Wayne Public Library Late October Events

WAYNE – As the pumpkin painting contest ends today, pumpkins are also due at the library for judging at the Wayne Public Library.

According to the monthly calendar at the library, the pumpkin painting contest began last Wednesday and will conclude on Monday, October 25. Pumpkin painting contest winners will be announced on Wednesday, October 27.

Other late October events taking place at the library will be the ‘Book Club’ meeting from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 26. From the Library Conference room, the group will be discussing ‘The Moonshiner’s Daughter’ by Donna Everhart. Set in North Carolina in 1960 and brimming with authenticity and grit, ‘The Moonshiner’s Daughter’ evokes the singular life of sixteen-year-old Jessie Sasser, a young woman determined to escape her family’s past.

Toddler Time will continue on Wednesday and Thursday, October 27 – 28 at 10 a.m. from the library. Plan on joining miss Kim for stories, music, dancing, busy bags and more. Meet other parents and kids in the area and learn about the various services and reading programs the library offers.

Another special event will be ‘Inktober’ at the Library this Friday from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. Participants will draw together for the 2021 ‘Inktober’ challenge.
