Easter Handmade Candy & Bake Sale-Williams House, 14 Old Winthrop Road

The Friends of the Library are holding their Easter Candy & Bake Sale on the two Saturdays before Easter. There will be handmade chocolates, a wonderful variety of homemade baked goods, and a spring boutique table. And, as always, you are welcome to shop for gently used books. Jan Folk and her term are gearing up to make chocolate bunnies, ducks, eggs, chocolate lollipops, chocolate covered cherries, an assortment of bars, turtles, peanut butter cups and more. The chocolates, a Wayne tradition for more than 25 years, sell out quickly. For a good selection come early.


A reminder that the library has a small but nice collection of jigsaw puzzles to lend.  Most are 500-1,000 pieces, so of course, we’ll adjust the borrowing period accordingly.


 Every SATURDAY, 1:30 – 3:30

Cary  invites all needleworkers who are looking for a comfortable sunny spot to work on any project with like-minded folks for a couple hours each Saturday.  We provide a space with easy chairs and table space with a view of the water and eagles. Bring your project and share some time together. We have guidance available from our knitting expert Elaine Briggs.


Every WEDNESDAY, 3:00 to 4:00 pm

We are pleased to offer a comfortable easy space for new parents
