On Long Island, Bookstores and Libraries Expand Their Offerings

“When Marty Schwartz and Melinda Nasti take a vacation, they make a point of finding live-music venues. “We’re really attracted to places with folk singers,” Ms. Nasti said on the day after Christmas, while she and Mr. Schwartz, who live in Port Washington, sat at a corner table in the 20-seat cafe at the Dolphin Bookshop there. They were there not to thumb through a stack of best sellers, but to listen as Fred Hintze, a musician from Lake Panamok, on eastern Long Island, strummed his guitar and sang.” (via NYTimes.com)

Changed by 9/11: Kathryn Heaviside, Research Librarian

Northport Patch – “A deluge of books were published on all aspects of the attacks in the months and years following 9/11–from building design, religion, and politics, to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and the nature of grief. It was Kathryn Heaviside’s job to sort them all out. Heaviside, a research librarian at the Northport branch of the Northport-East Northport Public Library, compiled a two-inch thick binder of informational resources, many of them focused on counseling after trauma and loss. She was all too familiar with the topic.”
