The Children's Room at the Superior Public Library is offering a free program at 2 p.m. Wednesday in the meeting room. It is called "Wheels in Motion."
Lynn Ross will present slides and life changing stories of children that were recipients from the Northland 2005 Vietnam Wheelchair distribution. She will not only share her personal insights, but also provide children in attendance with some "hands-on" experiences.
The next author-of-the-month book discussion program will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday in the library classroom. The author discussed will be Iris Johansen. Everyone is welcome.
There are still some books available to borrow for the book discussion series, "A More Perfect Union: To Establish Justice," led by University of Wisconsin-Superior history professor, David Obermiller. The first session is Aug. 15 at 6:30 p.m. in the meeting room. The first book to be discussed will be "A Civil Action" by Jonathan Harr. To borrow this book, stop at the library front desk and ask for it.
The library recently received a donation of $1,000 from CenturyTel. A number of people also gave $310 in honor of Library Board president Joan Laughlin's birthday. The library appreciates everyone who donated books, AV materials, cash and volunteer time in both Superior and at the Solon Springs library.
It helped Solon Springs to have the busiest month ever with 2,170 items checked out in July and for Superior to have checked out more items this July than July of last year.
We can accept items in good condition at any time the library is open, all year, which we can either use in our collections or sell in the on-going Friends book corner.
