Childrens, tween, and teen programs in UHLS libraries are now more accessible than ever! Libraries in Upper Hudson Library System have pooled their programs in one program calendar, available at http://events-ys.uhls.org/. Users can search by date, location, or age categories.
Public libraries offer scores of activities during summer months to interest kids and teens in reading and help them combat summer learning loss. Kids who dont read much over the summer can lose significant skills and return to school behind their peers. The joint program calendar makes finding a fun, free library event in UHLS libraries for children easy for parents.
