The library will be CLOSED on Monday, February 19, for the Presidents Day holiday.

New Homebound Delivery Service:  Can’t make it to the library?  Maybe you’ve had surgery or just don’t drive anymore.  If you – or a friend or family member – would like to take advantage of borrowing books, movies and audiobooks, your public library is standing by to help!

Our new Homebound Delivery Service is a free library delivery service provided to the residents of the Town of Westerlo who are unable to visit the library.  If you think this service might be right for you – or a friend or family member – call (or visit) the library during regular business hours at (518) 797-3415.

<< LIBRARY PROGRAMS >>

After School LEGO Club:  Mondays from 3:30 to 4:40 PM  Drop in to play and create with LEGO.  We supply the blocks; you bring the imagination.  Miss Lee is also available for homework help.

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.
