There is an unexpired term with one year remaining on the Town of Ulster Library Board, which is a great introduction or opportunity to try out being a library trustee. This is an exciting time at the library, filled with teamwork, growth, improvements to the building and expanded services, materials and programming!

Marcy Goulart is an intuitive psychic who has been reading the tarot cards for over forty years. Her list of clients would read like the who's who in People Magazine. Among her clients are major industrialists, rock stars, leaders of fortune 500 companies, writers, politicians, and show business greats.
