Dear All,
The Waterville Public Library will not have any toy that cannot be effectively cleaned upon reopening to the public.
So, bye, bye, stuffies. 😢
They have found good homes with disadvantaged families.

The Palermo Community Library is not planning to have stuffed animals/toys
anymore in the children's area. Even before the pandemic, some mothers and
others thought they were just dirt catchers.
