Wayne Public Library Young Adults Programs

 

Hi Everyone,  I receive and email from Eleana Cordova who is the Yound Adult Principal Library Assistant for the Wayne Public Library.  She asked me if I would spread the word about YA Programs to reach Parents, Wayne teens and tweens.  If you know someone that would be interested in these programs, please share.  Thank you, Ruby
