What a wonderful night last night (Wdnesday, Sept. 23)! It was the Autmnal Equinox, and we hosted a book launch for Jerry APps' newest book: Wisconsin Agriculture: a history. According to the Wisconsin Historical Society Press' official liason, Halley Pucker, we had 75 attendees. The Friends, Volunteers and Staff of the library did an amazing job of making and setting up the food, and keeping things neat and tidy - I can not thank them enough for their hard work!
The Art of Reubey S. Ferris, mother to Wild Rose resident Mary S. Gilbert, will be displayed at the Patterson Memorial Library throughout the month of June, along with the captivating story of Ferris's life. Her art spans many years and two conitnents, an much of her local art was done from vistas she found around Hancock.
Please come in and enjoy these beautiful paintings!
Well, it's Autumn! It finally feels a little like it, and some of the leaves in the village are beginning to turn, and fall to the ground!
Things are settling in around the library - Mr. Kent's Storytime is going quite well with some old friends and some new friends as well! I encourage you to bring your little ones - any ages - to Storytime. We read books, sing songs, do fingerplays, and create some kind of craft. We also have a small treat, like cookies and milk or juice!
