April Library Programs

We have two library programs this month.

Tivoli Free Library

This Friday, April 1st, we will be at the Tivoli Library on 86 Broadway, Tivoli, NY 12583. Join us at 4 pm for games, puzzles, and interesting problems - we're not fooling you, we promise!

Kingston Library

On Saturday, April 9th, we welcome one and all to the Kingston Library, 55 Franklin Street, Kingston, NY 12401. The Children's Department is undergoing renovation, so we will meet upstairs in the Story Hour Room. Come out for some enriching problem solving and fun, math-themed crafts!

All library programs are run on a drop-in basis, and registration is not required. We do ask students to sign in each time, and to provide their name, grade and school. This is done electronically for Kingston, so please sign in using this link at least once this year.

Purple Comet! Math Meet

We are looking for middle school and high school students to compete in the annual Purple Comet! Math Meet. The Bard Math Circle will be hosting this competition here at Bard College from Tuesday April 12 through Thursday April 21. If you would like to sign up as an individual or a pre-formed team, click here to register. For information about the Purple Comet! competition, check out their website here.

C.A.M.P. Summer 2016

Are you a middle student (grades 5-8) looking for an engaging and exciting mathematical experience this summer? Look no further! The Bard Creative Analytical Math Program (C.A.M.P.) will be held from August 22-26, 2016. Registration will launch in early to mid April.

Want to hear more about the C.A.M.P? We will be sending out more information later this month. Click the link at the bottom of this email that says "update subscription preferences" and make sure you have "Summer C.A.M.P" checked off under the "I am interested in" heading. In the meantime, check out the American Math Society and the Art of Problem Solving lists for more math camps you can attend this summer.



Do you enjoy playing chess? Want to show off your skills or meet others who share your interest? Check out the Chess in the Clove Swiss Tournament Challenge hosted by the Platte Clove School Chess Club. The event takes place on Sunday April 23rd and is geared towards students in grades K-8. If you are interested in participating in this event, email or call 518-589-5103 to register before April 20th. For more information, contact Peter Maas by email.

We are excited for what is coming and we hope you are too!
