Children ages 7-11 are invited to the Howland Public Library on 313 Main St. in Beacon to participate in Origami for Children on Friday, July 12, from 2 to 4 p.m. “Origami Bob” Voelker will teach children and their parents/caregivers (if they wish to stay) how to make beautiful origami creations, starting out simple and getting a little more daring if they wish. Children will learn about the Japanese art of paper-folding in a fun and relaxed way.
Registration is not necessary, but because of space limitations, the library suggests reserving space by contacting Ginny Figlia, head of Youth Services, at [email protected] or 845-831-1134, ext. 103. This program is free, and materials will be supplied. For a schedule of all children’s summer programs and events, click “calendar” on the library’s website, beaconlibrary.org.
