WAWA PUBLIC LIBRARY SUMMER PROGRAMS: Summer Reading Program has come to an end! Thanks to everyone who joined our lives and entered our reading jar contest! Our winners for the tablet and candy were Riley, Isla, and Lachlan. Thanks again to Wesdome, Brookfield and the Rotary Club for donating to help us get these awesome prizes and materials for our clubs. Thank you also to Zoe for another great summer of fun and reading! Hope that everyone has a great school year!
LIBRARY REOPENING: The library will be reopening Tuesday, Sept. 8th 2020. Our reopening policy is available to read on the library website (wawa.olsn.ca). We will be allowing five people in at a time for no more than 15 minutes at a time. Anyone wishing to use the public computers must call ahead to book a time. This is to avoid having too many people in the library. The time limit on the computers will be 30 minutes. Masks must be worn, social distancing must be respected and hand sanitizer will be provided. We will ask that you read a questionnaire prior to entering the library. Only the main library entrance will be available at this time. Our hours initially will remain Tuesday-Friday from 11:00am-4:00pm. The drop box will remain open at all times. All library materials will be returned in the drop box, not the circulation desk. You will be required to leave your name and contact info so that we may complete a daily Covid-19 Tracking Sheet! For those not comfortable entering public buildings, we will continue curbside pickup.
