Do you hate throwing away coupons, even when you can’t use them?  Well, we’ve got the solution. Donate your unused, unexpired coupons to the coupon-exchange box, and in turn, help yourself to the coupons that others have donated.

Your public library:  A good value in ways you never imagine.

Story time

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.

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