We are going to be offering a selection of exciting online and virtual programming – special events, reading challenges, fun activities, and more – throughout the summer months from June 29th through August 31st. We have combined resources with the other libraries in Ulster County to offer you virtual events.
Children who participate in this year’s program will work on a BINGO card. Contact us at 845-679-6405 to get a copy of your BINGO card and stickers. We can either mail them to you or provide them through curbside pickup.
Point your browser to Summer Reading 2020. You will find all of the information you need for your challenge squares as well as how to access the virtual events by ScienceTellers and PageTurners. Families can view these shows for several weeks online after they premier.
