Bardfest is going full steam, and we have all sorts of opportunities for you to participate!
This Thursday evening (6:30) we’re showing Kenneth Branagh’s film version of Much Ado About Nothing. Saturday morning at 10:30 brings A Midsummer Night’s Dream. And Sunday finds Shakespeare himself stopping by for a visit at 2:00. You won’t want to miss To Be! Shakespeare Here and Now. Tuesday evening at 6:30 Ripon College Theatre Professors Kenneth and Susan Hill present “Global Shakespeare: Teaching and Producing Shakespeare in the Contemporary World” about the joys and challenges of directing Shakespeare’s works with young actors. It’s a veritable feast of Shakepearean delights!
We’re busy with some modern day activities, too. The library is pleased to serve as a collection point for the Quad County November Diaper Drive, coordinated through the Department of Health and Human Services. We’re also gearing up for the Angel Tree program, starting later this month. And we continue to be a Green Lake County Food Pantry drop-off location. The need for all of these programs continues to be great, and we are happy to play a part.
