If you are among the lucky folks who receive their paper on Wednesday afternoon, have we got a great idea for your Wednesday evening! Bill Jamerson, the musician/historian/filmmaker who visited here last spring with his songs and stories of the CCC Camps, is returning to the library. This time around lumberjacks take the spotlight. “It’s Daylight in the Swamp” will celebrate the hardworking men of the northwoods. Bill’s program is tonight (April 24) at 6:00. Light refreshments will be served, courtesy of the Friends of the Library.
We’ve been celebrating all week with patrons of all ages. We’re saving the best for last, though, so there’s still time to get in on the fun.
This Saturday morning (April 20th) we welcome the Fox Cities Swing Band to the library. Wondering how we can fit an 18-piece jazz band into the area in front of the fireplace? Me too! But they did it last year, and I’m happy I will be able to see and hear them this time around. All the jazzy fun starts at 10:30. Hope to see you then.
Next week is National Library Week, and we hope you will stop in to help us celebrate. Culver’s is in on the celebration, too, sponsoring their annual Library Week book-themed coloring contest for kids up to age eleven. If the young people in your life haven’t yet picked up an entry sheet, bring them by. Entries are accepted through April 20th, and every participant receives a coupon for a free scoop of frozen custard. Yum!
