Welcome to Way Public Library
France is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, and Normandy is of particular interest to many Americans. On April 23 at 7pm, you can come along with travel junkie Judy Pfaffenberger on a tour which begins in Le Havre and continues to the Alabaster Coste, then Honfleur, Rouen, Cherbourg, and the historic D-Day beaches where we are reminded of the tragedy and triumph which took place there 70 years ago. The final stop is a perfectly timed sunset rendezvous at magnificent Mont St. Michel.
Admission and refreshments are free of charge.
Way Library, in cooperation with WGTE, present the next installment of our film discussion series on Thursday, April 24th at 10:30am. Our April film will be The Address.
At the tiny Greenwood School in Putney, Vermont, 50 boys, ages 11 to 17, struggle through myriad learning differences to memorize and recite the Gettysburg Address, a rite of passage at the school for the last 35 years. Interweaving the history of this most famous of American speeches with the contemporary journey of the boys at Greenwood, “The Address” reveals the timeless resonance of Lincoln’s words, while culminating in the triumph of the human spirit.
Admission and refreshments are free of charge. Registration is not required.

Way Public Library invites you to discover rain gardens and their role in storm water management. This workshop will be held on April 24th at 7:00pm.
Rain gardens provide habitat for wildlife, absorb more rain water than a traditional lawn while removing pollutants from storm water, and recharge the ground water. Learn how rain gardens, rain barrels and rain chains can enhance your landscape in this free workshop. Site selection, plant selection, and installation and maintenance considerations will all be covered.
Vicki Gallagher, 577 Horticulturalist, and Judy Hagen, City of Perrysburg Storm Water Management Educator, will be the presenters.
