How to Finish like Pam and Catalog like Mandy

Want more information about what to do with your uncataloged donated (or purchased) items when STLS no longer receives them through the delivery?

While you can always check out the resources we have listed for you on the website (http://www.stls.org/processing-finishing), coming to this workshop will give you face to face access to Mandy and Pam. Pam will walk through how to finish a library material so that it looks good on the shelf, withstands some moderate circulation, all without owning a laminator. Mandy will guide you through our amended process of submitting bib requests electronically, with tips for faster turn around.

This event immediately follows the Directors Advisory Council meeting. Also, it will be repeated after the Allegany County Directors meeting on September 11th.

Revisiting the Founding Era: Dispelling Myths and Misconceptions
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

As our country celebrates another anniversary this month, come together to examine and discuss the founding themes of our great experiment in democracy.  In this session, explore the ways in which American political culture draws on Founding era myths, and review recent scholarship that challenges the way that most contemporary Americans understand our constitutional foundations.   Discussion will be facilitated by Angela Narasimhan, associate professor of political science at Keuka College.  Participants will have access to a curated reader of primary resources that illustrate the era’s themes.  Sign up to reserve a copy by calling 315-536-6114 or by clicking the link below, then come by the library to pick it up to peruse ahead of the session. 

Revisiting the Founding Era is a three-year national initiative of the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, presented in partnership with the American Library Association and the National Constitution Center, with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The grant provides 100 public libraries across the country the opportunity to use historical documents to spark public conversations about the Founding Era’s enduring ideas and themes and how they continue to influence our lives today. Visit www.foundingera.org for more information on this national program, and visit your library to take part in this timely conversation!  Watch for related events in the coming months.

Geology of the Finger Lakes
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

The Finger Lakes region contains some of New York’s most distinctive and beautiful landscapes. What clues about New York’s recent and more ancient geological past can we read from the landforms and rocks we encounter every day? Glaciers produced much of what we see, but rocks underneath the glacial features tell an even older story about ancient tropical seas, volcanoes and mountains on the horizon, armored fish, the very first forests, strange amphibians, and more.  About the presenter: “By geological standards of time, David Kendrick was born and grew up in Indiana, earned a B.S. in Geology and Geophysics from Yale and a Ph.D. in Geological Sciences from Harvard, studied rocks and fossils in places like Utah, Montana, Jamaica, the Bahamas, New York, Australia, Sweden, and the Netherlands, and became an Associate Professor of Geoscience at Hobart & Wm Smith Colleges, all in the blink of an eye.”
