“Afterschool Programs” are up and running, Tuesday through Friday from 3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.  Come on down to the Wawa Public Library and join in the afterschool fun!


We received an email from a fellow that used to come to the Library back in 2009 when he was 11 years old but has since moved away.  I would like to share part of his email with you.  “It was my home away from home, where I could come to just read and be alone for a while when I needed it.  And I just wanted to say thank you very much.  Libraries don’t get enough credit these days.  As safe, inviting spaces, there are few that can really compare.  You do really good work, and it sticks with people, in case you had forgotten.  Keep being great.” It sure feels great to know that we make a difference.
