SUPERIOR — As summer winds down, so does Superior Public Library’s Summer Reading Program.
Make sure to stop by the library to collect the prizes you’ve earned by Aug. 31. Stay tuned for details of our new fall reading program for kids, teens and adults.
Chelsea Thompson from the Aging & Disability Resource Center of Douglas County will visit the library Thursday, Aug. 24 at 1 p.m. for a special Capturing the Memories Storytime. Participants will make a memory book craft, have a snack and read "Lucy and Grandpa: A Story about Love and Dementia." Each child receives a free copy of "Lucy and Grandpa." To sign up, please call 715-395-1322.
The Friends of the Library are gearing up for their annual book sale. The sale will be held Sept. 16 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sept. 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the library. Items in the large meeting room will be available by donation, while items next door in the “best” room will be priced individually.
Stop by and find fantastic bargains on a wide array of books including picture books, cookbooks, bestsellers, self-help books, young adult titles and much, much more. Your purchases will help support the library all year long.
Join us for our September book club and discuss “The Night Watchman” by Louise Erdrich, the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel based on the extraordinary life of her grandfather who worked as a night watchman and carried the fight against Native dispossession from rural North Dakota all the way to Washington D.C. We’ll meet Sept. 8 at 10:30 a.m. and Sept. 29 at 6 p.m. to discuss the book. A limited number of copies of the book are available upon request at the Circulation Desk, or you may download the digital version using the Hoopla app. If you’d like to participate virtually, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Starting in September, free yoga is back at the library. Superior YMCA health & wellness director Jen Rosnau will lead a free, all-levels yoga class one Saturday per month at the library. Join us Sept. 10 at 10:30 a.m. for the first free class. Upcoming dates will be Oct. 8, Nov. 19, and Dec. 10. This class is perfect for ages 12 and up. Please bring a yoga mat if you have one. If you’d like to offer a donation for the class, all proceeds will support future library programs.
The library will be closed Sept. 3-5 for the Labor Day holiday. We will reopen on Sept. 6. Have a happy and safe Labor Day weekend!
Sue Heskin is the director of the Superior Public Library.
