We’re starting a new program at the library next month, and you’re invited. We’ll even have coffee and donuts to sweeten the deal. It’s called “Thursday Morning Conversations” and our plan is for it to be just that – an hour to sit down and talk with a different local guest every week. We’ll have local elected officials and artists, business people and teachers, musicians and heads of non-profit groups. Think of it as your opportunity to get to know some of the most interesting people in the Green Lake area.
We have a bumper crop of new books this week – I just added sixteen new adult fiction titles, four new adult non-fiction titles, and seven movies to the collection this morning. Lots of shiny new things to check out and enjoy! There are about ten new picture books, a couple of children’s novels, new children’s and student nonfiction books, and some teen novels that will be on the shelves by the time the newspaper is published this week. So, no matter your age or interest, there’s probably something new for you to enjoy at the library.
Thank you to everyone who donated, worked, and shopped the Friends Spring Book Sale this past weekend. With such excellent support the friends raised over $1000 that will come back to the community in the form of programs and library materials and scholarships at Green Lake High School. The next sale comes up in a few months, and we accept donations every day the library is open, so if you aren’t quite finished with your spring cleaning keep the Friends in mind. Gently used books, CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes, and puzzles are always appreciated.
