Senator Tom Libous and Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo sponsored a resolution commemorating the 100th anniversary of our library (see below, or stop by the see the original). We also received a note of recognition from Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. a beautiful plaque presented by Town of Union Supervisor Rose Sotak, and a visit from Endicott Mayor John Bertoni and Trustees Dave Baker and Eileen Konecny. Thanks to all for helping us celebrate GFJ’s 100 years of service to our community. Your kind words of support are deeply appreciated!
There will be no open hours in the Tech Center this Saturday, April 4.
Studies have proved that learning a second language improves brain function and can slow the onset of dementia. Bilingual people benefit from these effects no matter at what age they learn a second language. GFJ offers Mango Languages, a free online language-learning suite with over sixty languages, including a free phone app. And it’s fun! Click the “Online Resources” tab on our web site to get started! (GFJ library card required).
Today is the library’s hundredth birthday! Help us celebrate!
Thank you for supporting our library! We’re looking forward to the next 100 years!
