Join us for a super fun time at the Bounce House! The Child Safety Collaborative Team will be providing a day of summer fun with a bounce house, bean bag toss, hop scotch and more! The fun takes place in the library parking lot on Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Kids in preschool to age 14 are invited. Parent/guardian attendance is requested.
We love science. We love food. What happens when you mix up a batch of science and food? Awesome food science experiments, that’s what! Come and join us Wednesday from 2-3 p.m. in the meeting room for hands-on kitchen chemistry fun as we explore the world of food science. This free program is open to youth of all ages and is brought to you by Douglas County 4-H, Wisconsin Nutrition Education program and UW-Extension. We’ll see you in the kitchen!
We’ll be showing old-time movies again on Thursday from 2-3 p.m. in the meeting room. We will be presenting Laurel and Hardy and Little Rascals film clips. All ages are invited.
There’s still time to check out our art window for July. Our artist, Al Gagne, is a fish woodcarver from Superior. He recently participated in the World Fish Carving Championships held in Springfield, Ill. He placed first with two of his fish carvings, a steelhead and a bluegill. He is displaying these and many others in our library’s art window to your right as you enter the lobby doors.
We apologize that the library has experienced a number of internet and computer outages during the past three weeks. The problem stems from the network that serves all the Northern Waters libraries. It has caused our catalogs and public computers to have little or no internet service. We believe the problem has now been fixed. Thank you for your patience.
