WESTERNVILLE — The Western Town Library board of trustees will host an open house and inaugural Craft Fair on Saturday July 9, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The event will showcase the projects and upgrades completed over the past few years at the library, 9172 Main St., that officials said, have been made possible by several grants and donations.

“The library will be open for all to come in and see the improvements and hear about the support that has been given by the Mid York Library Construction Grants which are New York State supported; the Rome Community Foundation, including the Stevens-Kingsley Fund; the Hazan B. Hinman, Sr. Foundation; the Griffin Charitable Foundation; the Kenneth V. & Jeannette Remp Sawyer Community Fund of the Northern New York Community Foundation; the Jeremiah McCarthy Family Foundation; the Wadas Family Foundation, the Community Foundation, and more,” the announcement said.

During the open house, there will be a Craft Fair on the lawn of the library. The fair, a fundraising event to support the library in its operations, will feature an assortment of crafts sold by local artists.
