Middleburgh Library Notes for Thursday, February 27, 2014

On Feb. 27 at 7 p.m., Philip Potak, a member of the Dramatists Guild of America, will give a concert, “Play Reading” at the Middleburgh library. 

His newest play, Heir Apparent, is a two-character piece that re-visits his running theme of family and how that concept cannot be defined simply, with a white picket fence. 

Tickets are available at the door.  A $10 donation is suggested.  Please use the library’s back entrance.

Dinner and a movie

Pm Feb. 28 at 5:30 p.m., Gravity, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, will be screened.

The library will provide pizza, salad, and drinks and you bring a dessert to share!  Please note that this movie is rated PG-13 and is not suitable for young children.  Registration is required.

Grown-up board games

Drop in for stories

On March 4, at 10:45 a.m., get ready to move in this interactive story time designed especially for children up to age 5 and their caregivers.

Crock-Pot Cook-Off

On March 8, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Middleburgh Library is holding its Fifth Annual Crock-Pot Cook-Off and we are looking for cooks to enter their creations in the categories of Chili, Soups, or Other. 

It is free to enter your crock-pot in the competition but you must pre-register at the library or online.  All crock-pots should be to the library by 10:30 a.m. and should arrive already hot; please bring a serving utensil with you.  Prizes will be given in each category and will be drawn at 2 p.m.

If you just would like to come and eat, sampling of crock-pot fare and voting begins at 11 a.m. and goes until 2 p.m.  Admission is $5 for adults and children over 5.  Children under 5 are admitted for free.  Beverages and desserts will be available for an additional $1 each.
