The Pleasant Valley Library is pleased to announce that we have Navigators available, trained by NYS, to help patrons with searching the state’s website to register for health insurance on Tuesdays throughout the open enrollment period. Have questions? Heard rumors? This law takes effect in the new year. If you would like one-on-one appointments to help navigate this website and find the most affordable option for you and your family call 800-453-4666 to set up an appointment.
Have a reluctant reader at home? Bring him or her down on the Second or Fourth Tuesday of every month to meet Molly (our specially trained Therapy Dogs International pooch) and her handler Ann. Call for an appointment time between 3:30 and 5 or just drop in for a session.
It’s been mentioned before, but bears repeating. The library hosts two book discussion groups monthly. The morning group meets at 11 am the third Wednesday of every month and the evening group meets at 7 pm the third Wednesday of every month. Check out our events calendar for a listing of which titles have been picked for discussion.
Through a grant with Dutchess County, every library will have a teenager whose job it is on Saturdays to help anyone with a technology issue. Want to learn how to download e-books for free? Confused about what your iPad does? Want to learn how to access car-repair manuals for free? Feel like the only one without email but too afraid to try and set one up on your own? Drop by anytime between 10 and 3:30 on Saturdays and Katlyn will be there. It’s better to make an appointment, so she can set aside time just for you (call 635-8460) but feel free to just drop in as well.
The library offers a FREE monthly meditation group led by certified hypnotherapist and Reiki Master Susan Olin-Dabrowski. First time and experienced meditators are welcome. Meditation can help manage stress and improve quality of life. No registration is necessary, walk-ins are welcome. The group will meet the last Tuesday of every month.
Wondering if your car has a recall? Get the full Chilton Manual for any car through our website! With your library card you get anytime, anywhere access for every domestic and foreign automobile and light truck.
