Dylan Napoleone, an experienced bass fisherman from CT, will be coming to the Woodbury Public Library on Saturday, December 14th at 2:00 to present "Bass Fishing in Connecticut". This presentation will be informational and beneficial to people of all ages who are interested in becoming a better fisherman. The event is free and you're guaranteed to leave the seminar feeling confident about how catch bass in CT lakes, ponds, and rivers.
Dylan Napoleone created the bass fishing program as a Senior Capstone Project, a graduation requirement for his high school. He will share a PowerPoint presentation to spread his knowledge to people with varying levels of knowledge about the sport. Fishing is a sport that he fell in love with at an early age and he now fishes competitively in tournaments. Get tips on how to fish for bass, what baits to use, and so much more, long before fishing season begins!  The program open to interested area residents and registration is requested.  

Gallery is open during business hours. 

Artist's Reception is December 7th

What's On Now

When "West Side Story" opened in London a critic wrote "This show begins a new age in theatre." Leonard Bernstein's fourth musical certainly was ground-breaking. This modern version of "Romeo and Juliet" was no musical comedy fantasy, but rather a realistic tragedy with major characters killed at the end of each act. Never had a musical integrated so much dance which was also crucial to the story-line. Add to that a rhythmically and harmonically rich score and the team of Sondheim, Robbins and composer Bernstein produced a revolutionary work for Broadway. Jeffrey Engel, Adjunct Professor at Northwestern CT Community College and music lecturer brings his vast knowledge of composer Leonard Bernstein to the Woodbury Library in a lecture about Bernstein's musical compositions for the smash Broadway musical West Side Story.  The lecture includes both film and music clips. Registration is required via Library website at

Be a Better Bass Fisherman with Dylan Napoleone

Christmas in the New England colonies was, for the most part, just another day. Celebrating Christmas was outlawed in most of New England. Puritans and Protestants detested the entire celebration, and likened it to "pagan rituals."  But, some colonists enjoyed an array of festivities, such as singing carols, decorating their homes, & hosting feasts.  Join Velya and Ehris, the mother/daughter Grounded Goodwife duo, for "Christmas in the Colonies".  You'll learn about the many traditions specific to old New England.  At this hands-on event you try walnut boat races (to find out if you'll live to see 2020!), apple peel throwing (to determine your spouse), apple howling (for a bountiful harvest), join a group wassail carol and make a DIY Apple Cinnamon Sugar Scrub to take home. 
Space is limited: registration is required please visit

Come join us as we participate in a sing-a-long with the Nonnewaug High School Chorus and Band at 4:00 PM while we wait for Santa to arrive and turn on the lights! All are welcome. ​
