Interested in being a Waunakee Public Library Teen Volunteer for the summer? Teens in grades 6+ are welcome to attend a meeting and learn more about this opportunity. As a volunteer you would be working with children, families and other teens and would be responsible for registering people for Summer Reading Program and helping children and teens check-in and claim prizes. Volunteers must be helpful and friendly! Click here for info on the meeting in May, and here for the volunteer application form.
Outdoors in the Morning
A reminder that students should wait outside on the blacktop behind the middle school in the mornings before school. Please do not cut through the building to get to the back; instead, please go around the building. You should only be in the building before 8:07 if you have a pass or have made other arrangements ahead of time.
If it is rainy when you arrive at school, students will be invited to wait in the cafe as we do during the winter months.
Audiobooks & Ebooks From the LMTC
If you have a device that can download apps, you should be sure to grab the Follett Brytewave K-12 Edition app for listening to audiobooks and reading ebooks from the WMS LMTC collection.
