Yarn Bombers

THURSDAYS, JANUARY  9  - 30  at  4 PM.

YarnGRADES 4 & UP

Beat the winter blahs!  Come and learn the basics of Knit and Crochet (or work on more advanced projects) with instructors Arlene Sandner, Frieda Luxenberg and Maureen Dilleo. Program and materials are free, but registration is required. Co-sponsored by the Clarkstown Family Resource Center.

 

December is fun......but then comes January!

The gifts have been forgotten, the confetti has been vacuumed up and the long winter looms ahead. Now what?  Head over to the library, of course!  Our family musical programs are especially handy for shakin' out the cobwebs.  Whether it's in the big meeting room with Mr. Kurt, the smaller storytime room in a Matty Roxx class, or stompin' with the whole family during Romper Room, you will be energized! Don't forget about storytime - we offer a 10am and 1:30pm session every Tuesday in January - and family pajama storytime on Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm on January 8th and 22nd.  Need more?  We've got a drop-in Boredom Busters program each Friday at 4:00pm as well as a sprinkling of crafts!  Check on the children's event tab at the top of this page for more details for all our upcoming programs.  Of course, we have new books and dvds to take home anytime.  Drop by the children's reference desk for help in choosing the right programs and materials for your family.  We look forward to seeing you!

I. General Comments

I congratulate Ralph Sabatini, Jeffrey Sasson, and David Zuckerberg on their election to the New City Library Board of Trustees.  The huge voter turnout reflects the community’s deep interest in the Library.
