Building support for the Library Advocating for the Library The "Friends can make the difference for this library and our community. During 2008-2009 we raised sufficient funds to purchase a new piano we now enjoy in the Community Room and a complete Wii system for library use. We hope that you and your family will consider becoming a FRIEND and help us to enhance, embellish, enrich and embrace through our NORTH BELLMORE LIBRARY. We would love to have you attend our monthly meetings but even if you can't you can still be a "paying member". Mark your calendars...our next meeting is:


Do you want to be part of a Saturday book discussion group or book club? We are starting one in January. Sara Jane Berman, former director of the East Williston Public Library, will be leading an interactive discussion. Everyone who wants to will get a chance to participate. The group will usually meet the third or fourth Saturday of the month from 2:00--3:00PM. The books for January are available at circulation. In the future, books for the next month will be available at the circulation desk beginning the day of the previous month's book discussion. New Members are always welcome. We look forward to you joining the group. The book for the Saturday Book Discussion on January 22 from 2:00-3:00PM is Under the Banner of Heaven by Jon Krakauer. His literary reputation rests on insightful chronicles of lives conducted at the outer limits. In Under the Banner of Heaven, he shifts his focus from extremes of physical adventure to extremes of religious belief within our own borders. At the core of his book is an appalling double murder committed by two Mormon Fundamentalist brothers, Ron and Dan Lafferty, who insist they received a revelation from God commanding them to kill their blameless victims. Weaving the story of the Lafferty brothers and their fanatical brethren with a clear-eyed look at Mormonism's violent past, Krakauer examines the underbelly of the most successful homegrown faith in the United States, and finds a distinctly American brand of religious extremism. The result is vintage Krakauer, an utterly compelling work of nonfiction.

Bread Givers by Anzia Yesierska

Set on New York's Lower East Side during the 1920s, Bread Givers by Anzia Yesierska is the moving story of a young woman's struggle to free herself from the traditional female role in an Orthodox Jewish family and society. Sara Smolinksy, the youngest daughter of a rabbi, watches as her father marries off her sisters into dire circumstances, and she vows to escape this fate. She leaves home, takes a job as an ironer, and rents a room with a door: "This door was life. It was air. The bottom starting-point of becoming a person." Sara's rebellion and her struggle for self-fulfillment-for education, work, and a marriage based on love-resonates with a passionate intensity all can share.


Acrylic paintings by Diane Bernardo are on display in the Gallery Above the Shelves. Ms. Bernardo studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology and the School of Visual Arts. She worked for about ten years in the fashion industry illustrating shoes. She is passionate about fashion figures and likes to turn them into portraits. She paints many portraits including those of children as well as pictures of nature. Most of her artwork is realistic although she has done some abstract pieces.
