We will discuss poetry, stories, or anything you’ve put down on paper. After you sign up, you may come to the library and pick up a new writing book!This program is on Zoom. Link will be sent after 12pm the day of the program.
Artemisia Gentileschi was the most famous female painter of the 17th Century. Although trained by her father, she went on to have a successful, independent career, only to fall into obscurity after her death in 1656. She did astonishing work, mostly portraying courageous and rebellious female protagonists. Come and hear what inspired her— her story is as dramatic and powerful today as it was 400 years ago.
This event is on Zoom. You must register to attend. Zoom links will be sent out at noon, when registration closes, on the day of the event.

For the month of November, we invite you to view our latest virtual art exhibition: Frances Wells: In View of the River. Please visit our website throughout the month https://www.piermontlibrary.org/artist-of-the-month/
Frances Wells: In View of the River
I have been fortunate to live on the Hudson since 1984 in South Nyack, Piermont, and now in Upper Nyack. In all these years, I have witnessed countless dawns and dusks, sun and moon rises along with the slow and persistent movement of those bodies up and down the river with the change of seasons.
I consider our river to be an ever changing work of art in and of itself. As a painter I try to capture just a moment of its beauty with the hope that the viewer is transported to a new place.
These are acrylic paintings on clear birch plywood painted during 2021, a pandemic year. They are all quite small, inviting the viewer to come closer and be more intimate with the work. But this is after all, a virtual show. If you would like to come closer and see these paintings “in person,” I welcome studio visits. You can emails me (email@example.com) or text or call me (845-521-0669) if you would like to come. I hope that you will.
If you dare…….join Ms. Nancy on Wednesday at 5:00 pm for Virtual Kids Halloween Crafts! Pick up your bag of supplies at the library and join us on zoom for a fun craft! Details and registration on our events page
