Local library showcased
The Warrensburgh Museum of Local History has created a new mini-exhibit about the Richards Library and its development. The exhibit, which will remain as part of the permanent display, was researched and written by Rita Ferraro and installed by museum director Steve Parisi.
The current special exhibition “Quilts from the Museum Collection,” will remain through September. One historic quilt, an applique reputedly several hundred years old, has been translated into a pattern with instructions by local quilt expert, Linda Denner. The pattern is available at the museum’s “Book Nook” for $5 including tax.
Museum hours through Columbus Day are Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., plus 6-8 p.m. on the first Thursday of the month. The museum is located in the VFW Building at 3754 Main St., with the main entrance and parking at the rear of the building. Admission is free.
