The Wawa Public Library is looking for senior citizens who would like to volunteer for our Intergenerational Buddy Reading Program or/and our Shut-in Outreach Program. Volunteers would be asked to contribute 3-6 hours a month. We are also looking for more knitters for our Knitting Connection Group. All materials are supplied by the library through a grant received from New Horizons for Seniors. We are hoping to give a box of our knitted/crocheted items to Jana Strouhalova for the people of Ukraine. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the library staff at 705-856-2244 ext 290 or 291!

Staff Pick of the Week is “The Last Party” by Clare MacIntosh. From the book jacket:
At midnight, one of them is dead.
By morning, all of them are suspects.
It’s a party to end all parties, but not everyone is here to celebrate.
On New Year’s Eve, Rhys Lloyd has a house full of guests. His vacation homes on Mirror Lake are a success, and he’s generously invited the village to drink champagne with their wealthy new neighbors.
But by midnight, Rhys will be floating dead in the freezing waters of the lake.
On New Year’s Day, Ffion Morgan has a village full of suspects. The tiny community is her home, so the suspects are her neighbors, friends and family—and Ffion has her own secrets to protect.
With a lie uncovered at every turn, soon the question isn’t who wanted Rhys dead…but who finally killed him.
In a village with this many secrets, murder is just the beginning.
Our new movies this week are “Morbius”, starring Jared Leto and Michael Keaton, “Fargo Season 1” starring Billy Bob Thornton, “Red Sparrow” starring Jennifer Lawrence and “Bee Movie” starring Jerry Steinfeld.
