Upcoming Wayne Public Library Events

WAYNE – With Wayne Community Schools gearing up for the start of school, the Wayne Public Library still plans on hosting several great events.

According to a release, weather permitting, all day today will offer ‘Chalk the Walks’ at the library.

The first day of school for students at Wayne Community Schools is Wednesday, August 17 with a noon dismissal. The Wayne Public Library will then be hosting a back-to-school coloring and root beer float event starting at 1 p.m.

The weekly needle night group will meet on Thursday, August 18 at 6:30 p.m. Participants can enjoy conversation and good company while working on their personal needlework projects. All kinds of decorative sewing and textile arts handicrafts are welcome. Another needle night evening will be on August 25.

The Wayne State College Fall semester will then begin on Monday, August 22.

Teens and adults are invited to sign-up for a Tuesday, August 23 activity at 6 p.m. during ‘Create with Canva Workshop’. Canva is the most accessible and widespread tool for graphic design from beginner to pro-level. Use Canva to create everything from merch, to flyers, invitations, short videos and Instagram posts with accessibility on virtually any device.
