Lots and lots of new books coming in this month, folks, so be sure to check the table (and the library website!) often. We’re sure you will find something just right.
Have you stopped in yet to see the art works on display by John Balian? This Thursday evening (May 17) is an excellent time to view them, as his daughter, our very own Lecia, is hosting an artist’s reception in his honor. Come for the art, the stories, the food, or all three – just plan to come. The reception runs from 5-7:00 p.m.
We have a terrific program coming up a week later. Thursday afternoon, May 24th, brings Bill Jamerson to the library for an afternoon performance of “The Dollar-a-Day Boys.” Bill’s program is a musical tribute to the young men who worked in the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression. Between 1933 and 1942, roughly 92,000 young men worked in CCC camps in Wisconsin - fighting fires, building state parks, setting up telephone lines, and more. Come hear their stories and songs. The program begins at 1:30 and will be held outside on the library lawn, weather permitting, so bring along a lawn chair. Hope you can join us.
