Reading & Discussion Series: American Politics and Community Today
2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

In this session, participants will tie everything together and brainstorm strategies to make real-life improvements to civic communication in Yates County.

Why is our country so divided today?  How can we start to bridge the gaps between us?  This July and August, take a small step toward understanding.  Penn Yan Public Library and the Civic Dialogues Group are pleased to present a series of facilitated discussions about Talking to Strangers: Anxieties of Citizenship since Brown v. Board of Education by Danielle Allen.  Each week, read a portion of the book and meet at the library to share your reactions and ideas, guided by Dr. Henry Thomas, professor emeritus of political science at the University of North Florida.  This program is made possible by Humanities New York’s Adult Reading & Discussion grant program, which also makes copies of the text available to borrow.  Please call 315-536-6114 to register for this free program and to reserve a copy of the book; they are provided on a first-come, first-served basis, and are expected to be returned at the end of the series. 

About the book: “’Don't talk to strangers’ is the advice long given to children by parents of all classes and races. Today it has blossomed into a fundamental precept of civic education, reflecting interracial distrust, personal and political alienation, and a profound suspicion of others. In this powerful and eloquent essay, Danielle Allen, a 2002 MacArthur Fellow, takes this maxim back to Little Rock, rooting out the seeds of distrust to replace them with ‘a citizenship of political friendship.’”

Graphic Novel Book Club: THE SCULPTOR
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

This month, read and discuss THE SCULPTOR by Scott McCloud, in which an artist makes a bargain with Death to bring anything he imagines into being—but he only gets 200 more days to live.  McCloud, a creator and literary theorist who literally wrote the book on comics, has contributed a sensitive and moving work to the graphic canon with this piece.  Closely related to comic books, graphic novels are a uniquely American mode of storytelling known for an incredible range of expression thanks to their union of words and pictures.  This group is intended for adults aged 18 or older.  No need to be a comic fan—give this unique medium a try!  And please consider supporting our gracious host site by purchasing one of their fine products during our visit.  Please call (315) 536-6114 or visit our events calendar at www.pypl.org to register for this free event.

Cooperative Fee-Based Services Discussion
9:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Historically, STLS has provided member libraries with services beyond what is required in Education Law or allotted through NYS Aid. Some of these services have included print shop, acquisitions, physical processing of materials and varying IT support.

STLS, as a cooperative system, has offered these services through some type of fee structure because they are essential to our membership and provide significant cost savings to the local library.
During our 2016 Plan of Service Focus Groups and Cost Share Discussions, member libraries asked STLS to facilitate some type of conversation around current “fee-based services”.  Both Processing and IT Support are our only fee-based services.

On Wednesday, August 30 from 9:00 am – 12:30 pm, we invite member libraries to participate in this information gathering session. At this meeting, STLS staff will talk about how these services are currently provided, their costs, what other systems are doing and offer suggestions as to how we can keep services cost effective while improving customer service.

Member libraries are asked to be present and share their experiences relative to these two “fee-based services”. This is your cooperative library system and we need to hear from you. The information gathered at this session will assist STLS with key decision-making to provide the most beneficial services to our members.  

Thank you for your consideration and ongoing support.

Classics in Religion: Intro to Sufism
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Come explore a tapestry of rich topics with deeply spiritual threads.  Everyone in invited to attend one or many sessions.  

"Mystics cherish an individual, unique relationship with whatever and whomever they experience as the Divine.

The Inyati Order is a particular branch of Sufism which is independent of any one religion and follows the thread of Divine Truth which weaves its way through known and even unknown religions and traditions.  Its founder, Inayat Khan, was an Indian mystic and musician who was the first to bring any form of organized Sufism to the West.  He realized and taught the universality of Divine Truth and opened this path to all interested seekers irrespective of religion (including no religion), race, gender or other discriminating characteristics.  Our common humanity and connection is all that matters. The present head of The Inayati Order (called the Pir) is Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, Inayat Khan’s grandson who will be visiting Rochester, NY Oct. 13-15 (visit website listed below).

This four session introduction (Sept. 11 and Nov. 6, 13 & 20) will be experiential and include samples of Inayati Order activities, including spiritual practices, worship, group healing services and others.  There is ample time for discussion, questions and exploration of areas of interest, Sufi concepts and the history of the Order.  All are welcome."

Rev. Henry Cretella, M.D. is a senior teacher in The Inayati Order and the associated Sufi Healing Order, a minister (Cherag) of the Universal Worship, a spiritual guide as well as individual and group retreat guide and a leader of Dances of Universal Peace.  He is one of several local leaders of the Sufi Order of Rochester, a local chapter of The Inayati Order in Rochester, NY (sufiorderofrochester.org).  He offers many seminars and retreats and is especially interested in connecting Sufi teachings with modern concepts in psychology, psychiatry, philosophy and science.  He has worked professionally as a general, child and adolescent psychiatrist in many areas of Western NY.

The series is sponsored by Cobblestone Springs, www.cobblestone-springs.org.

The presentation includes many low-cost ideas that require minimal staff time. You’ll also have the chance to engage in conversation and Q&A with Amy.

After participating in this event, you will:

  • Gain at least 40 program ideas for adults.
  • Be ready for each month with a few program ideas for each.
  • Receive an outline of the themes and ideas plus an organized list of programs audience members add in typed chat.

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Come explore a tapestry of rich topics with deeply spiritual threads.  Everyone in invited to attend one or many sessions.  

"Mystics cherish an individual, unique relationship with whatever and whomever they experience as the Divine.

The Inyati Order is a particular branch of Sufism which is independent of any one religion and follows the thread of Divine Truth which weaves its way through known and even unknown religions and traditions.  Its founder, Inayat Khan, was an Indian mystic and musician who was the first to bring any form of organized Sufism to the West.  He realized and taught the universality of Divine Truth and opened this path to all interested seekers irrespective of religion (including no religion), race, gender or other discriminating characteristics.  Our common humanity and connection is all that matters. The present head of The Inayati Order (called the Pir) is Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, Inayat Khan’s grandson who will be visiting Rochester, NY Oct. 13-15 (visit website listed below).

This four session introduction (Sept. 11 and Nov. 6, 13 & 20) will be experiential and include samples of Inayati Order activities, including spiritual practices, worship, group healing services and others.  There is ample time for discussion, questions and exploration of areas of interest, Sufi concepts and the history of the Order.  All are welcome."

Rev. Henry Cretella, M.D. is a senior teacher in The Inayati Order and the associated Sufi Healing Order, a minister (Cherag) of the Universal Worship, a spiritual guide as well as individual and group retreat guide and a leader of Dances of Universal Peace.  He is one of several local leaders of the Sufi Order of Rochester, a local chapter of The Inayati Order in Rochester, NY (sufiorderofrochester.org).  He offers many seminars and retreats and is especially interested in connecting Sufi teachings with modern concepts in psychology, psychiatry, philosophy and science.  He has worked professionally as a general, child and adolescent psychiatrist in many areas of Western NY.
