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)!
