Altamont Library Notes for Thursday, August 1, 2013
The Altamont Free Library’s summer staff continues to provide exciting and interesting programs for the young people of the village and beyond.
Two upcoming events are devoted to worms. On Tuesday, Aug. 6, at 10:30 a.m. participants will be making worms (not real ones) and racing worms (real ones). Take note, kids will not race against worms. It’s worm against worm, as it should be.
The next day, Wednesday, Aug. 7, at 3:30 p.m., elementary school age kids will be building worm habitats. Come empty handed and we’ll send you home with a worm colony. Library treasurer and Knox farm girl Betty Ketcham will show the way.
Finally, for kids 10 and over, visit us on Friday, Aug. 2 at 3:30 p.m. We’ll be making our own scratch-off lotto tickets. You can’t win if you don’t play. That’s not our motto, but it’s still true.
The last concert of the summer series is this coming Tuesday at 7 p.m. Scott Hopkins is back, this time with Bear Trap, a country band.
Remember the farmer’s market
Along with the library, another institution occupies the beautifully rebuilt and refurbished former Delaware and Hudson Train Station. We’re referring, of course, to the farmer’s market, and here is a brief review: The sweet corn is very, very good.
