"What a wonderful vacation spot!" Prized North Carolina Vacation Up for Grabs at Our Benefit Auction
It's mid-August, which means that summer is nearly over, and our Benefit Auction is almost 24 hours away. We have received a generous amount of donations, including antiques, furniture, exercise equipment and more. However, one of the best offerings of the night is the vacation home for a vacation in Duck, North Carolina. At last year's auction, Diana Hamann won it. Here's what Diana had to say about her time in Duck:
What a wonderful vacation spot! Plenty of room for a group of friends, or an extended family to vacation. A relaxing place to walk on the beach, enjoy good restaurants, and fantastic seafood markets.
A week-long block is available for choosing during fall of this year or spring 2016. This beach house offers many amenities for a great escape from the cold weather of Western New York. The space is about 2800 square feet with four bedrooms, 3.5 baths and a fully stocked kitchen (no food).
Duck is a small beach town on the east coast of North Carolina. Duck has consistently ranked high on the Travel Channel’s annual America’s Best Beaches list and has placed on the best beaches list since 2000. Duck offers a variety of fun events and great eats that make for a fantastic getaway!

For those of you who don't know, the library has recently added Mango Languages to our list of databases. Mango Languages is a language-learning software where you can master a language, or learn some vocabulary before an international trip. Mango Languages can be accessed in the library, or at home, by any Westfield card holders.
Confused? That's okay, because you might not know that some languages distinguish between colors in different ways.. Although we have plenty of names for colors, English speakers tend to think of colors like red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet as the "basic" colors from which we get the others. But these distinctions are not universal.
Visit the library, or call at 326-2154, to learn how you can get started with Mango Languages today!
