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.
This is Money Smart Week and our friends at Green Lake Bank have an informational display up in the library. They also brought over some fun activity sheets for kids and grown-ups. We’ve added a few books available to check out (it’s just what we do) to completely fill up the table. I hope you stop in, pick up some good information, and enter the “guess the number of pennies in the jar” contest. Wrapping up the week-long commemoration, this Saturday morning from 9-11:00 an industrial-sized shredder will be parked in the library parking lot so you can safely and securely dispose of sensitive documents.
Also on Saturday morning, the library welcomes pianist Alicia Rhyner, violinist Kasen Rumph, and some of Alicia’s piano students for a concert/recital. The music starts at 10:00 in front of the fireplace.
Our movie series wraps up on Tuesday evening, April 30, with a screening of Silver Linings Playbook, for which Jennifer Lawrence picked up the Best Actress Oscar. Showtime is 6:30.
