Some activities, like the stitching groups, can accomodate any number of people. Others, such as mahjongg, require a specific number of participants. If you are interested in joining a group, please inquire first at the Help Desk (986-1047, ext. 3.) We will try to connect you with a group suitable for you. Likewise, we will be happy to assist you in organizing a completely new activity group, if it can be accommodated at the Library; for this, please call Siobhan O'Riordan at the Library at (845) 986-1047, ext. 5 to discuss.
