As part of its annual summer session, the Pawling Library is once again sponsoring a program for youngsters where they will learn the basics of news reporting. Library patrons will see these eager reporters at various library functions covering them as they happen! Not only can people read about the events these intrepid reporters cover, they can hear them on Pawling’s local radio – PPR! Simply tune in or go to their Web site to hear these stories live.
For their first assignment, some of these reporters interviewed each other to give the community an introduction as to who they are. The following are their reports.
