On Friday, June 7 th the Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library will partner with the Michael J. Armstrong Memorial Foundation to host “Five-Minute Flicks,” a new annual competition in collaboration with the film program at South Orangetown’s Tappan Zee High School.
The competition, which will award three cash prizes, provides an opportunity to remember the life of 9/11 victim Michael J. Armstrong while celebrating the creative talents of local teenagers. The challenge for entrants will be to tell a compelling story, in any theme or
genre of their choosing, in five minutes or less. Prizes will be awarded for First Place ($500), Second Place ($300), and Third Place ($200) at the end of the evening. It is the hope of the Foundation that the prize money will be spent to further enhance the students’ love of film.
Doors will open for this event at 6:30 pm. The viewing of entries will begin at approximately 7:00 p.m., and admission is free.
In conjunction with our Annual Student Art Exhibition: Adventures in Mexico, the Library presents a Frida Kahlo Scavenger Hunt for families.

Come anytime the library is open June 4th – June 18th.
For the month of June, the Library will present its Annual Student Art Exhibition: Adventures in Mexico. An Artists’ Reception will be held on Sunday, June 2nd, from 3:00 – 4:00 pm. All are welcome. Throughout the year, the Library offers free art classes focusing on a variety of materials and techniques to students in grades 1 – 8 taught by Alexis Starke. This year, the focus is on Mexico and Fridamania has hit the Library! Ask any of our young artists about all things Frida and you are sure to be impressed. Projects are inspired by Frida Kahlo and the less well-known volcano-loving Mexican artist, Dr. Atl, as well as traditional Mexican crafts. Patrons are always delighted to see the creations of our youngest artists.
