The library will be closed Saturday and Monday for Labor Day.
Local author and educator, Linda Berg, will be giving a book talk and book signing for her newly published book, “The Kissing Pot,” in the large meeting room at 7 p.m. Sept. 14 at 7 p.m.
Linda has a wonderful, heart-warming story to tell.
September is Library Card Sign-Up Month. Library cards are free for all Wisconsin residents ages 5 and up. Be sure to bring a picture ID and something with a current address for proof of residency.
The children’s room will resume story times on September 22. They will take place every Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. in the children’s room for children ages 3-5. No registration is necessary.
Some more tips for reading aloud to your child: 1. Be expressive. Add sounds. Make the snake hiss and the door creak. 2. Let your child choose. Sometimes kids want to hear a favorite book over and over again. 3. Read rhyming and counting books and recite the rhymes and numbers together. 4. Let your child hold the book, tell the story and read to you, too. 5. As you go through the day, read other things aloud — signs along the street, labels at the grocery store. Talk about what you’re seeing and doing; it builds vocabulary. 5. Stick to it. Make reading aloud a regular, enjoyable daily event.
