Read Across WI 3/24/2021

Legion Memorial Library, as part of the Northern Waters Library Network (NWLN), invites you to participate in the first Read Across Wisconsin (March 1 – April 10, 2021), in honor of Read Across America. We’re inviting patrons from all 29 NWLN libraries to submit photos of all the creative and different ways you may read.  Submit photos of you or your loved one reading to another person, to a pet, outdoors, in a different position other than sitting, by a local landmark, with your favorite book or with your favorite beverage or snuggle blanket. All photos will become part of an online gallery.

Please email your photos with your name, library name, a picture (.jpg or .png format) to [email protected] and using the subject line of “Read Across Wisconsin.” By submitting your image(s) to NWLN you agree that you are the original owner of said image(s) and that you give NWLN consent for the use of the image(s) for reproduction, public display and distribution.

Spring color is showing in our library windows.  Names of those dropping off coloring pages for our “Help Decorate the Library for Spring” project are being put into a drawing for $10 and then their pictures are being posted in the Library’s windows. Each person may enter up to three times.  We have five different age categories:  A $10.00 prize will be given to one lucky winner from each category!  Call the library to request spring pictures to color or drop off your own creations.  Keep your submissions 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 to fit our library window squares.  Please put your name along with your age/grade/adult on the back of each entry.  When complete, just give us a call to let us know when you would like to drop them off or surprise us by leaving them in our book drop.  The deadline for entries is April 12, Drop Everything And Read, D.E.A.R. Day.

Curbside Pickup continues Monday-Thursday Noon-6 pm and Friday & Saturday 9 am-Noon.  Call the library at 715-274-8331 for pickup time scheduling, requests for books, DVDs, and/or magazines, help with eBooks and audio downloads, or just to check in.  We’re here to help.
