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 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 Couple Next Door” by Shari Lapena. From the book jacket:
You never know what’s happening on the other side of the wall.
Your neighbour told you that she didn’t want your six-month-old daughter at the dinner party. Nothing personal, she just couldn’t stand her crying.
Your husband said it would be fine. After all, you only live next door. You’ll have the baby monitor and you’ll take it in turns to go back every half hour.
Your daughter was sleeping when you checked on her last. But now, as you race up the stairs in your deathly quiet house, your worst fears are realized. She’s gone.
You’ve never had to call the police before. But now they’re in your home, and who knows what they’ll find there.
What would you be capable of, when pushed past your limit?
