The Beekley Library and the New Hartford Recreation Department have brought a holiday StoryWalk to downtown New Hartford.
A StoryWalk is a self-guided strolling and reading experience. Pages of a book are mounted on posters and displayed in order for participants to follow along as they read them.
The walk starts at Town Hall and moves on through the center of town.
This story will remain on display until Thanksgiving when another one will be hung to continue to celebrate the season.
Best wishes for the holidays from the library, the recreation, and the downtown businesses.
Our Next Book Club Meeting is on Wednesday, January 20th, at 7:00 pm.
We will be discussing Oryx and Crake, by Margaret Atwood.
“Atwood has long since established herself as one of the best writers in English today, but Oryx and Crake may well be her best work yet... Brilliant, provocative, sumptuous and downright terrifying.” --The Baltimore Sun
“Truly remarkable. As fun as it is dark... A feast of realism, science fiction, satire, elegy and then some... Atwood has concocted here an all-too-possible vision...She is a master.” –The News & Observer

The Beekley Book Club is a book discussion group that meets via Zoom on the third Wednesday of each month from 7pm to 8pm. All are welcome to join in.
For those who like to plan and read ahead, our February book choice is The Secret Chord, by Geraldine Brooks. Please join us, and happy reading!
Sending you and The Beekley community our warmest wishes for a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year!
This year has been a huge adventure for the four of us. Although we weren't able to perform and tour as we originally planned, 2020 has been a year of growth, discovery, and productivity.
After spending five months apart in the spring and summer, we found our way back to each other in August and eventually made ourselves at home in Salt Lake City, Utah. The biggest adventure of all was living in a house together for three months and immersing ourselves in the magnificent string quartet repertoire! We truly look forward to the day we can return to live concerts, and can’t wait to share a musical experience with you again soon.
Since we've been back together we've recorded a few performances, as well as a Christmas carol, which are included below for the enjoyment of the library patrons or anyone you might know:
