The last day to turn in reading logs is Saturday, Aug. 3. I always dread this announcement, as it means summer is on the downhill slide and back to school is right around the corner.
This year’s summer reading program, Dig Into Reading, proved to be all kinds of fun for kids, adults and the library staff. Many thanks to all the volunteers who made it possible — your efforts and support make our community a better place.
Traditionally, there are no children’s programs at your library during the month of August. A full schedule of children’s programming will resume after Labor Day.
Your Waukee Public Library has a small secure showcase available for you or your club to display your hobby, collection or information about your organization. Displays must be of general interest and may not be intended to sell products or services. Please see or call Devon at 987-1280 for more information.
Friends semi-annual book sale
Mark your calendar! The Friends semi-annual book and bake sale will be held on Saturday, Sept. 28, 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. in the meeting room of your Waukee Public Library. Book sale donations may be dropped off at the library during regular open hours. Remember, your donations are tax deductible. Please, no encyclopedias, or textbooks more than three years old — they do not sell.
There is something for everyone at the library’s website, www.waukee.lib.ia.us. Renew your books, place holds, access subscription databases, do research, download eAudios and eBooks and more. You may also search the library’s catalog, renew books and place holds from your smart phone.
Sunday hours back soon
Beginning the Sunday after Labor Day, your Waukee Public Library will be open on Sunday afternoons from 1 – 4 p.m.
Your library will be closed the first Friday morning of August for staff training, and will open at 12:30 pm on Friday, Aug. 2.
