Do it Yourself Classes

Every month from September through May the Waverly Public Library offers Do It Yourself classes.

Classes are held the second Tuesday of the month and begin at 6:30 pm. Adults and supervised children are welcome to attend. These classes are made possible by the Friends of the Waverly Public Library who generously purchase all materials and resources needed. 

Registration opens the 1st of each month for each class. Friends members may register two months ahead. Registration is required along with a $5.00 refundable deposit. Deposits may be donated to the Friends of the Waverly Public Library to help offset the class costs. Call or stop at the Circulation or Information Desks to register.
