Butterfield Library will host the Ninth Annual Big Truck Day from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 1. This fun, family event is affordable for everyone — admission is a donation.

Children are invited to climb on trucks, backhoes and cranes — and even to beep the horn (once please). The fire department and ambulance corps will demonstrate equipment and talk about their volunteer organizations.

The library is partnering with the Cold Spring Fire Company for a Big Breakfast at the fire house. Kids eat free with a donation to the library. Donations include Big Truck Day admission. Eat breakfast with fire trucks from 8 to 11 a.m., and receive a Big Truck Day surprise.

Representatives from the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department will register children in the Operation Safe Child ID Card Program. Each card contains the child’s name, biographical information and a fingerprint image of both index fingers.

Visit with furry guests from the Famous Hudson Valley Llamas. (Please note: Llamas are afraid of dogs — please leave pets at home.) Enjoy the jumpy castle, games, and concessions and try your luck at winning raffle prizes. Vote for your favorite bookmark design — winners will be announced at the event. Peek at the Summer Reading Program, Fizz, Boom, Read!, and register to be part of a drawing. Event proceeds benefit Butterfield Library.

Visit or call 845-265-3040. The library is located at 10 Morris Ave., Cold Spring.
