Friends and Neighbors come to hear Jerry Apps

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!

STEAM into the library in May!

Coming in May, we are excited to have the UW Extension bringing in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) programs to the After School Program at the library every Tuesday until the end of the school year!

Starting on May 9 with "From Playdough to Plato" where the participants wil build structures using toothpicks and playdough, then on March 16, we'll learn about "Wind Energy and Paper Pinwheels", to learn how wind energy works.

Autumn Falls about us!

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!
