While we’re busy replacing our carpets and setting up the Creative Media Lab, on site programming will be
limited…that’s why we’re encouraging you to participate in our “Get Caught Reading” photo contest!
During the month of May grab your favorite book (or the one you’re reading at the moment), find a fun place
to read (inside/outside/upside down even) and have someone take your picture! Then, email it to us at to enter for a chance to win a fun prize (TBA)! Submissions will be
displayed on the “Programs & Extras” page of our website. Voting will take place on our Facebook and
Instagram pages beginning May 23rd and ending May 30th. So, tell your friends and family to cast their votes…
and don’t forget to vote yourself! The winner will be announced through social media
May 31st and notified via email!
Thanks to Oneida County (and the stellar assistance of Mid York Library System),
we have more FREE Covid-19 Antigen Rapid Tests to distribute.
Just stop by the front desk during open hours to pick up a box.
Please note, that it is one box per person (each box containing 2 tests).
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
invitations when WPL creates events on our own calendar. You’ll receive an email stating what the
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)!

Memorial Day Parade

Anyone interested in joining the Memorial Day Parades should
reach out to the Waterville Legion.
(As seen on the Village of Waterville Facebook page)

The drive through diaper giveaway is back!! Join us Saturday, May 21st from 9am- 12 in the Waterville United Methodist Church parking lot. No preregistration is required. We will be giving out one pack of diapers per family. In addition to diapers, we will have prepackaged bags of like-new clothes from infant-4t and baby formula while supplies last. No, this is not too good to be true, we just ask that you only take what you need. We are blessed to have a community that cares to be able to offer this amazing service to you all. If you have any questions at all please message the It Takes A Village Diaper bank through Facebook messenger and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Please mark your calendars, we can’t wait to see you!!
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.
Visit the Waterville Pop Warner Facebook page for updated information.

The biggest reason to turn the picture book shelves? Sunlight through the side door was damaging the beginning of the alphabet! While we plan to save them in other ways too, we hope the books stay bright and beautiful for you this way! Plus, there was still plenty of room for fun!
