The Friends of the Library’s Fall Bazaar & Quilt Raffle are fast approaching!  Get your raffle tickets for $1 each and have a chance at winning the comfy cozy quilt made and donated by Sharon Wrege.  A variety of other donated raffle prizes are on display at the library too.  Saturday, September 29th from 9 AM to Noon stop by the library to buy raffle tickets, a bag or two of used books, and/or bake sale items.  Felt ornaments made by Terry Jokinen will also be on sale.  There will be a tea table with refreshments.  New this year will be a Story Hour with crafts for the kids and young at heart.  Stop by at 9:30 to listen to a story being read and then enjoy painting on rocks with Terry Jokinen.  The drawing begins at Noon with Sharon Wrege’s quilt.

Library School Storytime will continue to meet on Thursday mornings at 9 AM through October.   We share a story, song, rhyme, and make a craft project.  All children are welcome to attend with an adult caregiver.  Sing, listen, and craft as your child is able with your help.  Sign-up by calling (715-274-8331) or stopping by the library.  This week we’ll be reading, “From Head to Toe” by Eric Carle.

Conversation & Crafts meets Thursday nights at 7 PM.  Everyone is welcome to bring their own handcraft projects.  Share ideas and patterns, learn something new or just stop by and visit.

Thursday, September 27th at 7 PM we will be painting rocks.  Bring smooth rocks and your imagination.  We will have paint, brushes, Mod Podge, and a variety of ideas to spark your creativity.  This will be in conjunction with Conversation & Crafts.
