Programs scheduled for Garrison and Beacon

Kite enthusiast Charles Stewart will lead the decoration and assembly of diamond-shaped kites at the Desmond-Fish Library in Garrison at 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 23, in a program for adults and children age 7 and older who are accompanied by an adult, and for adults at the Howland Public Library at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, July 27. Each participant will receive a kite; all supplies are included.

Stewart, who the New York Daily News once called “The Kite Whisperer,” will share the basics of  “kite theory”: how and why they fly, why wind flies the kite (not the owner), and what to do when there isn’t enough wind for lift.

Both programs are free, but registration is required. Call the Desmond-Fish at 845-424-3020 or the Howland at 845-831-1134.
