Libraries to kick off several programs in August

Posted: Friday, July 28, 2017

The early weeks of August will usher in more than a few programs to both the Huntington and Markle Libraries. Teens can “Paint it like Pollock” in a painting workshop Saturday, August 5 at 2 p.m. in Markle and Saturday, August 19 at 2 p.m. in Huntington. Participants will learn about the life and works of artist Jackson Pollock.

Both the Huntington and Markle Libraries will host Back to School Bling crafting sessions for teens. Come to the Markle Library Monday, August 7 or the Huntington Library Tuesday, August 8, both from 2 to 4 p.m., to jazz up those new notebooks, learn how to make book covers, make locker magnets and craft some new keychains.

The Huntington and Markle Libraries will also be launching a Kids Cooking series in August. The first session will be Kids Cooking: Five Minute Snacks and will get children ages 8 to 12 involved in making quick, tasty and easy snacks such as bite-sized pizzas, fruit dip, quesadillas and more. Markle’s session takes place Monday, August 7 at 4:30 p.m., with Huntington’s taking place August 14 at 4:30 p.m.

The Huntington Library will kick off a Historical Fiction Discussion Series Saturday, August 12 at 2 p.m. Meeting every 2nd Saturday, the series is for all ages and encourages participants to read any book of their choice involving the topical period and come excited to share what they’ve learned. This is a great opportunity for families to participate in a club together!
