This week’s Tip contains sources for some common NYS legal forms–and you’ll also find contacts for all of the courts in the State. Hopefully you won’t have a need to tangle with the legal system –for good or bad reasons– since it’s a complicated arena, but if you do, it’s good to have a reliable place to turn for needed information!

Capping off the library’s month-long display celebrating Black History Month, this Tip showcases books about some lesser-known people who made their mark upon society. The link at the end is really worth a look–uncovering fascinating photographs in the NYT archive, and chronicling many unknown events involving some of our country’s most prominent African-American citizens.

“If you aren’t part of the solution, you’re part of the problem”… This famous old saying is a bit brash, but there is a LOT to be said in favor of volunteering your services in the community! This week’s Tip steers you to some of the possibilities in the Hudson Valley area. It is amazing how thinking and giving of yourself to others can actually come back to you with benefits for your own well-being. Perhaps a kinder, gentler saying–“it is better to give than to receive” is more apt.
