Current Children’s Programs

Blast off to learning with our Summer Programs!

This summer, we’re excited to present “A Universe of Stories,” two months of programs designed to help children develop important social and school skills while having fun! We’re introducing some fun new choices, including a weekly slime club, a Teen/Buddy Book Club, and community service for all ages.


We offer educational and fun programs for children 0-10 years old. Differentiation is important to us. That’s why we offer programs for all stages of development–small groups for specific ages. From early literacy story time for toddlers, to slime workshops and STEAM clubs for elementary kids, there’s something for all ages at the Pawling Library.

Summer program registration will run June 10-23, and six weeks of programs kicks off July 8th! For more information on what programs will be available, check out our Summer Programs Guide.

Want to sign up? Due to space restraints, registration is required for most programming. Fill out our Summer Programs Registration Form, either in person or online below, starting June 10th. Register between June 10-23, during the lottery for the best chance at a spot in our programs. Rolling registration as space is available to follow.

Registration for Summer 2019 is by lottery, so though we do our best to accommodate all families a spot in a class is not guaranteed. In planning what programs to enroll in, please take note of age and grade restrictions. If you wish to register a child for a program that they do not qualify for (in terms of age or grade), please contact Children’s Programming Coordinator, Neena McBaer directly.
