Read to Angus the Dog

Angus will visit the library again on the first Friday of the month starting June 6, from 6 to 7 p.m.  Contact the library to register your child for a 15-minute reading session with Angus.  If your child is self-conscious about reading aloud or reluctant to read at all, he or she may feel more comfortable reading to a dog.  Because dogs are not judgmental, the child relaxes, pats the attentive dog, and focuses on the reading.  Another benefit is the joy children get from being around a dog.  Angus is a registered therapy dog.  Thanks to Laura Tenney for volunteering her time and sharing Angus with us.

A big thank-you to everyone who participated in this year’s book and bake sale at the Westerlo Pubic Library. Our bakers, our volunteers who helped us set up and sell, and most of all everyone who purchased books and baked goods. 

Grant awarded

The library has been awarded a $500 grant from the Bank of Greene County Charitable Foundation. This grant will be used to develop an outdoor area for library programs, as well as use as a community space when the library is not open for business. 

 It is through the support of individuals and local charitable organizations, like the Bank of Greene County, that we are able to strengthen our programs, and develop new and innovative library projects to serve our patrons and the community at large.  

The Bank of Greene County Charitable Foundation enhances the quality of life for people living in communities served by The Bank and its affiliates, by providing funding to not-for-profit groups, institutions, schools and other organizations.  Since its inception in 1998, The Bank of Greene County’s Charitable Foundation has contributed a total of $700,000 to local non-profit organizations.
