Grand Opening and June Library Hours




Superhero Summer Reading Program

Superhero Summer Reading Program

Come celebrate the Grand Opening of the WME (Watson, Mason, Edgewood) Community Library on June 8.

We will be there from 3pm-7pm and kicking off our inaugural Superhero Summer Reading Program.

During our grand opening, we are also available to issue library cards. Cost is $5 per family. The WME Community Library serves citizens of Watson, Mason, Edgewood, and West and Union Townships.

Bring your children to register for their Superhero Reading Adventure. The odyssey begins June 8 and runs until August 1.

(No library card needed. Anyone can participate in library activities.)

Kids will start off with their own Superhero book tote:


Which will include a WME Summer Reading Program calendar of events, and a few other top secret goodies. Scheduled activities include: Story time for children of all ages every other Tuesday at 10am, crafts, a super hero movie night (Big Hero Six for the younger children and the latest Avengers release for the older set), as well as an end-of-summer rewards party. We will have weekly prizes available for all participants who meet their goals, and a drawing for a bicycle at the end of the program.

Our Children’s’/Young Adult section will be open as well as a selection of adult popular fiction and nonfiction.  We will also provide two computers, with free internet access, and a printer to the public during library hours.

Other highlights include: Community computer classes and activities for all ages.

This fall, we will be expanding our adult selection as well as creating the very special Willow Tree Children’s Library Lounge, dedicated to the memory of Willow Long. This will feature an inspired mural by local artist Jamie Stang.


June Hours:

Mondays: 3pm-7pm

Tuesdays: 9am-11am

Wednesdays: 9am-11am

Thursdays: 9am-11am & 2pm-7pm
