Free Programs at New Dorp Library: July 2011


July is here and Independence Day isn't the only time you'll see sparks! Head over to New Dorp Library and get involved in some of our amazing programs for all ages, without the fear of being burned by a sparkler!

This month we will be continuing our regular Teen programs and will feature some special additions for adults and children! For the kiddies we'll have a puppet show, a pajama night, and a family game day! Adults who might need a little extra help in learning about computers can sign up for one of our Internet courses, but if you're feeling social or creative, we have a program for that too!

4th of July., Digital ID 1587778, New York Public Library

For Children:

On July 13 at 2 p.m., we will have Family Game Day! For ages five years and older and their parents/caregivers. Enjoy playing board games, recycled bottle "bowling," and word puzzles! Pre-registration is required and will start one week before the July 6 event. 

Feel like taking in a show? Why don't you join us for our Little Red Riding Hood puppet show! It will take place Thursday, July 21 at 2 p.m., and is recommended for ages four and older.

Have fun at the Library in your pajamas on Thursday, July 28 at 6 p.m. Wear your pajamas to New Dorp Library and enjoy stories, action rhymes, and more!
