Cornwall Library presents

photography exhibit by David Nicholls

CORNWALL – The Cornwall Public Library at 395 Hudson Street in Cornwall, will host an opening reception to kick off a photography exhibit by David Nicholls, “The Glory of the Garden,” from 4-6 p.m. March 1.

Nicholls has traveled with a camera since his teenage years, recording the places he has visited. Growing up in the U.K., he has never been short of his favored subject, historic buildings, and over the years he amassed a considerable collection of Kodachrome slides. However, the arrival of the digital format has resulted in a late blooming of his photographic enthusiasm, and although much of his photographic activity takes place during his European trips, he now photographs year-round.

Nicholls is also an active member of the Hudson Highlands Photography Club & Workshop, which meets monthly in Chester and welcomes new members.

The opening reception is a drop-in event. Nicholls’s work will be on display in the Library Community Room through April.

Cornwall Library to host

program on Census 2020

CORNWALL – The Cornwall Public Library at 395 Hudson Street in Cornwall, will host a program, Census 2020 … Getting Ready, at 6:30 p.m. March 2, in the Library’s community room.

The U.S. Census, which is required under the Constitution, has been conducted every 10 years since 1790. The results of the 2020 Census will determine the number of seats for each state in the House of Representatives. For elections from 2022-2030, the Census also will determine the number of delegates for each state in the Electoral College.

In 2020, the Census will be conducted primarily online, for the first time. Taking part is your civic duty and is required by law. It’s a way to participate in our democracy and say, “I count.”

Census presenter Mario Garcia will provide information and answer questions. This is a drop-in program, and registration is not required.

Florida Library to host

local author Anthony Musso

VILLAGE OF FLORIDA — The Florida Public Library at 4 Cohen Circle in Florida, is pleased to once again host Anthony Musso on March 5 at 6:30 p.m.

Following each historic site featured, Musso concludes each chapter with a physical address, or for sites off the beaten path, exact driving directions to encourage day trips to visit them. These are the widely unknown and/or less traveled paths of treasures that exist in many communities throughout the region. Learn about the important role that the various sites played in some of the most profound events in local and national history.
