This election season is getting hot, so please join us on Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the library classroom. The Literacy Council of Superior/Douglas County will be sponsoring a program in their Hot Topics Tuesdays series. The topic will be “Getting Along During an Election Year,” including last minute notes regarding the Wisconsin voter ID issue. Rob Karwath, representing the Duluth-Superior Area Community Foundation, will introduce the nine pillars of civility and how we can use them to help us get along in this contentious time. The evening will include a time for questions and refreshments. Contact Sue Hendrickson, council chair, at (715) 398-7213 for more information.
Bailey the Dog will be back on Oct. 6 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Children’s Room Storyboat. Children sign up the day of the program to read to Bailey, the therapy dog, who is an excellent listener. Not only does reading to a dog help beginning readers feel more comfortable and confident with their reading skills, it’s really fun, too.
Save the date! The Library’s third annual Halloween trick-or-treat event, Famous Witches & Wizards, will take place Oct. 26 from 10 a.m. to noon and again from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. This not-so-scary, fun, family event will be free and open to all.
