Milne Library to Host “Reflections on the River”

Milne Library to Host “Reflections on the River”bowlby no. 3

During the month of September, the Hoosic River Watershed Association will present “Reflections on the River,” an exhibition of works by local artists.  The Milne Library in Williamstown will host the show.  For many years HooRWA has staged “Riverworks” along the river trails at Cole Field.  The pieces shown at “Riverworks” have primarily been sculptures and installations, designed to be exhibited temporarily in an outdoor environment.

“Reflections on the River” will give artists who work primarily in two dimensions an opportunity to present their responses to the beautiful Hoosic River in paintings, prints, photographs, and collages.  More than twenty artists will display their works at the library during September.  During the show information will be available explaining HooRWA’s efforts to protect the river and to make it more accessible to our communities.

Milne Library honors Priscilla Coulter

The Milne Library staff were deeply saddened to hear about the passing of one of our oldest working staff members, Priscilla Coulter. Priscilla had been working at the library for almost 20 years when she had to take a leave for her health in 2016. Prior to that, Priscilla was a very hard worker, never missing a day at the library. She handled most of our inter-library loans, as well as working at the circulation desk in the afternoons.

Priscilla was a graduate of Russell Sage College in New York, and had been a gym teacher at a private secondary school in New York City, enjoying nights out at the opera. She was an avid outdoor hiker and gardener. She had two daughters and a son that she raised in Williamstown.

We will miss Priscilla.priscilla
