Indoor Clean Up at the Library

September 07 at 9:30 am- 3 pm

An average of 170-210 people come through the library in the summer and our building is from the 1860s. We always need help with cleaning. If you are able to help with dusting, sweeping, wiping down elevators, cleaning children's area toys/puzzles, pulling books off shelves and spraying some pledge to get us ready for winter we'd appreciate it.

Outdoor Clean Up at the Library

September 07 at 9:30 am- 3pm
By: Wayne County Public Library
Our Building is from the 1860's so we are always in need of assistance when it comes to keeping it beautiful. We could use help in washing down our front porch, windows, gutters, weeding our back patio, fall prep in the area of cutting back and clearing brush, along with perhaps some planting of perrenials in honor of our Friends Group's 25th Anniversary. If you like to work outside- bring some tools and head up to the Wayne County Library for an outdoor clean up day. We will provide as many tools/as much equipment as possible but if you have something you think might help- please toss it in the car!
