Carl Viggiani | Jazz & Java | 7:30-9:30 a.m., Thursday, September 13 & Friday, September 14
Start your morning at the Library’s Everyday Healthy Café with jazz duo HRIDAYA. Pianist and composer Carl Viggiani and drummer Jon Doty present a program of original compositions and improvisations that are influenced by Zen meditation practice.

Hands On Jazz for Families | 2:00 – 4:00 p.m., Saturday, September 15
Join teachers from The Music Conservatory of Westchester in our auditorium for a participatory event.

Healthy Relationships for Teens

Next Monday, September 17 at 4:00 p.m. in the Edge, teens will be able to take a workshop on healthy relationships. This workshop will help teens to identify and examine what behaviors are controlling or damaging in relationships.

This educational workshop is offered by Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic. Refreshments will be served. No registration is required.

STEM Programs Expand in The Trove

Due to demand, the Trove is expanding its STEM-related programs.  Starting in October, the popular Tech Tuesday program will become two concurrent offerings - Tech Tuesday for Grades 1-3 and Tech Tuesday for Grades 4-6. Also beginning in October, the monthly LEGO Club, which has already split into Grades 1-3 and Grades 4-6 sessions to accommodate more participants, will become STEM project based for the Grades 4-6 programs. An additional program, STEM Buddies, is in the works which is modeled after the Trove's summer Reading Buddies and will have teen volunteers and college students working with small groups of younger children on STEM-related activities.

What is STEM?  It stands for Science Technology Engineering and Math, and is an approach to providing a well-rounded, forward-looking education through a foundation for skills for many job opportunities, and an integrated curriculum rich with creativity, exploration and inquiry.  For more information about the what and why behind STEM education, check out this article  from STEAM Powered Family, a site with activities and resources you can use with your kids at home.
