Come and Visit Ossining’s Public Library

As the fall season greets us with crisp air and thoughts of autumnal foliage, the Ossining Public Library goes into full swing with a wide assortment of programs and activities for all ages. From film series to concerts and story times to college readiness programs, we’re offering a variety of workshops and activities. Our Fall Film Series kicks off on September 13th at 7 pm with Felices 140 (in Spanish, with English subtitles).  Join us on September 17th at 2 pm for the kickoff of our Sunday Afternoon Concert Series to see Rebel, a New York-based baroque ensemble. As a special treat, come to the library on Sunday, September 24th at 3 pm to hear the New Westchester Symphony Orchestra.  To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, we are welcoming local historian Miguel Hernandez on Wednesday, September 20th  at 7 pm, for a presentation called “The Puerto Rican Soldier – America’s Foreign Legionnaire” and on Saturday, September 23 at 2 pm, Amalgama Music and Dance will be delighting their audience with music and dance based on South America’s folklore.

If college prep is on your (or your teenager’s) mind, join us this fall for a four-part College Readiness Series, with workshops on the SAT vs. the ACT (September 14th), college applications (September 21st), the college essay (October 12th), college financing (October 26th), and college repayment (November 9th), all at 7 pm.
