Adults can help to “Build A Better World,” too!

To go along with our Summer Reading Club theme “Build A Better World,” children and teens at Way Library are helping their favorite charities by accumulating minutes of reading. At the end of July, those minutes will be turned into monetary donations by our generous sponsor, O-I. We know our adult patrons have big hearts, too, and would like to be included. So, are you ready to get started building a better world? Beginning June 5th and continuing through August 3rd you can donate much-needed items to The Cocoon Shelter, a local organization that works with victims of domestic violence.

Bring in any (or all!) of the following items to Way Public Library:

  • toilet bowl cleaner
  • sponges/scrub brushes
  • mops/mop heads
  • large black trash bags
  • new women’s underwear, all sizes
  • tote bags/reusable shopping bags
  • 8 ½ x 11 copy paper

In this free class on June 5 at 6:00pm students will learn how to treat bleeding, sprains, broken bones, shock and other first aid emergencies. This class also teaches critical skills to respond to and manages an emergency until EMS arrives. If you would like to learn First Aid but do not need a course completion card this class is for you. It is ideal for students, parents, grandparents, babysitters and others interested in learning how to save a life.

Registration for this free class is required online or at the Way Library Information Desk.
