After school programs

We have started the after school programs.  On Tuesday, we have Craft Club, Wednesday is Clay Club, Thursday is Cartoon Club, and Friday is Game Day.  All clubs are 3:30-4:30 for ages 4-12 and anyone under the age of 6 must be accompanied by an adult.  Come on down to the Wawa Public Library and participate in our after school programs.

 

Drop Box

We are now operating with our new drop box in place.  You may deposit your returns only in the drop box when the library is closed.

 

Staff Picks for the Month of October are:

“The Obsession” by Nora Roberts, “The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow” by Rita Leganski,  “Daddy’s Gone A Hunting” by Mary Higgins Clark and “Dying Breath” by Heather Graham.

‘Dying Breath’ –  Buried Alive…  As a teenager, Vickie Preston survived an attack by a serial killer.  That was the first time she saw a ghost.  Now the city of Boston is being terrorized-someone is kidnapping women and burying them alive, but cruelly leaving a glimmer of hope for the authorities by sending a clue about their location.  Vickie is pulled into the investigation when her name is mentioned in one of the notes.  And as a historian, she has the knowledge to help uncover the graves the killer known as the Undertaker is choosing.  But she also has another unique lead: the spirit of one of the victims is appearing to her in dreams.

 

The library is closed Sundays, Mondays and all holidays. We are open Tuesday through Thursday from 11:30 – 8:00 pm; Friday 11:30 – 5:00 pm, and Saturday from noon until 2 pm.

 

We would like to thank everyone who participated in our community survey which has now come to an end.  We appreciate all your input and look forward to seeing you at the library to continue serving you in the future.  The winner of the draw prize for participating in the survey is Denise Connell!  Congratulations, Denise!
