It’s Love Your Library Month and to celebrate, we invite you to take part in our online scavenger hunt! The hunt takes place on our library website to help you discover all the things you can access online from anywhere. You'll find the clues and space to enter your answers here, at this link:
Complete all the clues in the hunt with reasonably correct answers (they don’t have to be exact), provide your name and contact info, and you will be entered into a drawing for one of three Kindle Fires! What’s not to love?!
The scavenger hunt will be open through February 29th, and winners will be announced on March 1st on our Wayne Libraries Facebook page. You do not have to have a library card to enter, but you should be a resident of Wayne or Pike County. 




Michael Lashutka of Fawn Lake Forest has been named the recipient of the Hawley Public Library’s Charles and Alma Hames Volunteer of the Year Award for 2015.

In making the announcement, Library Executive Director Maura Rottmund lauded the honoree for taking on the responsibility for Used Book Sales and increasing many times over the funds raised by the ongoing project. “We love him. He’s done a great job for our Library,” Rottmund said.

A frequent Library user, Lashutka relocated the fundraiser to the Library’s first floor across from the Main Desk.  He is constantly, almost daily, reshuffling the display to focus on the most popular offerings including, in addition to hard covers and paperbacks, CD’s, DVD’s, art works, posters and the like.


Shoppers will find very low prices including 50 cents for paperbacks and $1.00 for hardcovers.  Commenting on the low pricing, Lashutka says “There is no point in keeping the books.  My goal is to sell them and to encourage reading.” Currently he has a “Special” offering CD’s three for $1.00, DVD’s $1.00 each, children’s books five for $1.00, and classics 25 cents each.

 “He has great marketing skills and is extraordinarily creative,” says Deb Corcoran, the Library’s Assistant Director.  She notes that now, more often than not, when Library users come into the building they head first for Used Books to check out “what Michael’s current display might be.”  Now thanks to the popularity of the Used Books, a second display area has been added just behind the Main Desk.

Lashutka credits as his inspiration an old friend, Bob Skibinski, a retired business teacher, who used to run the Used Book Sale at the Wayne County Library. “He got me into volunteering and especially working with used books as a fundraiser.”


The Hawley Library Board of Directors established the Charles and Alma Hames Volunteer of the Year Award in 2000. All of their lives the couple had been dedicated community volunteers constantly giving freely of themselves and Mrs. Hames was one of the Library’s founders. 

Other Hames Award recipients have been: Caryl Schaeder, 2000; Nancy Parke, 2001; Betty Crissy, 2002; Carole Pederson, 2003; Marie Williams, 2004; Norma Anderson, 2005; Joan Nilsen, 2006; Grace Frisbie, 2007; Patricia Spruce, 2008; Gloria Cagnacci, 2009; Barbara Novak, 2010; Fred Hiris, 2011; Fanny Marshall, 2012; Penny Hughes, 2013; and Barbara Scofield, 2014.

"A library outranks any one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never-failing spring in the desert." ~ Andrew Carnegie

Your gift will help the library serve its community in essential ways--through reading, technology, programs and comfortable space for all ages. There are also many ways to give--as a donor, as a volunteer, and in the form of a planned gift for the future. We thank you for your generosity and support!
