Of course, Mitchell's Ice Cream will be serving sundaes from a tent in the parking lot from 6-8 PM. Popular flavors include Vanilla, Chocolate, and, special to the library, Porter Peppermint Patty! Friends of WPPL subsidizes the cost of the sundaes so the public pays only $1.

Make sure the kids take a turn at the Cake & Cookie Walk –a 50¢ round might win you one of our delicious cookie and cake choices. We'll also have face painting for kids!

Friends of WPPL looks forward to your attendance at this fun, annual community event! Parking is available at the library and across the street at the post office. Happy Summer!
