Two great events in one day!


Another great Tuesday afternoon for 24 children who came to learn about burrowers. A follow-up look was taken on the worm farms. Everyone had a great time. 




The second event took place in the evening when the Library welcomed local Historian Mike Russert. 

40 people attended and learned about the author Michael Shaara and his book  Killer Angels. The theme of the evening was The Battle of Gettysburg and Michael Shaara’s account of it. Mr. Russert spoke about  the connection of  Hoosick Falls and its recruits in the war. Everyone gained new insight and the Cheney Library thanks Mike Russert greatly. 

Michael Shaara wrote 8 books – why not come by the Library to checkDSCN0205 one out!



What a Fun Afternoon!





Wow – what a turn-out!!! 38 children came last Tuesday, July 2nd, to see and learn how to make a worm farm.

One worm farm was made out of a big soda bottle and another worm farm was a ‘hands on project’. Dirt and worms were available to be placed in their temporary home, a see-through flat plastic container. The worm farms will be kept at the Library for a couple of weeks and each Tuesday we will check to see the movements of the worms and the tracks they leave behind. We want to assure all animal lovers that all worms will be returned to their original environment. 






Great Success!!!
