Foreword: February 5, 2018

By on

Who’s excited about no school on Friday?  We are!  Don’t forget to let us know if you plan to be here for School’s Out: Sun Catchers and Weather Vanes at 2 pm on Friday.  Here’s how to RSVP: sign up in person at the library, call us at (920) 984-3094, email us at, or send us a message on our Facebook page:  Easy!

“And Best Picture Goes to…” our new February displays!  This month, we’re celebrating Award Season with fan (and academy) favorite movies, as well as a whole shelf full of favorites recommended by our patrons.  If you have a book (or CD, or movie) to recommend, let one of us know the next time you’re here.

We also love to hear from kids.  What is your favorite book and why?    In fact, that’s our table topic this month, and all participants will get a prize.  You will also get a prize for drawing a picture of a bug, even though bugs aren’t our favorite (but maybe they’re yours!)  Our hallway project this month is: “If you were to discover a new insect, what would it look like?”  We can’t wait to see all of the creative ideas you come up with.

It’s tax season again, and if you’re looking for federal tax forms, we unfortunately do not have them.  Don’t panic, though, because there are still a number of ways to get them:
