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.
The Village of Waterville will begin accepting applications for the NYS CDBG grant.
This grant is for low-to-moderate income home owners within the Village.

The last Friday of March is this week (time and stuffed animals wait for no one)!
This month, the animals get to hang out together for a Stuffed Animals Only Sleepover at the library!!!
Bring your animal to Kids Club on Friday, March 25th at 4 pm (or later if needed).
You can help get them settled with some games, a name tag, stories, crafts, etc.
Then, they get to enjoy the library after we humans all leave! With cameras set up,
we’ll share photos of their adventures with you when you come to pick them up any time
the following week. Don’t worry (or maybe worry), Pigeon said he would take good care of all our new
friends! If it’s too hard to bring your favorite animal, we hear you. Bring anything from
a less important stuffed friend to a spatula with googly eyes. Our library friends are accepting and all are welcome!

The exciting news you’ve been waiting for!
Please join us in welcoming Madden Barnes as WPL’s head of Youth Services!
A library patron of many years, Madden worked and volunteered for WPL during her high school career.
In the years that followed, we found ourselves writing letters of recommendation for her that highlighted
the compassion and grit with which she lives and works. One such recommendation was in confidence of
her capability to take over as the Waterville Summer Recreation Director, when we were then able to work with her collaboratively (and watch her shine). While we are sad to snatch her up from that position (as she was an asset to our community), we are excited to welcome her to consistently work with the youth and families of our community! Madden will re-join us in mid-May, and
we anticipate an absolutely wonder-filled journey ahead!
