SEEKING VOLUNTEERS FOR NEXT YEAR’S GIRLS WHO CODE CLUB. The Wayland Library Girls Who Code Club is looking for volunteer facilitators for the 2019-2020 academic year. Affiliated with the national Girls Who Code organization (girlswhocode.com) and its mission of closing the gender gap in technology, the Wayland club brings together middle and high school girls for hands-on learning about code and technology. We also have a club for girls in grades 3 to 5. Enthusiasm for working with the girls is required; technical skill is helpful but not necessary, especially if you are willing to learn along with them. If you are interested, or would like to know more, please contact Head of Youth Services Pam McCuen at pmccuen@minlib.net.  If you want to be notified when registration starts for next year’s club, contact Pam as well.

The Wayland Public Library’s Summer Reading Program A Universe of Stories starts on Wednesday, June 12. Sign up for our Summer Reading Program A Universe of Stories starts on Wednesday, June 12, or any day thereafter. This summer we will Read to Bead.  When you sign up you will get a goodie bag, a brag tag, a necklace chain, and a paper log to keep track of your reading. The more you read, the more beads you earn to add to your brag tag necklace.  (You can also sign up online if you prefer, and get your brag tag and goodie bag when you come to the library.)

We are offering lots of entertaining programs throughout the summer, including  a magic show, an indoor Planetarum, a puppet show, a musical performance, craft programs and an Ice Cream Social.  All participants in the children’s summer reading program will be given a free book. The Summer Reading Club is funded by the Friends of the Wayland Library, the Wayland Cultural Council, the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, and the Boston Bruins.
