2017 Summer Reading Program: 

Our 2017 Summer Reading Program will begin on Monday, July 3.  With the theme “Build a Better World,” we will offer a range of activities for all ages that encourage us to grow, connect and create with books, art and craft projects, science experiments and special events.

Build and create with LEGO Club on Mondays from 4-5 PM; Storytime is back on Wednesdays from 11 AM to Noon, followed by Crafts & Games from 12:30 to 1:30 PM; and on Thursdays from 6 to 7:30 PM, we have activities planned to engage the whole family.

<< LIBRARY PROGRAMS >>

Toddler/Preschool Storytime:   Wednesday mornings from 11 AM to Noon  Join Miss Lee for stories, songs, and movement activities designed for infants to children up to five years old.  In addition to developing pre-reading skills, singing, moving to music, and playing instruments all help foster a sense of rhythm and timing that are essential elements in developing the part of a child’s brain that shapes math skills.

Read to Lefty (Registered Therapy Dog):  Fridays from 5:30 to 6:30 PM (once a month)  If your child is self-conscious or reluctant to read, he or she may feel more comfortable reading to a dog.  Because dogs aren’t judgmental, the child relaxes and focuses on the reading.

Technology Walk-In Wednesdays:   Do you have a new Kindle or Nook, but don’t know how to download books?  Need to brush up on your computer skills – or obtain basic skills?  See Amy on Wednesdays between 10 AM and 1 PM for FREE, personalized, one-on-one instruction.

Library Book Discussion Group:  Meets the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7 PM.  New members are welcome.  Contact the library for the month’s selection.

Memoir Writing Group:  Meets the 2nd Saturday of each month at 11 AM.   Led by Lila Hollister Smith, this group is open to all who are interested in self-expression through the art of writing.  New members are welcome.

Westerlo Quilting & Fiber Arts Group:   Meets the 4th Saturday of each month at 11 AM.  Led by Lila Hollister Smith, the group is open to all skill levels.  Please join us!
