Wayne Public Library Young Adult March Activities

Wayne Public Library, Young Adults

Please find the March events for Young Adults in grades 6-12, offered at the Wayne Public Library.

I send these notifications out a bit early because registration is required as a way to verify attendees and also know if we will have enough kids attending. If we don’t have enough sign-ups by the day before, the event has to be cancelled.

Please call or come in to sign-up.

Thank you!
