Mark your calendars for Wednesday, October 9th! We will be holding a screening of the movie Cheeseheads: A Documentary, followed by a Q & A with filmmaker John Mitchell. Mitchell’s “love letter to Wisconsin” is all about celebrating this state’s multilayered identity while exploring the meaning and purpose of being a
“cheesehead.”

We have refreshed and added to our backpack kit collection! New additions include: yoga, mindfulness, and health and fitness. Each backpack kit has several books, a CD or DVD and at least one interactive activity perfect for family fun!

Have you seen our butterfly house? This handmade haven for monarchs was given to us by patron Alizah, along with three caterpillars that are munching their way through some milkweed. Visit the front counter to view their progress as they build their cocoons and become butterflies!
