Westerlo Library Notes for Wednesday, June 12, 2019

The Artists Group will meet at the Westerlo Library on Tuesday, June 18, from 2:15 to 4 p.m.

Beginners are welcome.  Bring paper and pencil. If you can sign your name, you can learn to draw!  Experienced artists, bring your favorite medium.

It’s summertime and the reading is easy! The library’s book-discussion group will meet Thursday, June 20, at 6 p.m.

Read for pure pleasure and share your favorites with the group. Please join us. New members are welcome.

Lego Club

Drop in on Monday afternoons from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. to play and create with Lego.

Lego uses play to open up the world of math, science and cooperative problem-solving to young minds.  The colorful blocks ignite natural curiosity and build confidence as children bring their ideas to life.

Miss Lee is also available for homework help.

Story time   

Join Miss Lee Wednesday mornings from 11 a..m. to noon 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.  

Story times are also a great opportunity to meet other parents of small children in Westerlo.

Technology Walk-In Wednesdays

Do you have a new smartphone or tablet, but don’t know how to download digital materials? 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.
