Everyone at the Superior Public Library would like to wish you a very happy holiday season. For the Christmas holiday, the library is closed on Friday through Monday, but will be open regular hours — 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. — on Dec. 31. The library is closed Jan. 2 for the New Year Holiday.
Please plan ahead for your library visits and returning materials during the holidays.
Did you buy your loved one a Nook or Kindle e-reader, a tablet computer or a smartphone for the holidays? Let them know they can check out e-books from the library for their devices, just like regular books. The cost of bestselling e-books has gone up a lot this year, with the e-book edition sometimes costing as much or more than a print edition. Those same titles might be available free at the library. Check it out by searching our online catalog at merlin.nwls.lib.wi.us.
There are some interesting items in the library’s display cases through the month of December. The antique Christmas ornaments displayed are compliments of Crystal O’Sullivan of Allouez Antiques. There is also a display of snow globes compliments of staff member Susan Mattson.
