Animals Meet Zoom
The South Fork Natural History Museum and Nature Center in Bridgehampton will introduce its amphibian residents via Zoom on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. During the all-ages program, naturalists will offer lessons on habits and habitats, diets, and more. Registration is at sofo.org.

Counting Down to 2021
Bridgehampton's Children's Museum of the East End will have a virtual ball drop at noon today. Children can also submit their new year's resolutions, to be featured in a special collection on New Year's Day, at cmee.org/events/countdown-to-the-countdown.

The John Jermain Memorial Library in Sag Harbor will also celebrate "Noon Year's Eve" with activities starting at 11:30 a.m. today, ideal for kids with bedtimes earlier than midnight. A sign-up link is at johnjermain.org.

Get Your Dance On
On Tuesdays in January, the A&G Dance Company will have a variety of in-person classes at the Southampton Cultural Center. An introductory class on creative movement for 3-to-5-year-olds is at 4 p.m., and there are classes in hip-hop, tap, and contemporary dance styles from 4:45 to 7 for kids ages 6 and up. The three classes are $150 together, or $60 for each individual style. Class sizes are limited, masks are required, and sign-up is at scc-arts.org.

Whose Sweater Is Ugliest?
The East Hampton Library is holding an ugly sweater contest today, and today only, for high school students. Teens who live in the library district (East Hampton, Springs, or Wainscott) can submit photos by 3 p.m. to [email protected] for a chance to win a library sweatshirt.

Also at the library, a children's program all about birds, and which species can be found locally, will take place next Thursday at 4 p.m., hosted by a representative from the Quogue Wildlife Refuge. Page Turners, a virtual book discussion group for kids in grades six, seven, and eight, will also meet next Thursday at 4 p.m. Sign-up is at easthamptonlibrary.org.

Bedtime Stories and Mysteries
The Montauk Library's series of bedtime stories with a winter theme continues online on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. At John Jermain, the teen mystery book club will be reading "Truly Devious" by Maureen Johnson this month. The discussion will take place online on Jan. 13 at 7 p.m.
