Poetry Inspired by Astronomy

Guild Hall is partnering with the Hamptons Observatory for an evening of poetry readings inspired by the stars, sun, and planets. Appropriate for high school-age students, it's a perfect way to celebrate National Poetry Month. "A Sky Full of Poems" is at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, and registration is online at

Appreciating Planet Earth

On Tuesday at 10:30 a.m., the John Jermain Memorial Library's online story-and-craft hour will focus on Planet Earth. Kids ages 2 to 5 can hear stories celebrating our planet, and then will do a simple craft using common household materials. This week's session will require a paper plate and blue and green washable markers. Signup is via the events calendar at

Art With a Message

The East Hampton Library's teen take-and-make art project this weekend is beaded bracelets, with letter beads to spell positive messages in the process. The finished bracelets will be traded with other participants. Kits can be picked up between 2:30 and 4:45 p.m. tomorrow. Those who return their creations to the library by Monday will earn community service hours.
