Book Bundles – The Library staff has put together theme bags for checkout.  Call and let us know if a bundle interests you at 715-274-8331.  Or call and challenge us to put together a theme you name.
Winter Activities Bundle:  “Snow Play, How to Make Forts & Slides & Winter Campfires” by Birgitta Ralston – Get outside with the kids or grandkids and create simple sculptures.  This book is full of great ideas from the Lock Ness Monster to ice slides.  “The Snowshoe Experience, Gear Up & Discover the Wonders of Winter” by Claire Walter – Learn a new sport for some winter fun and exercise.  “One by One” by Ruth Ware – A fictional mystery about a weekend retreat at a ski resort.  Leaving the group stranded and cut off from the outside by an avalanche.  The group starts to dwindle one by one.
Series Bundle Suggestion:  Author C. J. Box writes suspenseful thrillers set in the west.  One series features game warden, Joe Pickett and another deputy sheriff, Cassie Dewell.  “Big Sky” a new TV series is based on Box’s novel, “The Highway” which features character, Cassie Dewell.  Of course, I always think the book is better and since I haven’t watched “Big Sky” yet, I can’t say for sure.  But my guess is if you like the show, you’ll love the books.  Check out what we have here in Mellen.  What we don’t have we can borrow from neighboring libraries through Interlibrary Loan.
Winter themed Book Bags with crafts will be ready for pickup next week!  Check out a bag of children’s books and we’ll includes craft projects to keep you and your kids busy on these cold winter days.
Curbside Pickup hours are Monday-Thursday, Noon-6 PM and Friday & Saturday 9 AM-Noon.
