(New Woodstock, NY – Oct. 2012) “Technology is the art of science,” said New Woodstock Free Library Director Norm Parry, “and the New Woodstock Library has a rare retrospective of the kaleidoscopic variety of technology created over the past century on exhibit during October and November. The New Woodstock exhibit is also one stop on the Greater Cazenovia Art Trail program Oct. 6 and 13.

From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. the first two Saturdays in October, the library will participate in the first-ever Cazenovia Area Community Development Association Art Trail program to support and encourage the arts in the greater Cazenovia area. New Woodstock’s exhibit is a collection of uncommon and often beautiful technological devices invented during the technology revolution of the past century.

The exhibit is the work of New Woodstock resident Bob Chevako, a retired physicist and engineer who collected and preserved representative instruments and artifacts of the science that brought the world radar, radio, television, electronic communication and the early devices that evolved into the computers and cyber tools of the present day.

The library has extended hours Oct. 6 and 13 for the Art Trail event. The library will be open for lending and other library services from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on those days.
