George and Lefty are ready to listen to young readers at the Westerlo Library.

The Westerlo Library had a popular display at the Altamont Fair titled “What To Do With That Goldfish Your Child Wins.”

As the new director of the Westerlo Public Library, I want to thank everyone for the warm welcome. Sue Hoadley, the staff, and the board of trustees have been wonderful showing me around and sharing the history of the library.

I appreciate everyone’s kindness. I look forward to getting to know the current patrons of the library as well as inviting new people to stop in and check out all that we have to offer. 

Lefty and George

This past weekend was a very busy one for the Westerlo Library! Our Read-To-Me dog, Lefty, visited the library last Friday, and brought his baby “brother,” George, who has recently passed his Therapy Dogs International test to be a therapy dog! Lefty will continue to visit each month with George as his backup. Lefty’s next visit will be on Friday, Sept. 27.

Books in the Barnyard 

On Saturday, the Library participated in the Altamont Fair’s Books in The Barnyard. John Gray read his book, “Keller’s Heart,” and signed copies, which the fair gave away to his fans.

Fair-goers seemed to enjoy our Goldfish Aquaponics display — “What To Do With That Goldfish Your Child Wins” — and the fish had a lot of fun watching the people and animals as they came by.

Shorty, the Therapy Dogs International therapy dog who visits us every other Monday, brought his handler, Kelli, and provided stress relief to everyone who stopped by to visit with him.

We gave away lots of books that the Altamont Fair provided — and had a great time reading; speaking to people; and petting the snakes, goats, and chickens that stopped by!

Roberta Villanova Nunn, left, poses with an aboriginal artist displaying a work — included in a Westerlo Library exhibit — depicting the sun, trails, and spiritual locations in Australia.

Meet a world traveler and art collector, Roberta Villanova Nunn, at the Westerlo Library.

You can chat with Roberta on Monday, July 22, from 5 to 7 p.m. Fourteen paintings and multimedia works collected from her journeys are currently on display in the Hannay Room gallery. She will also talk about her travels at 2:30 p.m., as part of our Summer Reading Program, A Universe of Stories.

Roberta has a passion for education and she has traveled to the ends of the Earth to learn about the geography, history, and culture of the peoples of the world. As she traveled, she collected representative examples of the arts and crafts of each country she visited. 

Most recently, she trekked to Ecuador and Peru (2014); Tanzania (2015); Australia and New Zealand (2018); Chile, Brazil and Argentina (2018); and Morocco (2019).  This exhibit is comprised of items collected from those three continents: Africa, Australia and South America.

“I’ve experienced how much all people have in common: family, beliefs, and living each day to the best of one’s ability,” she says of her travels. “There is so much beauty in the world both in geography and in the human spirit.”

The exhibit includes a Berber Rug from Morocco, Aboriginal paintings from Australia and multimedia works from Ecuador and Peru. Smaller items and memorabilia are exhibited in the display case. 

A long-time resident of Westerlo, Roberta Nunn is a retired teacher of Italian, Spanish, and French. Her exploration of the world began at age 6, when her mother took her on an ocean voyage to visit family in Italy. When she isn’t working in her garden, she serves as a trustee of the Westerlo Public Library.

The show will run through the end of August and can be seen during regular library hours. Our thanks to Peter Keitel, former President of the Bethlehem Art Association, for curating this series of exhibits.
