Stargazers Wanted!

Depauville Free Library is working with local, sidewalk astronomer, Tom Aiken, to organize looks into the night sky.

We are asking that interested stargazers send their email addresses to deplib@ncls.org so we can send out word when and where Tom will be setting up his telescope. Since good observations depend upon good weather conditions, emails are the best way to organize a star party at a moments notice.

Tom Aiken and his Dobsonian telescope that took him 20 years to build, have logged many hours introducing people to celestial wonders. The telescope uses a mirrored system as opposed to lenses and is designed to be portable and with a large aperture. It’s good for observing dim, deep sky objects, like the belts, the rings, around Saturn and the moons circling around the planets.

Set up like a gun turret, with a simple mount that rotates vertically and horizontially, the Dobsonian telescope, first created by John Dobson in the 1960s, allows side-to-side motion to vary the azimuth or compass bearing in any direction and up-and-down flexibility to vary the altitude or angle of elevation of the insturment.

You can bring your own telescope or binochulars, too. Which ever you decide, the  following are some of the highlights we hope to observe in the upcoming year.

Personalized Computer Classes @ Depauville Library

Computer skills are very important in today’s world and Depauville Free Library is offering training sessions for anyone interested in operating a computer or exploring the Internet. Whether you are working on your resume or still trying to find the "on/off" switch, these training sessions can give you the help you need.

Instruction is free and will be one-on-one or one-on-two, (so you won’t have to go it alone!) and the sessions will be scheduled to accommodate your day as long as they fall within library hours.

Training will be tailored to what you want to learn: computer basics, Microsoft Word, introduction to using the Internet, searching the Internet, email, handling digital photos, writing a resume, online job searching, social network basics, as well as online library services like reference and ebooks.

Please call the Depauville Library at 686-3299 to find out more about the classes we are offering and to set up a time.

“The Changing Years A History of Depauville”

“The Changing Years A History of Depauville” was first researched, written, and printed in 1976 by members of the Depauville Bicentennial Committee wishing to celebrate the important milestone with a project that would be a legacy to future generations.

The material submitted far exceeded their expectations. In addition to strictly historical information, it included accounts of numerous heart-warming moments and human-interest incidents in the lives of Depauville residents, past and present.

The 1976 book was compiled from early records of churches and organizations, wills, deeds, obituaries, census records, and diaries. Old scrapbooks revealed a wealth of information and recollections of older Depauville residents provided tremendous help in regard to the history of local buildings.

In 2004, responding to continued interest and demand for the hamlet’s history and with copies of the 1976 book no longer available, “The Changing Years”, was reprinted. The original manuscript was kept unchanged but an addendum was added covering the years 1975 to 2000.

Copies of “The Changing Years A History of Depauville” can be purchased for $15. They are available at the Depauville Free Library, 32333 County Route 179, Depauville, NY 13632. For further ordering information please call 315-686-3299 or email, deplib@ncls.org.
