Events at the Kensington Library

As the weather gets colder in New York, visiting your local public library can provide a wonderful indoor activity.

The Kensington Library offers several programs, in addition to books. For children and babies, there is Toddler Time; Teen Tech Time for teenagers; and Homework Help for school-age children.

Unique lectures and educational activities are also offered weekly.

On Wednesday, December 12th, a class on American Sign Language will be featured. On the same day, a musical Hanukah celebration will take place at the library. That evening, a knitting and crocheting class will be offered.

Stop by the library to see for yourself...books are only the beginning!

Thank you to the Kensington Stewards

The Kensington Stewards are a neighborhood group that recently organized a popular event.

The event, which was organized for the third year in a row, celebrated the Day of the Dead which honors deceased ancestors. The event was held at PS 179 on Avenue C and included activities, performances, and music.

Traditional Mexican dancers and musicians from the band Mariachi Fiesta performed, and free food was served during this five-hour fiesta. Child-friendly activities including face painting and dancing were part of the fun.

The menu included traditional Mexican dishes such as tacos, tamales, Mexican sweet bread, and arroz con leche.

The event was appreciated, thanks to the Kensington Stewards.
