December 6th Newspaper Column

Breakfast with Santa and the Friends Book and Cookie Sales were this past Saturday, and were a smashing success. I am so grateful for volunteers (and husbands) who made multiple trips to replenish supplies as needed. And for the patience of  our breakfasters!

We have had a few requests, so come to the library Thursday afternoon at 1:00 for a Merry Matinee Movie. Think classics.

Flip o’ the Coin, a local group specializing in Irish music, will give a concert in front of the fireplace on Saturday, December 8, at 10:00 a.m. Pat Dobrinska will be here that morning, too, talking with folks after the concert about her latest picture book and signing copies of all three. And we wrap up our Year of the Bird celebrations with a program by Bill Mueller, Director of the Western Great Lakes Bird and Bat Observatory. Bill will be here on Tuesday, December 11, to talk about the birds who stick through the Wisconsin winter with us, and also to give us information on participating in the Christmas Bird Count, the longest ongoing citizen science initiative. Bill’s talk begins at 6:30 p.m. I hope you can join us for one or more of these events!
