Happy New Year!

The Westerlo Public Library will be back to our regular hours on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 2 and 3, after being closed for New Year’s Day.

Grant award

We are very proud to announce that the Preservation League of New York has awarded the library $8,400 to prepare a Historic Structures Report for our building. The library was one of 15 organizations throughout the state to receive funding from the Preserve New York grant program. 

The Report that we produce with this grant will allow us to document the historic development of our building, assess its current condition, and plan for the challenges of meeting modern needs in a historic facility.  The project will be completed over the next year by historic preservation architects Mark Thaler and David Coe.

In the display case

A special thank you to Lila Smith for sharing the making of The Christmas Castle Storybook. The story was written by the Smith family about an eclectic assortment of children’s toys and crafts that were a part of the family’s Christmas celebration for many years. Lila hand-lettered and illustrated the story, then hand-bound them into gift books to share with family and friends. The library also received two copies. They are in our Holiday Collection so you can share the story with your family.

Commemorative brick fund-raiser

We invite you to join us in creating an outdoor programming and reading area for the library. By purchasing a commemorative brick, you can honor your friends and family, memorialize a loved one, or promote your business or organization. You can even split-a-brick between friends and families.

Your personalized, engraved brick will be displayed in the walkway and landscaped area to be built in 2015 in front of the library. Your brick purchase will help not only the library, but will also enhance our community by creating a clean, safe, inviting gathering space downtown.
