Main Library, Front Lobby Wall

Thursday December 14, 2017 -  Friday January 12, 2018
   9:00 AM  -  9:00 PM In The Gallery
History of Great Neck Stepping Stones Lighthouse
Great Neck Historical Society
 
   
Stepping Stones Lighthouse, an essential aid to navigation, was built in 1876 to protect ships from a dangerous boulder reef which exists in Long Island Sound very close to the tip of Great Neck.  The Lighthouse is located less than a mile from our shore, and is best seen from Steppingstones Park, the Merchant Marine Academy, the Throgs Neck Bridge, City Island, and, of course, from the water.
 
The US Government has been divesting itself of its lighthouses, as it no longer has the funds to maintain them.  The Town of North Hempstead has agreed to attempt to rehabilitate the Lighthouse, and has partnered with the Great Neck Historical Society and the Great Neck Park District to accomplish this task. 
 
The Lighthouse is in dire need of repair.  There are holes in the foundation and in the roof.  The chimney is broken, the inside has been gutted, and ice has been a major problem resulting in more and more cracks.  If the Lighthouse is not repaired, and if it succumbs to the weather, the government will erect a metal tower with a light at the top, and we will lose sight of the history that the Lighthouse represents.
 
It is the goal of the Historical Society, the Town and the Park District to restore the Lighthouse so that we may lead tours of the structure and safely share this relic of the past with the community.

   7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM Handwriting Analysis with Graphologist Pat Siegel  
   

This presentation will explain the basics of handwriting analysis as a personality assessment tool. It is designed to give attendees a general understanding about how to explore handwriting analysis, also known as graphology, on their own. This is a different discipline from handwriting identification which is used to identify whether handwriting is authentic.

Patricia Siegel is an executive coach, handwriting analyst, forensic document examiner, and President of The American Society of Professional Graphologists. She is a former faculty member of The New School for Social Research (New School University) where she taught accredited courses in the psychology of handwriting, handwriting identification and forensic expertise.

February's Selection: Forever by Pete Hamill

Through the eyes of Cormac O'Connor--granted immortality as long as he never leaves the island of Manhattan--we watch New York grow from a tiny settlement on the tip of an untamed wilderness to the thriving metropolis of today. And through Cormac's remarkable adventures in both love and war, we come to know the city's buried secrets--the way it has been shaped by greed, race, and waves of immigration, by the unleashing of enormous human energies, and, above all, by hope.
