FUN FOR FAMILIES OF ALL AGES
Escape the hustle & bustle and enjoy a peaceful holiday storytime. We’ll read-aloud, sing-along, and create a craft together! No registration required.
The holidays are a time of traditions and the Mitten Tree is one of our favorites! Donate a scarf, hat, or mittens, and you’ll make the winter warmer for children of St. Catherine’s Center in Albany. The Center provides a comprehensive range of human services to families in the area, and is always appreciative of our community’s generosity. Bring your donation to the Youth Services desk and you’ll be entered in our raffle drawing, where lucky winners will take home A Charlie Brown Christmas book and character doll! Donations will be collected through December 13.
Tell Santa Claus what’s in your heart this season, and he’ll write back to you! The Library is a designated drop-off-spot for the “Letters to Santa” program sponsored by the Town of Colonie. Please include your child’s name and address in the letter, and drop it in the box in Youth Services, by December 18th.
On Saturday, December 7 at 6:00pm, we will offer a special production of “A Christmas Carol” by the Hampstead Stage Company. This talented group of actors will bring this classic story to life and is sure to entertain families of all ages! Pick up your free tickets at the Youth Services Desk. Hurry, before they are all gone!
November 18-23, during library hours
Bring the kids over the river and through the woods to Youth Services! We will have free art supplies at the Help Desk for kids of all ages to make and take a Thanksgiving craft. Even younger kids can make a craft with the help of an adult! No registration needed.
