The library closes Saturday-Monday for the Labor Day holiday. We will be open regular hours again Tuesday. We hope you have a nice Labor Day holiday.
I’m pleased to report that our summer reading program was a big success. We had 119 children complete the entire program, meaning each child read at least 16 books. Thank you to all who participated. Thank you to the Kiwanis Club of Superior also for lending its talents to our summer story time. The children loved having new readers each week.
September is Library Card Sign-up Month. Does your child have a library card? As school begins in September, now would be a great time for him or her to get one. In order to get a free card, your child must be at least 5 years old and a resident of Wisconsin. As the parent, you also need to have your own library card.
Your public library card also gives you and your children access to Badgerlink, “Wisconsin’s connection to the world of information.” Badgerlink provides all sorts of online resources from home such as encyclopedias, consumer information, auto repair databases and student homework resources. Go to badgerlink.net and log in with your library card number.
