A Peek at B-BP Library Upcoming Events & Programs

The library is a terrific resource for everyone from toddlers to senior citizens.

There is always something, usually alot of somethings, happening at local libraries so Patch thought it'd be helpful to residents to have a weekly look at library activities and programs.

Here is what's coming up at the Bayport-Blue Point Library in the next few weeks. For the full calendar of events and programs check out the library's website and monthly newsletter.

For the older generation: Don't miss the  Jack Schnur presents: “A Tribute to Frank Sinatra” on Sunday, September 30 at 2 p.m. Schnur returns to the Bayport-Blue Point Library once again to work his magic, this time with a profile of the great Frank Sinatra. Using video clips, photos, and scenes from his movies Mr. Schnur gives his audience an unforgettable look into the career of one of the greatest entertainers and self-styled, “saloon singers.”

In the display cases: Every month the library's display cases boast great art and local hobbyist collections. Right now Diane Maher's collection of all shapes and sizes salt cellars is housed in the LaCluse case. Besides being an expert on home canning Mark Vosburgh is a carver. Several of his fish decoys are on display in the hall cases.
