Way Public Library is closely monitoring information about the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The health and safety of our patrons and staff is a top priority. Currently the library is open and operating under our normally scheduled hours. However, all programs have been suspended through April 19, 2020 due to an abundance of caution.
We are ushering in the New Year with a new online calendar! Packed with tons of new features and an easier to use interface, we think you will love our new calendar for years to come!
Many of you are familiar with our older calendar’s ability to allow self-registration for popular events such as Storytime or computer classes, but this new system will also allow you to self-register for other library features, like One-On-One Technology Help and Meeting Room bookings. While we are not quite ready to roll out all the new features, we hope to have them available in the weeks to come.
Keep an eye on this space, Facebook, and our official website for these upcoming service options. You can visit our new online calendar by following (and bookmarking!) this link: https://waylibrary.libcal.com/calendar?cid=12045
