Wayne Public Library To Celebrate 115 Years During Chamber Coffee, Open House

WAYNE – After starting in the basement of the courthouse in 1902, the Wayne Public Library has grown with the community of Wayne. The library will be having National Library Week come to a close with their own celebration.

Join the Wayne Public Library at 410 Pearl Street for Friday morning Chamber Coffee at 10 a.m. The Open House will last until 6 p.m. as cinnamon rolls and cookies will be served all-day long.

Monday was the kick-off date for the 2017 National Library Week. Library Director, Lauran Lofgren said this year’s theme of “Libraries Transform”, goes along with their own library.

“We feel like we kind of embody the theme for Library Week this year,” said Lofgren. “When you think about the changes we’ve had since the first library opened we have transformed quite a bit since then.”

The Wayne Public Library offers materials for community residents in a variety of formats for recreational and leisure pursuits. Also, the library provides accurate and current information for problem solving.

Youth Services Librarian, Julie Osnes added more about the evolvement of the library.

“I hope that we will not only be a good library for this region but be the best one that we can be for this region,” Osnes added. “There’s no reason that we can’t be the best at what we’re doing.”

The Wayne Public Library has been in their current location since July 1997.
