BEACON PARKS AND RECREATION AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
Held inside the Elementary Schools for South Ave, J.V. Forrestal, and Sargent.

This program offers more than just child care; the program offers exposure to many different activities. Some activities may be familiar, while some might be new to you and your child. It is our goal to provide a safe and fun recreational experience to all participating children while providing opportunity for enrichment. 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

Time: 5-7pm
Location: Howland Public Library, 313 Main St, Beacon, NY
The Howland Public Library is currently recruiting students to participate in the 14th annual Middle School Battle of the Books, and students to participate in the 3rd annual High School Battle of the Books. Battle of the Books is a nationally recognized literature contest in which young people answer trivia questions based on specific books that they have read during the summer. It is designed to expose young people to good literature, new friendships, and build teamwork and good sportsmanship skills while enjoying friendly competition.

Students will participate in meetings, coaching activities, and practice Battles each week between the end of June and August. Middle School students will meet every Thursday from 5-7pm between June 28th and Aug. 30th. High School students will meet every Tuesday from 5-7pm between June 19th and Aug. 14th. The library will supply the books, team t-shirts, and pizza!  
                                                                                                                              
After practice battles with other libraries, each team will compete in the Regional Battle of the Books competition at Ulster Community College. The Beacon Bees were the Middle School champions in 2010, 2013, and 2015, and the Beacon Buzzers were High School champions in 2017!
 
This fun program is free for participants. The Beacon team is generously funded by Howland Public Library's Friends Group.
