New Woodstock The New Woodstock Free Library annual volunteer recognition celebration will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Dec. 7, at the library, 2106 Main Street (Route 13). The opening of the annual Cazenovia schools student art exhibit will coincide with the volunteer event.
The event will include refreshments, children’s crafts, a brief ceremony to recount the year’s achievements and a first look at the children’s art exhibit which will run through Jan. 31, 2014. The public is invited to attend, meet the student artists and thank the volunteers for their efforts.
Librarian Norm Parry says volunteers have sustained and supported the library for 75 years. The library celebrates its “diamond” anniversary this coming year.
“We have always had an extraordinary group of people who give their time and skills to make the library what it is,” Parry said. “We could never thank them enough, but we designate one day a year to recognize the essential role they play in the library’s success and longevity. We invite everyone who uses the library to stop by Dec. 7 and express their thanks.”
The student art show has been an annual attraction at the library for more than 15 years. Cazenovia art teacher Mary Damon arranges the show. For many of the students this exhibit is the first opportunity they’ve had to show their works in a venue outside the school.
The New Woodstock Free Library is open 1 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 7 to 9 p.m. Monday and Wednesday evenings and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays. The library is also open whenever the blue library symbol flag is flying out front. Children’s hour is at 11 a.m. every Tuesday.
