Newspaper Column for March 6

After an interesting run of Tuesday night film screenings we’re taking a week off because I will be attending the Public Library Association conference in Indianapolis. We’ll get back to movies on March 18th.

We have some great new books for your reading pleasure in the meanwhile. If you haven’t checked the display table lately you’re in for a treat. New mystery authors, new series by favorite authors, new entries in well-loved series, new narrative nonfiction, new (and hilarious) picture books – no matter your preference we have something you’ll love.

Last month the 1st National Bank in Green Lake had an open house with a twist. Attendees were given “first bucks” and directed to vote for one of four nonprofit groups by placing their buck in a corresponding box. At the end of the open house, $1000 would be divided among the nonprofits according to the votes received. We were thrilled to receive a $510 donation. Next time you stop in at the bank, please let them know you appreciate their giving back to the community.
