'The Importance of Exercise in Cancer Recovery'

Florence, a breast cancer survivor herself, received the Diana Domaracki-Kisto Scholarship in 2014 to spearhead a new series of classes on Staten Island. She is also developing programming in Kingston, NY. A woman of countless talents and infinite compassion, she makes an incredible addition to our team of instructors. When not teaching MFL classes, Florence can be found performing, filming, or running Deeptanks (a photography studio/artspace on Staten Island).

Little Free Libraries

The Saugerties Public Library and the Friends of the Library are proud to announce the installation of 12 “Little Free Libraries” across the Town and Village of Saugerties. “Little Free Libraries” are free book exchanges (take a book, leave a book – but not a book you’ve checked out of the library) for promoting literacy and the love of reading as well as strengthening a sense of community.


Free Museum Passes!

The SPL is proud to offer a new museum pass program that provides free admission to museums in the region. SPL card holders can visit these participation institutions using museum passes borrowed from the Library: Mid-Hudson Children's Museum (Poughkeepsie), Museum of Firefighting (Hudson), the U.S.S. Slater (Albany), the Intrepid Sea, Air, & Space Museum (New York City), and Olana State Historic Site (Hudson). The Friends of the SPL generously provided funding for the museum pass program. Passes check out for 3 days.
