In May, libraries celebrate National Flower Month, National Latino Book Month, National Family Wellness Month, National Backyard Games Month, and National Get Caught Reading Month, all of which are keeping Julie Anne Korpi, the Montauk Library’s new children’s librarian, very busy.
“There are a lot of national months that people don’t know about,” Ms. Korpi said.
Some Montauk residents say the dim lighting in the hamlet’s business district is unsafe, and they want the town to turn up the lights downtown.
At St. Therese
A family Christmas concert will be held at St. Therese of Lisieux Catholic Church on Sunday at 5 p.m. The adult and children’s choir will be singing holiday tunes, some solo. The audience will be invited to join a sing-along of traditional carols.
Christmas Eve services will be held at 4:30 p.m. and midnight at St. Therese, and in Spanish at 7 p.m. On Christmas Day, Masses will be celebrated at 8:30 and 10:30 a.m.
A good-sized crowd turned out to support Rob Astorino, the Westchester County executive who is running for governor on the Republican and Conservative lines, at East by Northeast restaurant in Montauk on Thursday evening.
Mr. Astorino, a former radio producer who lives in Mount Pleasant, N.Y., is making a bid against Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, a Democrat, in November. He announced his candidacy in March, and accepted the Republican nomination in May. He is in his second term as Westchester County executive.
