Welcome to the Owl’s Nest Blog from the Westbury Children’s Library, officially known as Children’s Library – Robert Bacon Memorial. If you’ve visited us before, you may have noticed the bust over the fireplace. It is a portrait of former Secretary of State Robert Bacon.

Our plan for this blog is to periodically share useful and/or interesting information with our visitors. You may see lyrics for songs we sang in Circle Time, links to books we’ve read in storytime, early literacy tips, fun facts about the history of our Library (this is where Robert Bacon comes in) and anything else we think you need to know!

Thanks for reading and we hope you visit us in person soon!

The Owl’s Nest was the nickname given to the home of the Library’s first librarian, Jacqueline Overton.
