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!
Sherry Brownlow displays some of her collection of Wild Rose memorabilia and ephemera in the display case in the lobby of the Library/Community Center.
Over the years, Sherry has collected butter wrappers from the creamery, glasses and cups and other objet d' art - stop by and give them a look!
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!
