Known as the “Cheers” of Bookstores, the Bookworm in Highlands is affiliated with the Hudson Library: all books are donated; all staff are volunteers; and all funds go to help support the library. More than a retail store, we are a community service offering carefully sorted donated books to provide the best quality at a used bookstore price.
Lighthouses have guided mariners to safety for thousands of years and in the process have become symbols of hope, romance and mystery. Although these magnificent towers have been an integral part of maritime navigation for centuries, their purpose and reason for existence has been lost to the march of technology. This lecture will cover lighthouse history, how they function and project light and the lives of lighthouse keepers.
