Westerlo Library Notes for Thursday, April 17, 2014

The book discussion group will meet this Thursday, April 14, at 7 p.m., at the Westerlo Public Library. We will discuss Joanna Trollope’s novel, Next of Kin.  Please join us.  New members are welcomed.

Mother’s Day bake sale

Calling all Bakers!  The library’s annual bake sale will be held on Saturday, May 10, the day before Mother’s Day, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the library.  Donations of baked goods are welcomed.  A sign-up sheet is at the circulation desk.


We now have BookPage, the monthly book review and selection guide to the best new books. The tone is upbeat and literate, focusing on bestsellers as well as new discoveries.  Pick up your free copy before they’re gone. All of the content from the print edition is also posted on BookPage.com each month. 

Story time

Our toddler and preschool story time meets on Wednesday at 10 a.m. Join Miss Lee for stories, songs, games and movement activities designed for children ages two 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 Wednesday

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 a.m. and 1 p.m., for free, personalized, one-on-one instruction.  If Wednesday mornings are not convenient, please contact us to schedule an appointment.
