Complete the challenge by Sept. 6 and you can enter your name in a drawing for a free book sponsorship – your name on the dedication plate of a new library book and you get to be the first to check it out of the library. Challenge forms are available at the library.

we will be holding a 6 week interactive program for kids entering Kindergarten ONLY on Saturday mornings, between July 9th and August 13th.

The Play K curriculum consists of materials and activities for six different playscapes, or “play and learn centers”. Each playscape is designed around an early childhood theme, or topic, to explore. A big idea, together with one or more essential questions, provide focus for the learning experiences.

Playscapes  we will be using include: All Aboard!, A Home for Me and A Home for You, Let’s Go Shopping, All Around Town, Amazing Animals: Pets, My Colorful World.

Congratulations to our Story Class Graduates!!! We will miss you, but you are all going to Rock Kindergarten!!!!

 The Wyalusing Public Library is now part of the PA Forward Pilot program.

PA Forward will promote and benefit all libraries. For academic libraries, the campaign will strengthen the public’s perception that academic institutions provide great benefits to their local communities by sharing resources and services with the community as well as students and faculty. For school libraries, PA Forward will reinforce what experience tells us – that students in schools with strong libraries learn more, get better grades, and achieve higher test scores than their peers without libraries.

For public libraries, PA Forward will position them as essential to a growing customer base of private and municipal organizations and individuals. It will also position them as high-quality early learning providers that ultimately save taxpayer dollars otherwise needed for remedial programs.
