WATERVILLE, Maine. (WABI) - Staffers at the Waterville Public Library are getting ready to go to Washington, D.C. to receive a big honor.
The library was one of ten picked for the National Medal for Museum and Library Service, which is the nation's highest honor for libraries.
The library has a lot of special programs this summer- from anime clubs, to game and movie nights for teens, as well as several arts and crafts programs.
Monday is the start of an all-new family program series to encourage healthy eating for kids.
"Thursday, we have a really exciting program happening here in downtown Waterville, sponsored by the Waterville Public Library and Waterville Creates! That program will be our 25th volume of, oh I won't say this right but I'll try, PechaKucha Waterville. So PK is easier, or Pikachu, lots of people say it lots of different ways and it's really a story time for people of all ages," said Library Director Sarah Sugden.
That event takes place Thursday night in Castonguay Square.
