Beech Tree Puppet Theater presents The Crystal Ball, a Grimm’s Fairy Tale. Audiences young and old will be delighted with this magical, musical, colorful rendering of one of Grimm’s classic tales. Sign up for the Summer Reading Program after the show at the summer reading kick off party.
Please note that our library hours have changed in order to be open more nights and Saturday hours.
Our kickoff party for the Summer Reading Program will begin right after the puppet show this Saturday, June 22. Studies show that library summer reading programs will raise student learning levels and help prevent learning losses during the summer months. Prizes for participation.
There are many hiking opportunities near the library, including the Kenape Brook/Ashokan High Point trail. You can access trail maps, including USGS topographical maps on Ulster County’s REConnect website. Click on Trails and Routes and check the boxes for trail heads and hiking trails and the trails will appear in red.
For those who like to explore the woods without a trail, you can also get a permit to hike in the Ashokan Reservoir property across from the library by applying to the DEP. There is a link to the application here.
Please take safety precautions before heading into the woods. Get hiking safety tips here.
Join us for our rollicking children’s story hour of books, crafts, singing, music and movement.
