Cookbook Club

Tuesday Dec 13, 2016, 6:30 p.m.

Browse the featured cookbook at the front desk and sign up for the recipe you’d like to make. Then bring a batch of your selected dish to share, potluck style, during a round table discussion and tasting. Paper plates, napkins, and utensils will be provided by the library.

If your recipe doesn't work out, come anyway! We'd like to hear about your experiences with the recipe, what worked, what didn't, and why. That's what it's all about.

December's book selection is: Barefoot Contessa, how easy is that?: fabulous recipes & easy tips by Ina Garten. This month the focus is on appetizers/small plates/finger foods for holiday entertaining.

Make a macrame bracelet with beads!

Teens and tweens are invited to join us for a macrame bracelet workshop.

Space is limited. Please call 845-359-4595 to register.

The instructor, Amy Kanarek, has been designing and creating jewelry since 2009 for her cottage business, Amy Kanarek Designs Jewelry.

When she is not creating or teaching others how to create jewelry, she teaches French to 1st through 12th graders at the Rockland Country Day School. In her ‘spare’ time, Amy can be found making soup and baking bread.

Exhibition: Local Places: Recent Oil Paintings by Dan Lukens

Monday Jan 2, 2017 Tuesday Jan 31, 2017

Public Reception: Sunday, January 22nd, 2 - 4 PM

For the month of January, the Piermont Library will exhibit Local Places: Recent Oil Paintings by Dan Lukens. An artist’s reception will be held on Sunday, January 22nd from 2 - 4 PM.

Piermont resident and Rockland native, Dan Lukens explores local places and themes in this series of recent oil paintings. Inspired by nature and the surrounding landscape, from the rocks at Tallman State Park, to streets and storefronts, to the creek’s serenity, Lukens’ vision is captured on the canvas.

“The best art is the kind that people are proud to own, not for the name at the bottom of the canvas, but for what it evokes. Good work doesn't need an explanation. The good is in how it makes you feel. I don’t paint to be an artist. I paint because I love the experience. The hope is that the marks I make on a canvas will come together as something worthy of being another person’s cherished possession,” says Lukens, “The local places and themes in my work are the things I know, love and come to understand better as I try to develop them as an image. The hope is that I can bring the viewer with me as all of that unfolds in the paint.”
