Summer Readers Built a Better World!

The Summer Reading Program kids were VERY busy this summer! They built birdhouses, wigglebots, rubberband racers, solar ovens, had the Catskill Puppet Theater, Aline Newman and her "N Character Program, painted butterflies, enjoyed Bells & Motley on the Erie Canal, and got to play around with Dig "N Push Excavating Equipment!  (Not to mention they were very busy trying to read 2000 books together as a team....) They were just short of their goal, so the kids received pies in the face at our Party at the Park.

Bluebird Program and Nest Box Building

John Rogers, (a specialist on our New York State bird) will be here on April 8th at 1:30 with a delightful Powerpoint Presentation on bluebirds.  The program should take about 45 minutes and is free to all. Then all are welcome to stay and  build their own bluebird nesting box to take home.  Each nesting kit will be $9.00, and should be easy to complete in about 30 minutes.  This is an excellent program for families, but children under 12 should have an adult to help them with construction.
