Graphic Novel Book Club
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Let's take a closer look at Graphic Novels and Comics! There's more to them than superheroes. How do you tell stories that say more with pictures than words? Which words do you really need? Well - if you'd like to learn more about this form of storytelling - and maybe create some stories of you own - join us! Open to kids in 3rd grade and up in New City/West Nyack library families.

Registration will begin on Friday, December 1, 2017 at 11:00 AM

Patty Cake Club
10:00 AM - 10:45 AM

Drop in for coffee and cake while the kids have some free play time! This unstructured program is an opportunity to meet with your neighbors, have a chat, and let the little ones get some socializing time in! Parents must supervise their children, as there will be no formal program run by a librarian. We will have age-appropriate toys, puzzles, etc. available for the group. There is limited space, so please come on time or a little early. Hope to see you there!
