In a tribute to the late playwright Edward Albee (1928-2016), the WPL Play Readers will perform a reading of scenes from one of his most famous plays, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? The play examines the breakdown of the marriage of a middle-aged couple, Martha and George. Late one evening, after a university faculty party, they receive an unwitting younger couple, Nick and Honey, as guests, and draw them into their bitter and frustrated relationship.

Mary Heffernon as Martha
Neel Pizinger as Nick
Helen Miller as Honey
Narrated by Terry Remeika

Love those appointment reminders via text from your dentist or hairdresser? Now the Library offers a similar service called Shoutbomb. You can renew your items with a few simple commands, receive notifications when holds are ready or items are almost due or overdue, and keep track of all your family members’ items on a single phone. Additionally, you can register to receive important library updates like emergency closings via text.
To sign up for the service, text the word SIGNUP to email@example.com. You will receive a reply asking for your library card number. Text your card number (found under the barcode). You will receive a confirmation text. If you would like to opt in to our news alerts, text the word WANEWS. The full list of commands is available at: https://is.gd/SBhelp.
