Programs for Children at Desmond-Fish

Upcoming children’s programs at the Desmond-Fish Library offer a warm respite from outdoor activities.

Music and Movement for toddlers with Gabriella Johnson and Polly Townsend begins on Jan. 9 at 10:15 a.m. in the library’s program room. Children between 6 months and 4 years of age and their caregivers sing along with Johnson and Townsend, play instruments and move to simple songs. They also will play with the library’s parachute and the toys and climbing structures in the program room.

The craft hour each Tuesday at 4 p.m. features crafts like felting and making things with fabric and yarn. A nutritious snack is provided for the children.

The story hour for preschool-age children is held each Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. Children’s Librarian Townsend reads several stories, and then the children do a related craft. This program continues every Wednesday except during school vacations.

The Desmond-Fish Library is located at 472 Route 403 in Garrison. For more information, call 845-424-3020 or visit the website,
