In keeping with the statewide summer reading theme

kids who are:
7 and older
and
signed up at the library for our Summer Reading program

are invited on a voyage of the LGA's Floating Classroom!  


More events for all ages to be announced
The water theme also gives us a chance to celebrate Lake George's very own monster, Georgie.

Georgie was 'born' in the summer of 1904, in Hague, NY. He popped up all over Lake George, and seemed to like teasing people. Later he was the star of a local carnival, escaped a fire, and traveled all the way to the Virgin Islands and back.

To celebrate summer reading and our beautiful lake waters, we have Georgie-related handouts and make-your-own lake monster puppets in our children's room. We encourage kids and parents to learn more about Georgie's colorful life: pay him a visit at the Lake George Historical Association Museum. (Hours: July - August, Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays - 11am to 4pm.Wednesdays, Thursdays - 3pm to 8pm. Closed Sundays and Mondays.)
