Here’s the recent news from the Belden Noble Memorial Library.
A gentleman from St Lawrence County stopped in yesterday with a copy of this book and asked to have it stamped with our library stamp. It’s a passport-type book with a short write-up and photos submitted by residents of 102 Adirondack towns (including a very nice section on Essex). The idea is to visit the towns and meet some new folks in the process. The rules are loose and there is nothing to submit. We thought it would be fun to buy a copy for the library, and we invite you to check it out and take it on some adventures.
You can read all about the Adirondack 102 Club here.
Here are a few new titles we added to our collection this week. You can check on their availability here.

Family in Need
Jim Van Hoven has asked us to help spread the word about an effort to help the Staats family, who are in the midst of severe challenge. Please see Jim’s letter here: Message from the Essex Community Church.
Hope to see you in the library soon.
