Middleburgh Library Presents Musician Tom Prasada-Rao October 6th

Written By Editor on 9/21/16 | 9/21/16

The Middleburgh Library is presenting musician Tom Prasada-Rao on October 6th at 7pm as part of its "Not so Quiet Concert Series."

Tom Prasada-Rao is a musician's musician - an unassuming presence on the folk scene since the early nineties. His voice belies his musicianship and his extraordinary songs. From Rishi’s Garden with its homage to Ravi Shankar to the groove of Sleeping Beauty , Tom’s music is melodic, ambitious, and reverent. He's starting to tour again after being featured last year on the nationally syndicated TV show Troubadour Texas.

In the fall of 2007 Tom quit the road to produce records, raise two stepdaughters, and walk a rather large Golden Doodle named Thurman twice a day. In addition to producing, he took a job teaching music at White Rock Montessori in Dallas - TPR was formerly the songwriting teacher at The University of Virginia’s Young Writer's Workshops - where he created the songwriting curriculum and taught for eight years.

From headlining major festivals 15 years ago, to the relative obscurity of a recording studio - Tom continued to mature as an artist. That work blossomed into an impressive resume of producing credits as well as cuts (his songs covered by other artists). The year (2014) marks Tom’s departure from his adopted life and his return to the road. His new release "ADAGIO" - features bass guitar legend  Chuck Rainey, and piano virtuoso Julie Bonk who was Norah Jones teacher - all masterfully produced by Jagoda...

This event is made possible (in part) with public funds from the Decentralization Program and the New York State Council on the Arts, administered through the Community Arts Grants Program by the Greene County Council on the Arts.  Tickets are available at the door.   A $10.00 donation is suggested.  Please use back entrance.

Three Running for Middleburgh Library Board

Written By Cicero on 4/22/15 | 4/22/15

On April 28th, 2015, the Middleburgh Library will hold a Budget and Trustee vote  from noon to 8 p.m. at the Middleburgh Library, 323 Main Street, Middleburgh.  Two vacant trustee seats will be filled by popular vote from three candidates running for the board.  Find out a little bit more about each candidate below:
Debra Bechtold:  I have been a Middleburgh resident for 27 years. My husband Mark works for MCS, my son Ryan is a 2014 graduate of MCS and son Cameron is in the Class of 2016.  I enjoy being involved with the community. Over the past 20 years I have coached, been involved with the Booster Club and operating the game clock at basketball games. I am also involved with Cornell Cooperative Extension, Schoharie County, as a Master Gardener.
I am the Marketing Director for Cobleskill Auxiliary Services, Inc. at SUNY Cobleskill.  I have also been involved in the Graphic Arts field over 25 years. One of my pet projects at the moment is showing the world Schoharie Valley with Visions of Schoharie Valley (facebook).

The library has always been important to our family and I want to be a part of helping it continue to grow and evolve into a larger part of the community.

Cathleen Berry and her other half, stained-glass artist Robert KarlesKent, moved to Schoharie County in January 2013 to help support the flood-recovery efforts in the county. Cathleen runs Grindstone Press & Graphics, located in Middleburgh. The “press” side of her company specializes in publishing of quality children’s books, educational cookbooks, back-to-basics living, and small-business image. The “graphics” half focuses on design and illustration for print and online use.


Last year, she designed and produced The Seasons of Schoharie County, an independent tourism magazine she distributed to surrounding counties to spotlight some of the hidden gems of our county. Cathleen donates her time and graphics abilities to local nonprofits and helps local businesses develop new marketing ideas.

In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, baking, and spoiling their rescue cats.

As a member of the Middleburgh Library Board of Trustees, Cathleen will bring her enthusiasm, creativity, and “why not?” attitude to the table.


Veronica Lindsey:  I moved to the state of New York in 1976 from Las Vegas, NV to attend high school in Cobleskill. I graduated in 1980 and also attended SUNY Cobleskill and graduated in 1982 with an AAS in Accounting.

I have worked several jobs, over the years. The main occupations were as administrative assistant for the Cobleskill Campus Child Care Center until 1990 when I took a job with the State Insurance Fund. By 1991 I took a promotion and began working for the Dept. of Taxation and Finance in Albany, where I currently work as a tax regulations specialist I. I work with corporate tax forms, updating them based on new legislation, etc.

I learned to read when I was 3 (from the Sunday funnies) and have never stopped. I usually have 2 or 3 books going at a time, plus an audio book.  Since I became a member of Middleburgh Library I have borrowed many books, as I’m sure my account will show. They know me now when I walk in and ask if they have a book for me!

I’m also very interested in genealogy. I’ve been using ancestry.com for several years now and have thousands of individuals in my tree. I haven’t used the library’s genealogy room yet, but plan to in the future. In fact, I’m attending a workshop tonight at the library to learn about what I need to do to become a member of Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). I have many ancestors on my father’s side of the family that lived in New York and in Schoharie County. The ancestor that I plan to use to become a member of DAR lived in Schoharie County and was a sharp-shooter for the Black-Plumed Soldiers, Charles Carl Neer.



I’m looking to get more involved in the library and the community.

Two Seats Open on Middleburgh Library Board

Written By Cicero on 3/10/15 | 3/10/15


With the retirement of two of its longest serving members fast approaching, the Middleburgh Board of Trustees is in need of a few good people to step up to the plate.

That was the message Library Director Teresa Pavoldi delivered to board members on Monday night, as neither of the soon to be open seats have received much interest from the general public since the petition process began on February 28.

Requiring only twenty-five signatures from residents of the Middleburgh Central School District, the trustee petition needs to be submitted by Saturday, March 28th to ensure placement of its candidate on the Tuesday, April 28 library ballot. 

Anyone over the age of eighteen and residing in the school district can pick up a petition for either open position, which have been caused by the term-limiting of longtime Trustee Sarah Beekman and the retirement of Trustee Jim Spencer. 

Located at 323 Main Street interested residents may pick up a petition at the library's front desk during its hours of operation. 

The Middleburgh Library Board of Trustees meets monthly on the second Monday at 6:30 pm in the Community Room.
