The exhibit Pride & Passion: The African-American Baseball Experience opens tomorrow at the Poughkeepsie Public Library.

This nationally touring exhibition, which chronicles the remarkable history of baseball’s Negro leagues and the challenges and successes of African-American baseball players, opens today in Library’s Rotunda area.

An accompanying program series features lectures that relate the history of pre-integration baseball and the days leading to Jackie Robinson’s efforts to break the color barrier in America’s national pastime.

Police in the Vermont town of Barton say burglars didn't steal any books when they broke into the town library, but they rearranged the furniture.

Vermont State Police say the furniture was stacked in the center of the library floor in a pyramid about 20 feet high. Other furniture was stacked on top of bookshelves sometime between Monday night and Tuesday midmorning.

The only thing missing was a date stamp used to check out books.

Police say nothing appeared to have been broken or vandalized and there was no sign of a forced entry.
