The new year was ushered in at noon at the Lockport branch of the White Oak Library — with a little help from Wonder Woman and Spider-Man. 

Ninety-seven people crammed into an event room on the library’s second floor for the celebration at noon on Dec. 31. For a lot of parents with young kids, it’s hard to stay up to see the ball drop at midnight.
