 Aging at Home-Wayne Survey   UPDATE: New Survey

The “Aging At Home” committee of Wayne surveyed more than 100 of Wayne’s elders. We learned more about what people in town need. Now we are beginning projects designed to help elderly Wayners and people who have disabilities meet those needs so they can stay in Wayne as they age. We would like your input and/or your help. This survey is for ALL members of the Wayne community. We want to match what people in Wayne want to do for others with what is needed.

Here is the NEW link if you would like to take the survey on line:


Maineinfonet will be moving to a new platform effective March 1.  Currently the state’s Overdrive program has over 1600 items on a waiting list!  The new program will have more content and shorter reserve lists.  Stay tuned as details unfold.  Nothing you need to do now.
