The library sponsors a book discussion of the book “The Story of Edgar Sawtelle” at 6:30 p.m. April 12 in the library classroom. The story is set in Northern Wisconsin and references Mellen, Ashland, Bayfield, Superior and Duluth.
This library-sponsored book discussion is in preparation for the Community Book Read and discussion with the author, David Wroblewski, which will be held as a live interactive broadcast coming from the Ashland WITC to the Superior WITC. The public is welcome to participate in that discussion at 6 p.m. April 22.
The Friends of the Library are busy planning their big annual book sale, which will be April 23-24. The Friends accept donations year-round, but would especially appreciate them now and until the week before the sale. They need time to go through them and sort by category, making it easier for you when you come to the sale. Bring your donations to the front desk anytime we are open.
With a grant from the Gates Foundation, we will soon be getting new internet computers.
We will be moving them out to the location of the catalog computers. In anticipation of that change, we have lowered those computer tables. This was a change recommended by the UWS marketing students.
