Who? A Kangaroo?

    Nature Nick will stop in to the Amagansett Library on Saturday afternoon with a menagerie of a dozen unusual creatures, including a spider monkey, a kangaroo, a snake, and a bird of prey. His program is geared to kids in kindergarten through sixth grade and will offer a chance to see the animals up close and learn something about each one. It begins at 3:30 and is free, but seats should be reserved in advance as space is limited.

Make Paint

    Sue Lichtenstein, an artist and educator, will teach kids 2 and older how to make natural paints from fruits, vegetables, and spices during a painting and printmaking workshop at the Children’s Museum of the East End in Bridgehampton on Saturday. Adults should accompany children to the class, which begins at 10:30 a.m. The cost is $16 including museum admission, or $5 for museum members. Reservations have been suggested.

    Coming up on Friday, Oct. 25, at 4 p.m., the museum will host a Halloween party for kids 6 and under. Entry is $13, free for members.

Eek! College Essays

    For many college-bound high school students, the college essay is much scarier than the ghosts and ghouls of Halloween. Lisa del Favero, a tutor and SAT coach, will help to ease some of those fears in a two-part class on Sunday and Oct. 27 at the John Jermain Memorial Library in Sag Harbor.

    The class will meet from 1:30 to 3 p.m. both days, and participants must commit to both sessions. Because space is limited to 10 students, advance sign-up is required.

More Stories

    Along with the usual weekly offerings, the East Hampton Library will add two story and craft sessions to its schedule this week. One on Saturday from 2 to 2:45 p.m. is for kids 3 and older. A Halloween story time on Tuesday from 4 to 5 p.m. is for kids 4 to 6 with an adult. Sign-up is required for each.
