Check out the many fascinating stories that are part of our oral history project!
In collaboration with the Piermont Historical Society, we undertook a zoom-based oral history project to collect the stories of our village. We hope you’ll take the time to listen!
Below is just one sample of the many stories collected. We hope you enjoy!
Get ready for Halloween by meeting “spooky” animals–bats, spiders, and more–and then find out how they’re not so scary after all! All children welcome, accompanied by an adult.
Program will be held at the Tappan Manse Barn. Please register everyone in your group who will be attending to ensure social distancing. Sponsored by the Mighty Five South Orangetown Libraries.
Our Virtual Art Show for October is Laurie Peek: In Lieu of Flowers. Please visit our website throughout October to view this beautiful exhibition https://www.piermontlibrary.org/artist-of-the-month/
From the Artist…..This photographic series, In Lieu of Flowers, is in memory of my son Jackson R. Turner, who drowned in Tulum, Mexico in July 2020. Because of covid, there was no funeral, only his shipped cremains. It is also for my mother, my grandmothers, teachers and friends whose funerals I could not attend… And it’s for all those who’ve experienced a similar loss. In my son’s case, as many do, I asked well-wishers to donate to a cause in lieu of sending flowers.
These images are 10.5” x 14” archival, pigment, photographic prints on vellum with hand-painted gold and silver metallic gilding on the backs. The flowers are mostly from my garden.
Signed, Editioned (5) Prints are $750

Join us for a fun, relaxing, and creative series of art classes taught by Alexis Starke! We will explore a range of materials and techniques and draw inspiration from a variety of sources from contemporary artists, art history, science, and the natural world. For our first project we will create imaginary landscapes inspired by contemporary American artist Shara Hughes. Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Hughes lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She earned a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and later attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. She describes her lush, vibrantly chromatic images of hills, rivers, trees and shorelines, often framed by abstract patterning, as “invented landscapes. All materials are provided. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Registration through our website events page.
