There are worse things in the world than being adopted, but right now Joseph can't think of one. Joseph Calderaro has a serious problem. His social studies teacher has given him an impossible assignment: an essay about ancestors. Joseph was adopted, but the only sure thing he knows about his birth family is that they shipped his diapered butt on a plane from Korea and he landed in New Jersey. How do you write about a family you've never known and at the same time manage all the other hassles that middle school mixes in the pot? What Joseph writes leads to a messy catastrophe and a self-discovery that will change his life forever.

    Contact: Gail Brown   765-2791   gail.brown@voorpl.org
   

The nonfiction book discussion group meets every other month (the second Monday at 7:00) to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

At the dawn of the twentieth century, a great confidence suffused America. Isaac Cline was one of the era's new men, a scientist who believed he knew all there was to know about the motion of clouds and the behavior of storms. The idea that a hurricane could damage the city of Galveston, Texas, where he was based, was to him preposterous, "an absurd delusion." It was 1900, a year when America felt bigger and stronger than ever before. Nothing in nature could hobble the gleaming city of Galveston, then a magical place that seemed destined to become the New York of the Gulf.

Please register at the Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book (cost $5.00).

    Contact: Michele Reilly   518-765-2791   michele.reilly@voorpl.org
   

Today’s baby boomers can expect to live longer in their retirement years due to rapid advances in science, medicine and technology. As a result, increased concerns over longevity are causing a major paradigm shift in how people view the concept of retirement.

Of recent concern, is the timing of when to claim one’s Social Security retirement income benefits? Once a simple decision, now requires advanced planning and a well-coordinated financial strategy. For many retirees and their spouses, taking the time to properly evaluate this important decision can be a major step toward a more secure retirement. However, navigating through a myriad of unfamiliar terminology and trying to decipher numerous claiming options has proven to be a stumbling block for many people often resulting in missed Social Security payments.

“Planning Your Social Security Retirement Income Strategy” is an approximately (1) hour information program that’s presented in an easy to understand format and concludes with a brief Q&A session. The program goal is designed to help attendees (ages 55+) make a more informed decision before choosing when to claim their Social Security benefits.


Topics covered include:
 

  • How much money can one earn before being penalized?
  • What do the “New Rules” mean for those born after January 1, 1954?
  • Understanding the difference between worker, spousal and survivor benefits?
  • When is the best time to collect benefits?
  • Where can one get help to make an informed claiming decision?

 

The program is presented as a public service by John Kalil, a Financial Coach and the President of Retirement Solutions, LLC. John has spent nearly 25 years working with retirees and understanding the many financial challenges they are often faced with. Early on in his career, John recognized the severity of our nation’s financial literacy crisis as it relates to Social Security and retirement preparedness. In 2014, John formed Retirement Solutions with the purpose in mind of utilizing his professional background to address these and other common issues. John continues to volunteer much of his spare time making similar presentations to businesses, organizations and groups across Upstate New York.

 

This event is for information purposes only and is not a solicitation nor is any purchase required. There is no cost to attend. Seating is limited and advanced registration is required.

What is Matcha, that bright green stuff? (“I’d like a Matcha Latte smoothie iced with Boba please “) What is a tea ceremony…is it Chinese…Japanese…?

So much to learn about the world’s most historic and widespread drink.  Can we learn about it in 2 hours.  NO!..but we can begin while tasting some delicious teas of the world.

"Wings of Fire," Book 2: The Lost Heir

Seventh grader, Jason Zeliph, will facilitate a peer-led book discussion of the second book in one of his favorite series “Wings of Fire.” The lost heir to the SeaWing throne is going home at last. Tsunami and her fellow dragonets of destiny are journeying under the water to the great SeaWing Kingdom. Stolen as an egg from the royal hatchery, Tsunami is eager to meet her future subjects and reunite with her mother, Queen Coral. But Tsunami's triumphant return doesn't go quite the way she imagined. Queen Coral welcomes her, but a mysterious assassin has been killing off the queen's heirs for years and Tsunami may be the next target. The dragonets came to the SeaWings for protection, but this ocean hides secrets, betrayal, and perhaps death.

The evening will begin with a pizza dinner (pizza, beverages and dessert provided by the Library). Join Jason for an exciting evening of food, discussion, book-related activities, and special visit from the author via Skype at 6:30.

The Storm by Cynthia Rylant

Life with only the sea can be lonely. Pandora and Seabold have lived most of their lives with the sea: Pandora in a lighthouse and Seabold on a boat. They are quite used to being alone. But one day, the sea does something extraordinary. It brings Pandora and Seabold together! And even better, the sea gives them the ingredients for something that neither of them had considered before, an adventure called "family." The Library will be closed except for the book discussion participants and their families. Grades 2 - 3, please register at the Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book.

Inspector Flytrap in the Da Vinci Cold! by Tom Angleberger & Cece Bell

A Venus flytrap and a goat are a mystery-solving duo in this hilarious first book in the “Inspector Flytrap” series. The plant detective works tirelessly with his assistant, Nina the Goat, on his community’s unsolved cases. Flytrap is interested only in solving "BIG DEAL" mysteries, while Nina seems motivated purely by her ravenous appetite. She has a bad habit of occasionally eating evidence! This book combines wacky humor and a silly cast of characters with adventure, friendship, and mystery.

The Library will be closed except for the book discussion participants and their families. Grades 2 - 3, please register at the Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book.

The nonfiction book discussion group meets every other month (the second Monday at 7:00) to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

In this wake-up call for general readers and undergraduate students, environmental journalist Joel K. Bourne argues that climate change could make it impossible to feed the growing global population in the next 40 years. The accessible narrative takes general readers around the world to meet individuals, families, activists, and agricultural innovators in small and large farms and research projects. The book’s engaging style, larger type, and black and white photos offer further appeal. Author Bourne has written for National Geographic, Audubon, Science, and Outside. He holds a BS in agronomy and a MS in journalism. Annotation ©2015 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)

The nonfiction book discussion group meets every other month (the second Monday at 7:00) to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

At the center of Mountains Beyond Mountains stands Paul Farmer. Doctor, Harvard Professor, renowned infectious-disease specialist, anthropologist, the recipient of a MacArthur "genius" grant, world-class Robin Hood, Farmer was brought up in a bus and on a boat, and in medical school found his life's calling: to diagnose and cure infectious diseases and to bring the lifesaving tools of modern medicine to those who need them most. This book shows how radical change can be fostered in situations that seem insurmountable, and it also shows how a meaningful life can be created, as Farmer - brilliant, charismatic, charming, both a leader in international health and a doctor who finds time to make house calls in Boston and the mountains of Haiti - blasts through convention to get results.

Please register at the Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book (cost $5.00).
