Our V.I.T.A. (Voluntary Income Tax Assistance) Program has been extended to all Saturdays until May 15. You can call the library, on a weekday, to request an appointment for either 12 noon or 12:30 p.m. on those Saturdays.
Hillside Library is partnering with Assemblywoman Gina L. Sillitti’s office in supporting Long Island Cares and Baxter’s Pet Pantry, in order to provide individuals and families in need, so that they can maintain their pets. There is a box at the library where your donations can be dropped off; and the supplies needed are: 5+ pound bags of pet food; canned pet food; pet treats; cat litter and NEW pet toys. We thank you for your generosity.

Unless otherwise specified all Library Sponsored Events will be using the Zoom platform. Prior to the program the Zoom access information will be emailed to you.

Reshaping Unconscious Bias with Dr. Penny Stern Tuesday, April 20 at 7 p.m. Dr. Penny Stern will illustrate the difference between bias and unconscious bias, including racial bias, and how to increase the conscious awareness of the factors influencing decision-making.

Book Discussion: Mystery Book Club Wednesday, April 21 at 7 p.m. The book being discussed is: The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley. It is the summer of 1950–and at the once-grand mansion of Buckshaw, young Flavia de Luce, an aspiring chemist with a passion for poison, is intrigued by a series of inexplicable events: A dead bird is found on the doorstep, a postage stamp bizarrely pinned to its beak. Then, hours later, Flavia finds a man lying in the cucumber patch and watches him as he takes his dying breath.

Boots on the Ground Genealogy Thursday, April 22 at 7 p.m. So often people think they hit a brick wall if they can’t find what they are looking for on Ancestry or Family Search. However, there is a world of records waiting to be discovered offline. Learn what is available, where to search, and who and how to ask.

Unless otherwise specified all Library Sponsored Events will be using the Zoom platform. Prior to the program the Zoom access information will be emailed to you.
