COMMUNITY

SAT 28
One Poem a Day Won’t Kill You
GARRISON
Desmond-Fish Library | bit.ly/read-poem
Last month, the library and The Current teamed up to revive this annual event to recognize National Poetry Month in April. The idea was that community members would be recorded at the library reading their favorite poems. Unfortunately, few recordings took place before the library closed. However, we are able to collect and share poem recordings online. Visit the link above and use your phone, tablet or computer to record a favorite poem to share with the community – something we all may need during this challenging and humbling time, notes Ryan Biracree, the library’s digital services coordinator. If you have questions or technical difficulties, email him at ryan@desmondfishlibrary.org.

HEALTH & FITNESS

Gov. Cuomo Live Briefings
10:45 a.m. | twitter.com/NYGovCuomo
Tune in daily to hear statewide updates and plans. Katie Hellmuth Martin, editor of A Little Beacon Blog, says she is a fan, “not only for the facts — he loves telling you about the numbers, what he needs, why he needs it and when he’s not getting it — but he leads you through the scary part, and then presents the life-after-the-pandemic part, helping you through the mental difficulty of this. He usually ends each briefing with basically a sermon.”
