Friday Morning Chamber Coffee Featured The Wayne Public Library

WAYNE – Community members were invited to the Wayne Public Library at 410 Pearl Street during Friday morning Chamber Coffee starting at 10 a.m.

Chamber Coffee also kicked off the Open House, lasting until 6 p.m. during National Library Week’s campaign of “Libraries Transform”.

Lauran Lofgren is the Library Director and she talked about the library card being free for everyone living in Wayne County. You just need to bring a valid ID showing where you live.

“If your address is not the same as on your driver’s license,” said Lofgren. “So, if you have moved and haven’t updated it yet then we also need some documentation on where you’re actually living.”

A family card is $35 a year for those who live outside Wayne County. A library-card holder or not, anyone who enters the library may enjoy all that they have to offer during normal hours for free.

The Wayne Public Library is open Monday through Thursday (10 a.m. until 8 p.m.), Friday (10 a.m. until 6 p.m.), Saturday (10 a.m. until 4 p.m.) and Sunday (2-5 p.m.). The library will be closed Sunday, April 16 for Easter.

All the volunteers who have assisted the Wayne Public Library were honored for their hard work.

Brain HQ is a new service which was highlighted during Chamber Coffee.

“That will challenge your brain,” Lofgren mentioned. “It keeps the synopsis firing, practice with memory or visual things.”

Brain HQ is a data base that anyone could use 24 hours a day from any computer.

Youth Services Librarian, Julie Osnes highlighted sign-up for summer reading is coming soon.

“We will go to Rainbow World on Tuesday’s and help all the kids up there do the program,” Osnes added. “Then we’ll have Wednesdays 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. and then Teens on Thursdays.”
