On February 3, 2018, public libraries throughout New York State and beyond will celebrate the seventh annual Take Your Child to the Library Day with free events and activities for children and families.
This year on February 3rd from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., the Bemus Point Library will demonstrate to parents and caregivers with their children how to enhance the reading and learning process by helping the story come alive through related activities. This event is most appropriate for elementary aged children. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Snacks will be provided including pizza donated by Coppola’s Pizzeria of Bemus Point.
Join us tonight for a presentation on Communication and Dementia!
As Alzheimer’s disease or another related dementia progresses, the communication skills of a person with dementia will gradually decline. Eventually, he or she will have more difficulty expressing thoughts or emotions. Learn what works and what doesn’t in communicating with a person who has dementia.
This presentation is offered by Chautauqua Opportunities Alzheimer’s Services.
When: January 11th (tonight!)
Time: 6:00 – 7:00
Where: Bemus Point Library
The library will be closed in observance of the new year.
Please celebrate safely!
The library will resume normal business hours on Tuesday, January 2.
Looking for Thanksgiving books for kids to read about the holiday? Come check out our large selection! Featuring fiction, historical and other genres – our library has numerous titles to choose from!
We will be hosting Loren Mayshark for a discussion about his latest book, Academic Betrayal. The book talk will be held here at the library on November 30 at 6:30.
Released in April 2017, Academic Betrayal poignantly describes the authors experience while in graduate school and present challenges that other students may encounter as they proceed through the higher education system in the US. Mayshark shares that “Academic injustice and bullying are problems in the US. The system of higher education in this nation must be reformed. My situation in Graduate School was an extreme case, but one that will resonate with many current students, former students, and faculty. My newest book elucidates many of the problems in our system that tragically go unspoken.”

As we continue into Fall, community members continue to enjoy games of chess or checkers. From the looks of it, some games can be pretty intense!
We are so happy with this generous donation made by Jon Stahley!
This set was hand crafted specifically for the library and allows patrons and passersby to engage in some casual – or intense – games! The Black Locust logs used in construction of this set were donated by Tim Lutgen, owner of Maple Springs Tree Service.
Come sit spell and enjoy playing chess or checkers on this creative outdoor board set! Thank you, Jon Stahley and Tim Lutgen!
