthy Capital District Initiative will be holding private meetings with patrons at the Voorheesville Public Library to discuss health care options available through the Affordable Healthcare Act and will be able to help you fill out whatever paperwork or online forms are needed to register for this new state-based health insurance exchange. Please call the library at 765-2791 to schedule an appointment.

Join the Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Library support many important functions, including the summer reading program, summer concerts and the museum pass program. Joining the FOL is a wonderful way to become a library advocate and reinforce your commitment to the community. Meetings are at 7 p.m., the fourth Monday of each month. The next meeting is Monday, Nov. 25. Stop by and meet the new president, Sherry Burgoon. You can contact Sherry at friends@voorheesvillelibrary.org.

NYC trip

Saturday, Dec. 7, is the date for the Friends of the Library bus trip to New York City. The bus will leave from the Voorheesville Elementary School parking lot at 7 a.m. and arrive at Bryant Park in NYC at 10 a.m. For the return trip, we will be leaving NYC at 7 p.m. and arrive back in Voorheesville at 10 p.m.  The FOL bus trips always fill quickly, so stop by the library at your earliest convenience. The price is $35 for members and $40 for non- members. Paid reservations will be accepted at the circulation desk at the library.

Saying goodbye to Mrs. Laiosa

Please stop by the library on Sunday, Dec. 8, from 3 to 5 p.m., to help us say good-bye to Youth Services Director, Joyce Laiosa.

Mrs. Laiosa has been at the library for 16 years, working in the youth services area. She has been a part of many of our lives, through our children and grandchildren. We will be hosting an open reception in the community room and, courtesy of the Friends of the Library, there will be light refreshments. Please join us.
