Foreword – October 17, 2022

A few weeks ago, libraries across the country celebrated the freedom to read during Banned Books Week. Public libraries are committed to serving our communities by providing access to materials that “reflect a wide range of views,” as stated in our Collection Development Policy. Our mission to provide access to a variety of viewpoints may result in the inclusion of viewpoints that conflict with the views of individual library users. The library provides a means for library users to express their concerns about an item in the collection, and the process is laid out in our Reconsideration of Library Materials Policy. The first step is to complete a request for reconsideration form. These policies can be found on our website and are available for review at the library. Celebrate your freedom to read each time you come to the library and check out your book(s) of choice!

We’re hosting a new escape room on October 28 & October 29. Are you ready to save the world from a zombie apocalypse by releasing an antidote in time? This experience is family friendly but success is more likely (though not guaranteed) when the group includes a few middle/high school students or adults. Space is limited, and registration is required. Please contact the library at 920-984-3094 or stop in to sign up.

The library will be closed the morning of Wednesday, October 19 for a special shelving project. Library hours on Wednesday, October 19 will be noon-7:00 PM. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Storytime is back on Thursdays at 10:15 AM. Children and their caregivers are welcome to join us for stories, songs, and more!

The library is hosting after-school programs for youth on Tuesday afternoons, 3:30-4:30. The Wired program on October 18 will feature Snap Circuits, and participants will create slime during the Crafter Party on October 25.
