a sample of Ms. Gatto’s completed mural
Sidney High School student Rosie Gatto recently completed her jungle themed mural in the children’s area of the Sidney Library. She worked over the year to paint this mural, which also helped her earn her Gold Award in Girl Scouts, the highest award available.
To recognize Ms. Gatto’s hard work and the completion of this project, we invite kids to join us at the Sidney Library at 4pm on Thursday June 5th for a celebration.
During the month of June, the Smart Community Room will feature artwork by Scott and Brenda Wesley. Both artists, who are residents of Unadilla, work primarily in acrylic and mixed media. Stop in anytime the library is open to view their work.
This exhibit can be viewed beginning on June 5th.

Many of our patrons have commented on the beautiful nature and animal photography of Lucinda VanVleck hanging in the Smart Community Room this month.
