Home grown II »

Posted: Tue, Aug 18, 2009

Inspired in part by our June exhibit/program "Home Grown", library staff decided to experiment with some vegetables planted among shrubs and grasses in our backyard.

Here you see a sample of what we were able to grow in very limited space with a modicum of effort. With the exception of the tomatoes, everything was grown from seed. It's really fun and we would encourage you to give it a try! You can even use pots on the terrace for some of these plants - although that probably wouldn't work too well with the wild and crazy squash!

Thanks to garden designer Mary Ellen LeWarn for her advice and able assistance.

In Memoriam – Miriam Rapport and Martin Gorosh  »

Posted: Thu, Jun 18, 2009

With great sadness, the Trustees of the Piermont Library note the loss of two of their colleagues and friends, Miriam Rapport, who died on May 26, and Martin Gorosh, who died on June 3.

Martin Gorosh

Martin was our longest-serving trustee – twenty-five years by our estimation. During those years Martin worked tirelessly to help make real his dream of a new state-of-the-art library building with easy patron access. To this end, he led the board’s construction committee, dealing with innumerable challenges while keeping track of every penny spent. But Martin’s contribution goes beyond the hours and energy he spent to realize this goal. What he really contributed to us on the board was a vision of what we could be. He will be replaced on the board but not in our hearts.

Miriam Rapport

Almost from the moment that she moved into Piermont in the early 1990s, Miriam was a stalwart supporter of the library, serving as president of the Friends of the Library and then as trustee, president, and vice-president of the Library Board. Her tireless efforts and enthusiasm were major factors in making real our hopes and plans for a new library building. The vital and beautiful Piermont Public Library–now a centerpiece of our community–is her living legacy.
