Coming Events

Thank you from the Board Chair

The Whitewater Region Public Library Board would like to thank everyone who helped make our Summer Family Fun Fest a great success.
We hosted over 300 guests and everyone had a wonderful time.  Our community certainly stepped up to show its support for us.  The face painters and bouncy castle were an enormous hit and we'll be sure to enhance this for next year.
I'd like to thank the staff at the Cobden rink, Whitewater Township office staff, RyJ Climbing Adventures, Whitewater Region Fire Department, The Cobden Agricultural Society, our library assistants and librarians and members of the board.
I'd especially like to thank my family, friends and the students who gave up their day to work non-stop during our event.
