Kayaking Workshop and Poet Laureate at Library

Events at Beacon’s Howland Public Library April 9 and 12

Don Urmston, educational director for the Mid-Hudson Adirondack Mountain Club, will present a kayaking workshop on Thursday, April 9, at 6 p.m. at the Howland Public Library. Participants can learn everything on getting started in kayaking: what gear they’ll need, where to go paddling, kayak safety and choosing a first kayak.

On Sunday, April 12, at 1 p.m., Beacon Poet Laureate Thomas O’Connell will read a variety of poetry at the library, including works by poets who were also librarians, as well as several of his own works, in celebration of April as National Poetry Month.

All events are free and no registration is required. The library is at 313 Main St. in Beacon. For more information, contact Alison Herrero, adult services librarian, at 845-831-1134. To see all upcoming events at the Howland Public Library, go to beaconlibrary.org and click on Calendar.
