Art Camp

The Golden Eagle in East Hampton will hold a winter art camp during the February school break, with different projects planned every day from Feb. 21 through 26. From creating their own animal tracks to sculpting with found materials, snowflake block printing, and building dioramas, kids taking part in these creative arts workshops for ages 6 and up will have plenty to explore. The camp meets from 10 a.m. to noon. The cost is $95 per day or $475 for six days. Registration is at


For Young Adults

In Bridgehampton, the Hampton Library’s anime club on Monday from 3:30 to 5 p.m. will give kids in sixth grade and up a chance to watch, talk about, and make crafts related to anime and manga. On Tuesday during those hours, kids of that age can test their knowledge of Black history in a trivia contest with prizes. The library’s council of young adults will meet to talk out, publicize, and organize future teen programs next Thursday at 3:30 p.m.


Double-Feature Saturday

A movie double-feature is on tap for teens on Saturday at the John Jermain Memorial Library in Sag Harbor. At 11:30 a.m., it’ll be “Everything, Everything,” about an 18-year-old with an illness that keeps her from leaving the protection of home, but the boy next store shows her the promise of something more. Next up, at 1:15, comes “The Sun Is Also a Star,” about two teens brought together by chance who spend an unforgettable day together. Both movies are rated PG-13.

The folks at the Quogue Wildlife Refuge will bring a program on bats — complete with skeletons and a fossil replica — to the library next Thursday at 4:30 p.m. Kids will learn about bat anatomy, their physical adaptations, and why they are important.

This week at John Jermain there are Valentine’s Day story times tomorrow and Sunday at 11 a.m. for ages 1 to 4, next Thursday kids up to age 8 are invited to wear pajamas to a story time at 7 p.m., and on Friday, Feb. 18, at 11 a.m., there’s a reading of “Will You Be My Friend?”

Also on Friday, Feb. 18, an instructor will lead students in different painting techniques as they work on scenes with winter birds at 4:30 p.m. Advance sign-up is required for all programs.


For the Youngest

There’s fun in store for young visitors to the East Hampton Library this week. On Tuesday, a stuffed dinosaur workshop and a dinosaur story time for kids 3 and up starts at 4 p.m. “Cloud” dough is in the forecast on Wednesday at 4 after a story about clouds for ages 3 to 6, and next Thursday a STEM program for that age group will have a “Frozen” theme as little ones make their own “snow” at 4 p.m.

At the Amagansett Library, Evan Harris will lead a valentine story and craft time for all ages on Saturday at 11 a.m.


Slime, Spaghetti, Sewing

STEM, team-building, sewing, and jumping rope are some of Project Most’s offerings at the Neighborhood House in East Hampton this week. Saturday kicks off at 9 a.m. with jump rope and double Dutch games for kindergartners through third graders. At 10:30 a.m., a painted dinosaur and truck workshop for 3 and 4-year-olds has a STEM component. So too does a slime and bouncy ball workshop for kindergartners through third graders at noon. At 10 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. on Saturday it’s hat sewing for ages 6 and up. Team-building games for ages 6 to 12 are in store at 11, and creative arts and crafts for those in kindergarten through third grade happen at 2:15 p.m. The cost for the 11 a.m. games session is $15; all others cost $20.

On Tuesday afternoon, kids in kindergarten through third grade who join this week’s Seuss and Sous program will listen to a reading of “The Spaghetti-Slurping Sewer Serpent” by Laura Ripes and then make fresh hand-cranked pasta. The program starts at 3:45 and costs $20.
