Historic Bridges of the Hudson Valley

Wednesday, November 6
grades 4-7

A member of the Historic Bridges of the Hudson Valley lead this program. We will read the book A Book of Bridges: ​Here To There And Me To You ​by Cheryl Keely. This book goes through some of the different kinds of bridges in the world, and links it to real bridges. The discussion will segue into a small lesson on the NYSBA Bridges. There will be large foam board pictures of the different bridges in our area, as well as some artifacts from the bridges that the students can touch. Participants then have the opportunity to build a bridge, usually either a suspension bridge or a truss bridge.
Be sure to register, spaces are limited!​  Rondout students can take bus #19 to the library. Register
