Between the Covers – December 5

The Wawa Public Library will be closed December 24th, and reopening January 3rd, 2024.


Holiday Bingo Search & Find

All children are invited to stop in at the library and ask for a BINGO card and then find the holiday symbols hidden around the library. When all the symbols have been found, we will enter the child’s name in for a prize draw.

The BINGO card highlights some of the celebrations throughout the month of December through to February with the meaning of each symbol explained. This activity begins December 1st and goes until Friday, December 22nd at 3:30 p.m. at which time we will make the draw.

Staff Pick of the Week is “Crimson Lake” by Candice Fox.  Come on in and check it out. From the book jacket:

How do you move on when the world won’t let you?

12:46: Claire Bingley stands alone at a bus stop
12:47: Ted Conkaffey parks his car beside her
12:52: The girl is missing . . .

Six minutes in the wrong place at the wrong time—that’s all it took to ruin Sydney detective Ted Conkaffey’s life. Accused but not convicted of a brutal abduction,Ted is now a free man—and public enemy number one. Maintaining his innocence, he flees north to keep a low profile amidst the steamy, croc-infested wetlands of Crimson Lake.
There, Ted’s lawyer introduces him to eccentric private investigator Amanda Pharrell, herself a convicted murderer. Not entirely convinced Amanda is a cold-blooded killer, Ted agrees to help with her investigation, a case full of deception and obsession, while secretly digging into her troubled past. The residents of Crimson Lake are watching the pair’s every move… and the town offers no place to hide.
