About the Greenville Resource Center:
Since many people in the Minsink Valley School District don't have access to a real library, the Greenville Resource Center (GRC)
was established to provide as many library resources as we can.Although we have no funding, we have a group of volunteers,
donations of money and items for our shelves, and a beautiful building the Town of Greenville has provided- and we have a lot to
You can borrow from a huge selection of fiction and non-fiction books for all ages,books on tape,videos and dvds.We have a
collection of CDs. Children can come to story hours, and have the experience of taking home an armload of new books to enjoy.
We have a computer with internet access available for people who don't have one at home. Anyone in the Minisink Valley School
System can use the GRC - there are no charges for anyone.
On April 20th, 2004, a meeting was held in the Greenville Town Hall. In attendance were members of the community, frustrated by
the lack of library services in the Minisink School District. Those present came with their sleeves rolled up, pencils in hand and a
determination to come up with an alternative plan for the present. The idea of a volunteer library was born.
Mary Hossann, wife of Greenville Supervisor, Red Hossann, suggested using the vacant "old" town hall on Mountain Road. The
building, Greenville's original two-room schoolhouse, had undergone renovations under the previous supervisor, but became vacant
after the new town hall was built. It was an historical building, in a state of deterioration. Supervisor Red Hossann approved the
idea, as did the Greenville Town Board.
The Greenville Resource Center was born!
Our original committee remains the driving force behind the life of the center. Mary Hossann, her son Curtis Hossann, Susan
Shapiro, Judy Cramer, Marie Ewanciw, Deb Lain, Jo Aiello, Peg Costic, and Ruth Frank, ran with the idea and got to work.
On May 15th, 2004, clean up and restoration began. The appointed committee, and other members of the community started
scrubbing and repairing.
