Coffee, Anyone?

A pleasant surprise greeted me at the library recently.  Our coffee station had been brightened with cheery yellow accessories, including a small lemon tree.  Our Friends recently decided to offer coffee from our Keurig at the library.  Jim & Ruth Brennan donated a variety of coffees and now our Friends, Betty White and Kay Reader added the charm.  Stop by if you get a chance make a cup of coffee and enjoy the papers.  Or a lovely visit with a friend.

Our adult fiction and non-fiction titles have been weeded and added to our Friends Used Book Sale.  Stop by and see if you’d like to give one of our withdrawn titles a new home. And remember the Friends of the Library have a Little Free Library at Gilman Park.  Share & borrow as needed.

Register by May 31st for the Two Bellringer Fun Run & save $5. The price goes up June 1.  Paper registration forms are available from the library.  You may register online here:

Please call, 715-274-8331 if you have questions.

I’m looking for some help in collecting plastic covers from water bottles, soda pop, milk jugs, tops from spice containers, laundry detergent, etc.  Please save them and bring them to the library.  There’s a white collection tub to drop them off in.  They will be used in creating an art piece this summer.

A few more Asahi Nordic Exercise classes left before we break for the summer.  Stop by and give it a try on Wednesdays in May at 4pm.

There’s a cute new Take & Make craft for May, a dragonfly. Pick up a project and some books to share with your youngsters.
