The Pawling Library is Celebrating its Centennial.

For this program we are not only commemorating our library’s anniversary but bringing people together through their passion for great literary works.  We have selected four classic novels, one for each season, that were popular in the1920s when our library first came into being.

Our presenter, Stephanie Rogers, will be reading an excerpt from each novel and then lead a Q & A for our audience. Stephanie Rogers is the author of The Horse I Belong To: How a Misused and Almost Forgotten Grade Mare Showed Me the Way.

Registration is required. You can register on our online calendar or contact Donald, our Adult Program Coordinator, at  11 Broad St. Pawling, NY 12564 / 845-855-3444 /

The Pawling Library is proud to be partnering with our neighbors Pawling Recreation, the Book Cove and the Pawling Resource Center.

To participate in this program, order a copy of The Great Gatsby through our library. You can also support our partner, the Book Cove, by purchasing this classic novel from our favorite book store. The Great Gatsby was written by F. Scott Fitzgerald and published in 1925.
