On Monday, October 27th, local author Anthony Musso will be at the library to talk about his latest book, Staatsburg: A Village Lost In Time. The talk will begin at 6:30 P.M and end at 8:30 P.M. Join Tony as he discusses his latest book about the beautiful historic town of Staatsburg in the early 1900s. Tony describes how “The two-mile stretch of Old Post Road that spans the north and south access points from Route 9 and runs through the center of the Village of Staatsburg is today a peaceful, quaint thoroughfare. This quiet village stands in stark difference to the Staatsburg that existed before 1932…”. If that got you interested, call the library at 845-635-8460, or email email@example.com to reserve your place!
