Here are our Mesopotamia attendees. We had a great time with awesome students. The next program is Ancient Egypt on October 4 from 3:30-4:30pm. If you want to walk like an Egyptian, register your child by September 30.


Learn to Zentangle

Join us in the library on Thursday from 6:00-7:00ish p.m. for a Zentangle class with Bernie. This is the library’s summer reading program for adults AND teens. We have 26 spots open. It’s free. We’ll provide the supplies for you to learn about Zentangle (not doodling) and create a “tile.” Should you feel inspired to continue this art on your own, you’ll have the opportunity to purchase a kit which includes 4 Apprentice tiles, pigma pen, Zentangle pencil, and blending stump for $5. Bernie is not a certified Zentangle teacher but someone who loves the art. The library has several new books on the subject. So come out to relax, create and be inspired.


Bags, Buttons & Bows

Please join us at the Pember on Saturday April 23 starting at 4:00pm for our Bags, Buttons & Bows fundraiser.

We’ve all done it: bought that perfect handbag, scarf, or piece of costume jewelry. And there it sits, years later, still in your closet with the tags on. Donate these lost items to the Pember. We’ll accept handbags and other accessories in good condition (no shoes or clothing please).

Donations will be accepted until April 20. Then on Saturday, April 23, you’ll get a chance to buy what somebody else found in their closet. It may be perfect for you!

You do not need to donate to take part in the sale.

For each item donated, you’ll get a playing card (up to three cards). Additional cards may be won or you may buy up to two additional cards. The top three hands at the end of the afternoon will each win a prize. There will be door prizes throughout the afternoon.

Light refreshments will be available.

For more information, contact the Pember, 33 West Main St., Granville, 518 642-2525.

Vintage Photos of the Pember

Here’s a couple photos of the Pember Library and Museum. The black and white is dated 1910 and the color is from a postcard with a postal date of 2 Apr 1915.
