Since 1934, the Waynesboro - Wayne County Library has been a center of activity in the community hosting several events, ranging from those sponsored by groups locally in our area, to welcoming special guests such as authors and presenters throughout the state.
To host such events, the library has a large meeting room that has been used for events as large as graduations. The library also has a smaller meeting room to accommodate smaller groups of fifteen to twenty people. If you are looking for a quieter place to study or for an area where a very small group of three to five can discuss a team project, our library provides a small study room perfectly suited for such occasions.
Over the years, the library has hosted several authors, such as Walt Grayson and Robert St. John, as well as several seminars to benefit the residents of Wayne County. To see if your organization's event can be held at the library, Please contact Patsy Brewer at 866.735.2268 today.
Author David Pugh
Thursday, March 2 from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m
The Waynesboro-Wayne County Library will host a Book Signing for Wayne County author David Pugh, Thursday, March 2 from 3:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. Paperback copies of his book, Voyage of Freedom: Kayaking to the Coast will be available to be autographed for $10.00 each. Read about David's journey on a solo 170-mile kayaking and camping expedition from the Highway 63 bridge in Waynesboro, down the Chickasawhay River to where Chickasawhay and Leaf Rivers merge to form the Pascagoula River. David paddled the Pascagoula River to the Gulf of Mexico. He arrived at the coast in Gautier, then paddled out into the gulf around Ingalls Shipyard and finished at Pascagoula Point in Pascagoula, Mississippi. He spent eight days and seven nights on the trip, using only the supplies he carried in the kayak.
David kayaked during the day and camped on sandbars along the river at night. Along the way he kept a journal, making notes by the campfire at night and early mornings before leaving out.
His book, Voyage of Freedom is a compilation of those notes put together in a readable format. It includes how the journey came about, what he carried in the kayak, and a day by day description as he explored the magnificent Mississippi waterways.
