Our Summer Reading Program has reached its final week at the Waverly Free Library, and we want to express how much we appreciate everyone who participated this year!

This week’s Story Time theme is Camping. Story Time starts at 10:15 a.m. with a craft, songs and – of course – stories! Story Time is sponsored by Sayre Personal Care Center and is led by Becky Keir Grace. Next week’s theme will be Fireflies.

The next Kids Maker session will be on Tuesday, Aug. 20, at 5 p.m., and will feature hand-made snow globes. Because of the great early response to the event, we need to cap the total at 60, and advance registration is required. We will do two sessions – at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. – so please specify which one you’re attending. And sorry, but once all spots are filled, we won’t be able to accommodate any more.

The Ithaca Physics Bus will be at Muldoon Park on Wednesday, Aug. 21, as a makeup date for the rain-postponed event earlier this year. The hours will be 3-6 p.m., and there’s something for kids of all ages!

The Waverly United Methodist Church’s Book Sale will be held on Friday, Aug. 23, and Saturday, Aug. 24. The books come largely from the library, and we’re thankful to share in the proceeds. If you’re looking for books, be sure to check it out!
