Kingston, NY – Kenneth Ronk, Chairman of the Ulster County Legislature met with representatives of Ulster County Libraries to proclaim April 10-16, 2016 National Library Week here in Ulster County and encourage all residents to take advantage of the wonderful and varied resources they provide.
“Ulster County communities are blessed to have these outstanding resources at their fingertips free of charge.” Ronk said. “If you haven’t been to your library lately, I promise you are missing a great opportunity.”
Chairman Ronk met with Margie Mendard from the Kingston Library, Kara Lustiber from the West Hurley Public Library and Julie Dempsey from the Highland Public Library this week to deliver the proclamation and discuss a variety of programs available at various libraries throughout Ulster County. In addition to lending books, music and movies, today’s modern libraries have everything from computers for job searches to fishing rods. Members can take on line courses at home, download e-books, and through the InfoPortal (http://uclib.org/) kids can look at picture books, adults can learn crafts, and students can take tutorials in the comfort of their living rooms.
