Tivoli Free Library Events for the Weeks of 4/25/16 & 5/2/16
Tuesday, April 26
6:00pm-7:00pm – The Serious Side of Food – Session for the “Serious Side of Food” discussion series led by Professor Joseph Campisi of Marist College. In “The Serious Side of Food,” participants will come together over the course of five sessions to discuss a variety of thematically linked texts with Marist College Philosophy Professor, Joseph Campisi. Participants in “The Serious Side of Food” will explore an aspect of our culture that often gets taken for granted: food. Food provides both nourishment and pleasure, of course, but under the surface of each meal lies a series of complex interactions and entanglements. Working with histories, novels, and journalism, this series exposes some of the issues that lie on our plates. Tonight’s discussion is on the second half of “The Third Plate” by Dan Barber. This series of classes is FREE, but space is limited, so please register ASAP by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 845-757-3771.
featuring “Fantasy Fiction” both musically and literally. A performance of Benjamin Britten’s Fantasy for Oboe and String Trio. The Library offers programs throughout the year for both the young and old, and this project aims at engaging the imaginations of both. This program is FREE and open to all! No registration required. On the third floor of Village Hall.
“Setting up office hours in our local libraries offers an opportunity for constituents who may not live near the district office to meet my staff and ask any questions they may have so that we can offer support and assistance,” said Cahill. “It is my hope that residents in the 103rd Assembly District take advantage of these events. We welcome your voices and invite you to stop by, even just to say hello and introduce yourself. As always, the district office in Kingston will remain open from 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday. This is a way to expand our reach.” For further information, or if you have suggestions on places where we might hold future community hours, please contact the Kingston District Office at(845) 338-9610.
