Fall Programs

The fall session of programs will run from September 24 – November 17. Programs are for ages 10-18 unless otherwise noted. Registration will run from September 10 – September 19.

When you fill out your registration sheet, you will be asked to rank each program you are interested in in order of the ones you most want to do to least want to do. In the event that a program has a wait list, the teens who indicated the highest level of interest will be given priority.

You will be notified of which programs you are enrolled in on September 21. Anyone who does not have their registration sheet in by then can still enroll in programs as space is available, or be placed on the wait list for programs at capacity.

You can register by:

  • Coming into the library to fill out the form
  • Calling the library at (845) 855-3444
  • Emailing Kate at
