Teen Winter Reading Program, Dec 20-Feb 14

It's our first ever Winter Reading Program for grades 7-12!  With the holiday break and those cold winter days, it’s an ideal time to curl up with a good book.  Between December 20, 2014 and February 14, 2015, each book you read (or listen to) will get you a chance to win an Amazon gift card!

Snow is falling... Books are calling!

When you’re done reading, fill out an entry form at the library or online.  And we mean any book you read, even your books for English!  No registration is necessary either.

Check out the After-Hours Lockers, Dec. 7-20

'Tis the season to be very busy.  If you just can't make it to the library to pick up that book, CD or video before we close, we have a service for you!  WPPL has convenient After-Hours Lockers that you can use to pick up your items when the library is closed.

After-hours lockers located on the south side of WPPL

Give the lockers a try between December 7 and December 20, 2014 and find a small thank you gift from the library with your materials (limit one per patron).  Lockers are located just beyond the pick-up window and outdoor book drops on the south side of the building.
