Between the Covers – March 8

In collaboration with The Wawa Family Health Team and Wawa Area Food Strategy, the Wawa Public Library will be starting a Seed Library! A Seed Swap will be held at the Wawa Public Library on Saturday March 11th, from 12pm until 2pm. There will be some experienced gardeners here for you to talk to and get tips from. We will have refreshments, and everyone will also have a chance to win a door prize! Get your green thumbs ready for the growing season and start by visiting the Wawa Public Library!


Join us for some fun March Break activities! All programs will begin at 1:00 p.m.

  • Tuesday – Storytime with the Fire Chief! Fire Chief Kevin Sabourin will be joining us to read a story. We will hopefully be able to take a quick trip to the Fire Hall and then back to the library for a craft!
  • Wednesday – Pokeball Beadcraft! We are getting the beads and string out and we are going to make a pokeball!
  • Thursday – Claytime: We are going to create a masterpiece using popsicle sticks and clay!
  • Friday – Slimetime: It’s St. Patrick’s Day and we are going to make some green slime!



New Books on the 7-Day Shelf this week are; “The Drift” by C.J.Tudor, “The Villa” by Rachel Hawkins, “Bad Cree” by Jessica Johns and “All the Dangerous Things’ by Stacy Willingham. En Français, nous avons “A Tout Jamais” par Colleen Hoover.


STAFF PICK OF THE WEEK is “Night School” by Lee Child. From the book jacket:

It’s 1996, and Reacher is still in the army. In the morning they give him a medal, and in the afternoon they send him back to school. That night he’s off the grid. Out of sight, out of mind.

Two other men are in the classroom—an FBI agent and a CIA analyst. Each is a first-rate operator, each is fresh off a big win, and each is wondering what the hell they are doing there.

Then they find out: A Jihadist sleeper cell in Hamburg, Germany, has received an unexpected visitor—a Saudi courier, seeking safe haven while waiting to rendezvous with persons unknown. A CIA asset, undercover inside the cell, has overheard the courier whisper a chilling message: “The American wants a hundred million dollars.”

For what? And who from? Reacher and his two new friends are told to find the American. Reacher recruits the best soldier he has ever worked with: Sergeant Frances Neagley. Their mission heats up in more ways than one, while always keeping their eyes on the prize: If they don’t get their man, the world will suffer an epic act of terrorism.

From Langley to Hamburg, Jalalabad to Kiev, Night School moves like a bullet through a treacherous landscape of double crosses, faked identities, and new and terrible enemies, as Reacher maneuvers inside the game and outside the law.
