We had a fabulous evening – and a huge turnout – for our Reading Stars Fiesta last week. We hosted 41 Peekskill Head Start students and their families. We created art with space stamps, stars, astronauts and planet stickers. We talked about all the cool resources and programs for kids and adults at The Field Library. And then we went on a musical trip to outer space with Flor Bromley! The evening was out of this world!

This program is made possible in part with funds from Westchester Library System’s Family Literacy Mini-Grant Initiative supported by Con Edison.

Thanks to Westchester Library System for all their support, and a special shout out to Stacey Stymiloski and all the fabulous teachers at Peekskill Head Start for visiting the library over the last few weeks! And, of course, thanks to all the families for sharing the evening with us! We hope to see you all back here soon 🙂



We had fun building and exploring at our most recent STEAM TEAM! Here are just a few of the things we created with magnatiles, LEGOs and building cubes. Cool, right?!

Steam Team Junior!

Who says you have to be a big kid to enjoy STEAM?! We had an enthusiastic group of participants at our last Steam Team Junior program: stacking, building and (of course) knocking things down. Look at a few things that they created! Awesome!

The next Steam Team Junior is on Friday, May 17 at 11 am. Join the Steam Team fun!

There was a lot of creativity, design and problem solving at our most recent Mad Science program. Children built (and decorated) wheels, batons, pyramids and even a bouquet of flowers – all out of rolled up newspapers!

Twice the fun today!

Huge thanks to Oakside’s amazing reading team for organizing this program with us.  A shout out to Principal Woodley and the Oakside teachers for helping to spread the word! And a special thank-you to our very dedicated dog teams. We couldn’t do it without you!
