Inside the Green Lobby Author Talk and Book Signing
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Inside the Green Lobby

A veteran environmental lobbyist reveals the behind-the scenes struggles to address threats to the future of New York’s Adirondack Park. Inside the Green Lobby recounts the efforts, both at the State Capitol in Albany and in the halls of Congress, of a lobbyist for a major environmental advocacy group. Bernard C. Melewski worked to save the six-million acre Adirondack Park from twin threats to its future: the devastating damage from acid rain and the sudden breakup of massive private land holdings that had been intact for almost one hundred years. Starting with the political uproar ignited by the recommendations of New York Governor Mario Cuomo’s 1990 Adirondack Park Commission, and the rejection by the public of a new environmental bond act, Inside the Green Lobby, documents the events that led to the adoption of federal acid rain regulations and the sudden acquisition by New York State of tens of thousands of acres within the park now available for public enjoyment. From strategy sessions with lobbyists to private meetings with legislators, governors, members of Congress, and even the President of the United States, Melewski recounts engaging and entertaining stories that introduce how environmental advocates successfully pursued legislative and policy change. Labeled both interesting and important, Inside the Green Lobby should be irresistible for political junkies but also worthwhile for those who don’t know much about how a bill becomes law. Copies of the book will be available to purchase at the event. Light refreshments will be served. No registration needed.

The Great Give Back - Sleep in Heavenly Peace

The Great Give back 2022

Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a local volunteer organization that builds beds for kids who are sleeping on the floor. In the last four years, they've delivered close to 800 beds in our region. From September 15 - October 15, we'll be collecting new (in original packaging) twin sheet sets, comforters, and pillows. SHP serves ages 3-17, so both children's-themed and teen/neutral-themed sheets are needed. In addition, we'll be collecting funds to build beds. For more ways to help (like building and delivery), visit http://www.shpbeds.org . The Great Give Back was created by New York State libraries to provide a day of opportunities for patrons to participate in meaningful, service-oriented experiences.

Forever ChrysalisForever Chrysallis by Maija DeRoche

Years after high school, four women return to the Finger Lakes to perform again as their quartet, Chrysalis. What still binds them together is not only their music but having to deal with their problematic mothers. While the adult daughters are rediscovering harmony in their singing and in their friendships, the mothers form bonds of their own -bonds made of secrets and new discoveries- and ultimately they find answers that bring the mothers and their daughters to a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationships to each other.
