Local library to host slumber party with a twist

June 28, 2017 by  

A special sleepover has been planned for the East Northport area that will see kids and their favorite stuffed toys enjoying night out at the library.

Kids, siblings, and parents alike are welcome to attend the Stuffed Animal Sleepover. Those who participate will come to the library on a Friday night along with their fuzzy friend, and once everyone has arrived, they will be treated to a reading of a special story that has been selected just for the occasion.

When it’s time for the evening to draw to a close, the people will go home for the night, but their stuffed companions will have free run of the facility. The kids who took part will have a chance to hear all about their adventures when they come to pick them up the next afternoon at 1:00 pm. This activity is being offered on a free-of-charge basis, and while registration isn’t necessary, the number of spaces available is limited. Digital copying can be utilized to make copies of coloring sheets and other handouts that can be used during a function like this.

This evening of after-hours library fun has been planned for July 14 from 7:00 pm until 7:30 pm, and the children will come back at 1:00 pm the next day to pick up their toy and find out about how they spent the night. Half an hour has been allotted for this portion of the activity, and more information can be found on the Northport-East Northport Public Library’s website.

Locals invited to lend Crab Meadow Beach a helping hand

December 30, 2016 by  

There are many beaches around Long Island, and a call has gone out to East Northport residents to do their part to help keep their local beach clean.

The Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation will be organizing a cleanup of Crab Meadow Beach in Huntington. Those who come out will pick up trash and other marine debris, which will be bagged up and removed for disposal. It is suggested that heavy gloves, sturdy shoes, and warm clothes be worn by the participants.

The cleanup efforts are part of the organization’s larger goal of protecting the area’s marine ecosystems. Garbage and other debris that winds up on a beach can be harmful to ocean life such as fish, birds, and sea turtles, so by lending a hand, the participants will be helping to protect wildlife. Poster printing can be put to use by an organization such as this to create promotional materials the let the public know what they can do to help their local ocean areas.

The organizers of the event are hoping that there will be a good turnout, as the more people who help, the more effective it will be. It is scheduled for January 7th at Crab Meadow beach, which is located in Huntington. More information and an opportunity to sign up can be found on the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation’s website. Those interested can also call 631-369-9840 or email education@riverheadfoundation.org for further details.

The expo will take place this Saturday, December 3 from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm at the PETCO, located at 30 Veterans Memorial Highway.
