You won’t want to miss the annual Friends of the Library Book Sale 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. This year’s sale will be bigger and better than ever. We have something for everyone, including many unique items in our bid room. This year’s sale will open promptly at 9 a.m. Friday with a surprise visit. Who could it be, you ask? Well, these people are sure that our book sale is the “hottest place in town!” Don’t miss our grand opening.
Because of a snowstorm, our “Credit and Credit Reports” program was rescheduled. It now takes place at 6:30 p.m. May 9 in the Library Classroom. Staff from Lutheran Social Services discuss how to build a better credit score and save on loans, and other forms of credit. People who attend will leave with a free copy of their credit report. Reservations are preferred but drop-ins are welcome. Call LSS at 715-394-2054 ext. 5711.
