The Library will be CLOSED on Thursday, November 26, to celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday. We will be OPEN on Friday.
This year’s construction project is almost complete! It was funded by our ongoing Memorial Brick Fundraiser (see below), our annual Book & Bake Sales, and gifts large and small — all matched by a 75% Public Library Construction Program grant from the New York State Education Department. Thank you for your support!
Memorial Brick Fundraiser: We invite you to join us in creating an outdoor area for reading, meeting and programs. By purchasing a commemorative brick, you can honor your friends and family, memorialize a loved one, or promote your business or organization. For an order form go to www.polarengraving.com/westerlolibrary
After School @ The Library: School is back in session and so is our after school program! Beginning September 14, join Miss Lee on Monday afternoons from 3:30 to 4:30 PM for homework help, games, crafts, puzzles, music and a lot more! Programs will also include storytelling, hands-on demonstrations, and visits from special guests. Lee is also available on Thursdays from 3 to 8 PM for homework help.
Toddler/Preschool Storytime: Wednesday mornings from 11:00 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.
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.
Westerlo Quilting Group: Meets the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month at 11 AM. Led by Lila Hollister Smith, the group is open to all skill levels. Please join us!
