Book Signing!

Schoharie Free Library is excited to host a presentation and book signing event for Central New York native, author Coleen Balch, and Middleburgh illustrator and graphic artist, Cathleen Berry, on Saturday, June 8th from 10:30am until 12:00pm in celebration of their new book Rescued, the first in a series of Hannah's Happy Dog Tales(published by Grindstone Press and Graphics).
It is the story of Hannah and her three friends, a group of stray pit bulls simply trying to get by on their own. Sergeant Jeremy, just home from the service, is trying to do the same thing. Learn how they rescue each other (and a few others along the way), and finally find their forever home. Intended for 8- to 12-year-olds, this inspiring book addresses several timely topics: bullying, stereotypes, animal cruelty, bravery, trust, adjustment of returning war veterans, and cooperation.
Join the library for a morning of celebration including a presentation, book signing, refreshments, and a free activity booklet with each book purchased. As an extra special treat Hannah, the real dog who inspired the story, will be there to meet new friends and take pictures! Grindstone Press is pleased to donate 50% of the proceeds from the sale of this series to pit bull rescue organizations across the country.

Dream Big Seminiar!
Schoharie Free Library is pleased to host a Dream Big Seminar with Life Coach Cyd Collischonn on Thursday, June 13th at 6:30pm with a repeat seminar on Saturday, June 15th at 10:30 am.

Join Coach Cyd and rediscover your dream as she helps you discover, chart, and align what you want to achieve in your own personal rebuilding process.
It is a journey of self-discovery, with Coach Cyd guiding you in identifying your own solutions and strategies while teaching you how to become accountable in positive goal setting. During the Dream Big Seminar you will learn how to set realistic goals, what can hinder those goals, as well as learning the steps in the decision making process, bringing you to that moment when you can celebrate the achievement of your goal. The sky is your limit!
