Just a reminder of the upcoming burn ban this week.
Annual burn ban in effect from March 16 through May 14.
Open burning is the single greatest cause of wildfires in NYS.
Since the spring burn ban was implemented in 2009,
the number of wildfires has decreased by more than 40%.
Watch a Public Service Announcement on open burning and check out
other clips on DEC’s YouTube Channel (leaves DEC website).
When you plan a fire, always check for fire danger in your area on DEC’s online map
(updated every week). Also, local governments may have stricter rules than NYS;
your fire department will have information about local burning laws.
Waterville Pop Warner will be having a Golf Tournament on Sunday July 10th.
It will be a memorial tournament for Ernie Werner who was
instrumental in getting our program up and running.

Your feedback is telling us that you’re not seeing some of our events pop up like you used to!
As so many of you use Gmail and Google Calendar, we thought we would start by offering email

event is, and an offer to add it to your own Google calendar. To opt in to this, just select the event categories
you’re interested in using the following form: This will collect
your email only for the purpose of these Google Calendar notifications. If you don’t have Gmail or
just want more library love, we recommend signing up for WPL’s monthly eNewsletter here: Of course, you can always check the
calendar on our website as well at
(you can use this to reserve the Program or study rooms too)!

As we excitedly anticipate to the installation of new carpet later this spring throughout the Reading Room, Children’s Room and office space, we are in full planning. Every shelf and piece of furniture that is not attached to a wall will be moved, most for the first time since the library was built in 2006! So not only are we anticipating the carpet install needs, but if the spaces could use any shifting when we bring them back together. Please share what future needs or wishes you have (that’s how we meet those needs)…WPL is hoping our community can help us with: STURDY, clean box donations, starting now. – Muscle to move shelves, etc. Details TBA once we know when. But if you have teens who need volunteer hours, we will be able to provide plenty of them!
