Exhibition: Retro Savage: Photography by Sally Savage

Saturday Oct 1, 2016 Monday Oct 31, 2016

Public Reception: Sunday, October 2, 2:00 - 4:00 PM

For the month of October, the Library will present Retro Savage: Photography by Sally Savage in our exhibition space. A public reception will be held on Sunday, October 2nd, from 2:00 - 4:00 PM. All are welcome.

Rockland photographer Sally Savage, who lived in Piermont for fifty-five years and photographed its events, personalities, historic buildings and transformations since the 1970s, is showing a retrospective of her work during the month of October as a kind of farewell and thank you to her beloved long time adult home.

For this exhibition, Savage has been invited to choose from her own favorite photographs to display. There is no particular theme and the work derives from many travels - India, Australia, England, Italy - but is also a love song to the Lower Hudson River Valley.

First Friday Film Series presents: Girl, Interrupted

Friday Oct 7, 2016, 7:30 p.m.

Monthly series: 1st Friday of every month. Free and open to public.

Girl, Interrupted (1999) [R] 2 hr 7 min

October is Mental Health month. We have been asked to show a film on the topic, but none of our suggestions were covered by our movie licensing agreement. Usually these films are Chris’ favorite movies that he can’t wait to show you. This month we’re going to try a little something different. We’ll be screening Girl, Interrupted. Chris has never seen it and will watch it for the first time with you. Hope it’s not scary! Our intrepid librarian and Svengali Jessica Bowen recommended it so we’ll thank or blame her depending how it goes.
