Roe Jan Library teams up with CLC as young readers explore ponds & streams

COPAKE — The Columbia Land Conservancy (CLC) led a program to explore ponds and streams on Saturday  morning, Oct. 4, in collaboration with Children’s Librarian Tia Maggio from the Roeliff Jansen Community Library.

A group of excited young library patrons, along with Jenifer Rosete of CLC and Maggio, went to the Roe Jan Kill near the library to investigate the stream and learn all about the local waterway — as scenic as it is educational.

In addition to teaching children about how to safely explore ponds and streams through its programs, the CLC offers local students its National Explorer Backpacks program.

Maggio said that the Roe Jan Library “will always have the backpacks for kids to check out.”

The backpacks are free of charge, and easy to pick up.

For more information, go to www.roejanlibrary.org or call 518-325-4101; the library is located at 9091 Route 22, Copake.

For more information on the CLC, go to www.clctrust.org.
