Merry Christmas to all!

Wishing all of our patrons a safe and happy holiday.
The WEAD Library will reopen on Wednesday, December 27th.

The Wead Library is closed today!

Due to inclement weather and threatening road conditions, the Wead Library will not open today, December 19, 2017. The Library is part of the Malone Central School System and as such follows the scheduling for weather-related school closures. If the schools are closed, the library is closed.  Early dismissals due to weather may also affect the library’s closing time. If you are unsure, call ahead 518-483-5251. If no live person answers the phone, we are closed. Thank you for your understanding and stay safe and warm.

Merry Christmas!

It’s that busy time of year. What with decorating our homes for the holidays, visiting Santa, shopping, wrapping and baking, is there any time for a good book? There is and it is when you want to steal that little bit of “me” time on a cold, winter evening, a Christmas treat just for you alone. What greater way to unwind from all the hustle bustle of the season than to hunker down with a good book, maybe some egg nog, and a comfy chair? At the library this week we have all sorts of new offerings for your winter reading enjoyment. We have books about the life of a famous baker as well as a now famous father, Khizer Khan. There are books titled, “The Kingdom of the World”, “The Floating World” and “The Library at the Edge of the World”.
