Students can sign up for the first three by registering at the West Hurley Library (online or call 845-679-6405) and the second three by calling the Hurley Library (845-338-2092).

These classes are funded by a New York State Grant, the Town of Hurley, the Hurley Library, and the West Hurley Library.
