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.

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!

…AP US History students had a Depression Era/World War II Rationing themed food party!
For extra credit, students could make a recipe that was popular during the Great Depression or from
a World War II rationing cookbook. 👩‍🍳Some of the recipes students made included Applesauce Cake,
Hoover Stew, Potato Bread, Chocolate Pie, Irish Soda Bread, Oven Fried Cornbread, Depression (Wacky)
Cake, Wartime Molasses Cookies, Hot Milk Cake, Potato Soup, and Peanut Butter Bread.
Students had to present their recipe to the class, along with the reasons that it was
popularized during the Great Depression or why the recipe was used during WWII rationing.
