The library will be CLOSED on Monday, May 28, in observation of Memorial day.

In conjunction with the opening of the Hannay Community Room, the Library is hosting an exhibition of seventeen artists from Westerlo and neighboring towns.  Their works range from drawing to watercolor to sculpture, and highlight the creative talent that exists in our own backyard.  Many of the works on display illustrate local scenes that will be familiar to visitors of the exhibit.

The show will be at the Library through the end of June and can be seen during regular library hours.   Most works are available for purchase.  Our thanks to Peter Keitel, President of the Bethlehem Art Association, for curating the exhibit.

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.
