We would like to thank the Superior Police Department for helping the library catch a DVD thief recently.
One person was arrested and 22 stolen DVDs were returned to the library collection. However, there are still some DVDs missing from theft earlier this summer. If you have any information about any stolen library materials, contact the library.
The Friends of the Library have set the dates for its annual Book Sale for April 27-28.
When you are doing your spring-cleaning, consider bringing books, magazines and audio/visual items to the library to donate to their sale. This year they are in special need of children’s books and materials. Since the Friends like to pre-sort items that come in, it is helpful to donate them well before the sale dates. You can bring items in good condition to the library anytime it is open.
The Children’s Room annual Guessing Contest will start Thursday and will last through the month of March. A prize will be given to the lucky child who guesses closest to the actual number of paper clips in our jar.
Storytime for children of all ages will also be held Tuesday from 10:30-11 a.m.
The library is now out of Wisconsin tax forms. Blank forms may be photocopied at the library for 15 cents per page. Forms are also available through the Wisconsin Department of Revenue website, www.revenue.wi.gov. The AARP tax help is still available in the library meeting room from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday and Thursdays through April 9. There is no charge for this help
