The library will be closed on Friday and Saturday for the spring holiday.
It’s National Library Week next week too. We encourage all area residents to visit the library during that week to take advantage of the wonderful resources available at your library.
Are you looking for a program for your group or club of at least six people? Please consider the library. We offer tours of the library, the Children’s Room, and our beautiful and historical paintings of Superior by artist Carl Gawboy. Contact Nora Fie at (715) 394-8867.
Children ages 11 and younger are invited to stop by the Children’s Room during the month of April to pick up their entries for the Culver’s Coloring Contest. When you return your completed picture, you will get a coupon for a free scoop of Culver’s frozen custard. Everyone’s a winner.
The Friends of the Library are having their big annual Book Sale on 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. April 27 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 28. The Friends accept donations year round, but would especially appreciate them now. Please bring your gently-used book and video donations to the front desk anytime we are open. Children’s books are especially needed this year.
Artist Tom Cline’s wood crafting work will be displayed through the month of April in our lobby art window. Tom has been wood-crafting for about 12 years, and tells us “it’s exciting to watch the willow come alive as you work.” Please stop by and see this lovely collection of furniture and other diamond willow items made from locally-harvested materials.
