2013 Summer Reading Program



The Valley Falls Library is gearing up for the Summer Reading Program! Sign up between June 12th to June 26th at the library. Read and record your books in the record we give you, and return it between August 7th to August 21st. You will receive a paperback book, a certificate and a prize!

DCF 1.0

On the summer schedule will be a program called “Pete the Pirate’s– Diggin’ for Treasure”: This highly popular comedy/variety show features soft ventriloquist puppets, Sam the Parrot and Clarence the Clownfish. The show also includes spirited pirate songs, and hilarious comedy magic. With a magical treasure map, Pete digs for clues. “Aargh” you ready to discover what’s hidden in his treasure chest?

When:  July 22nd at 6:30PM

Where: Valley Falls Community Hall

11 Charles Street, Valley Falls


Also scheduled will be a program by the Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery from Skidmore College.  In keeping with the 2103 theme of Dig into Reading, the program will be based on the colorful and whimsical sculpture, Personnage, by Joan Miró, pictured above. There will be a discussion of this sculpture, and the children will make their own “personnage” incorporating various materials such as wire, wood and a small plastic shovel, as a tool to help Dig into Art.

When: July 24th at 11:00AM

Where: Valley Falls Community Hall

11 Charles Street, Valley Falls

To sign up for the Summer Reading Program, or for more information, contact us at the library, 753-4230.

Time to Plan!





The village-wide garage and lawn sale is an annual fundraiser for the library, and you can help!  For a donation of $10.00, you will receive a place on the “Garage Sale Map” and all advertising. This can be your house, or you can “rent” space on the library lawn. Please stop in to the Library to get your registration form, or contact Sandi for more information.

Date: June 8th

Time: 9AM-2PM

If you would like to donate baked goods, perennials or “treasures” for our sale, or can be of other assistance, please contact the library.
