    * AWPL Foundation College Scholarships:  the AWPL Foundation warmly congratulates WVHS Seniors Jacob Butchko, Alyssa Schaechinger and Chloe Borthwick, recipients of the 2018 AWPL Foundation College Scholarships, and salutes all the students who participated in this year's essay competition.  Their essays were among the most polished, creative and insightful submitted since the inception of this scholarship, and a joy to read. 

    * Salmagundi Consort to Perform:  on Sunday, June 3 at 2:00pm, please come enjoy a concert by the Salmagundi Consort. 
    The trio will present an introduction to popular music of the Hudson Valley in the late 18th century.  Gene Tozzi (hammered dulcimer), Jane Barsumian (violin) and Sona Hairabedian (cello) combine music with reenactment, interspersing their concert with accounts of musical performance of the period. Their repertoire includes popular English, Irish and Scottish music of the 18th century.  The concert will be held outdoors on the River Birch Patio; please bring a blanket or lawn chair.  In the case of rain, the concert will be held in the Community Room and the first 80 people registered will be seated.  Register here now!

    * New Museum Pass!  For transportation enthusiasts, the Library has added passes for free admission to the New York Transit Museum.  Each pass admits two adults and up to four children.  Review all the Library's museum passes here.

    * Warwick Cafe Reading Project:  in the spirit of the season, and as a tribute to the many Warwick gardeners who beautify our public spaces, the Spring 2018 selection for our shared community reading project is The Language of Flowers, by Vanessa Diffenbaugh (2012).  Find copies now at participating cafes including Tuscan Cafe, Jean-Claude's Patisserie, Noble Pies Cafe, Conscious Fork, Caffe a la Mode and the Edenville General Store.  Read, enjoy, share!
