The Westerlo Library wants to encourage you to try something new at the library. Read a book by an author you’ve never read before, read a book with the word “snow” in the title, read a nonfiction book or read a book that has a blue cover.

These are just a few of the 25 suggestions on our Cozy Up at the Westerlo Library this Winter “Bingo” sheet. Throughout the next few months, we will have activities including special book discussions and new materials geared toward caretakers for loved ones who have dementia and Alzheimer.

All of these activities have been made possible by a grant from the Upper Hudson Library System Adult and Outreach Services Department. Please watch here for updates.
