Westerlo Library Notes for Wednesday, January 29, 2014

This Saturday, Feb. 1, is Take Your Child to the Library Day. Join us at the Westerlo Public Library for stories, some fun crafts, a game or two, sweet treats and more. This is a great opportunity to sign your child up for a library card if he or she doesn’t have one yet. 

A project of the New York Library Association, Take Your Child to the Library Day demonstrates the transformative role libraries play in the life of every child. 

Library survey

The library needs your input. The board of trustees of the library has developed a community survey to gather information about how Westerlo residents utilize the library to better fill your needs.

The survey takes 5 minutes to complete. Pick up a paper survey at the library and fill it out right there or mail it back later. The same survey is available online at the library website, www.westerlolibrary.org. 

Whether you are a regular library patron or have not used the library in a while, your input is important to plan for future services and to prioritize resources. 

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 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, hands-on instruction on how to work the mouse, navigate the Internet, set up an e-mail account, use office automation programs, and more. If Wednesday mornings are not convenient, please contact us to schedule an appointment.
