Each day, the children are dismissed from their classroom to the gymnasium, where they have about 30 minutes of free play followed by a snack. Children select their activities each day. From 4 to 4:50 is the first activity period, followed by a second 50-minute activity period. Scheduled activities are complete by 5:45. Parents are welcome to pick their child up any time prior to 6 pm.

Students can contribute art, photography, poetry, short stories, comics, fan fiction, and any anything else you can think of. Zines can be about whatever you are interested in. The Art & Zine Club will meet monthly to work on individual and collaborative zines. Members participate in every step of the process from creation and editing to printing and distribution. Workshop topics will include new art and book making techniques as well as the occasional guest artist. The zines created by the group will be shared with the community and become part of the collection of the library. There will also be opportunities to trade zines with other library zine clubs in the area and across the country as well as a field trip to the zine library at SUNY New Paltz.  All supplies are provided; no experience necessary. 

Students can join at any time. To register or for more information, contact Michelle at community@beaconlibrary.org  or 845-831-1134, x101. The Howland Public Library is located at 313 Main Street, Beacon, NY. To find out more about programs for teens at the library go to www.beaconlibrary.org
