Well, the short answer is because we were asked. The fine folks behind the upcoming Freeland Film Festival (June of 2018, right here in downtown Green Lake) are collecting gently used shoes and work boots that will be given to people in need of decent footwear. If there are a pair (or three) taking up space in your home, too good to toss out, please consider bringing them in to the library on your next visit. They can be sneakers or sandals, work boots or "nice shoes for work" for kids or grownups. We will have a collection box in the library lobby until Thanksgiving.
We have many events in our WWI centennial series this week, and several more days to view the traveling display from the Wisconsin Veterans Museum. Without further ado:
Tonight (Thursday, November 2) we’re showing the 1938 film Dawn Patrol starring Errol Flynn, David Niven, and Basil Rathbone. That lineup just screams dashing, doesn’t it? Lots of aerial action in this one, and I will be interested to see how the build up to World War II may have colored this film about World War I. The movie starts at 6:30.
