February 14th Newspaper Column

Happy Valentine’s Day! Love of all kinds is in the air this week, and that definitely extends to the library.

Today’s Thursday Morning Conversation starter is “What do you love about the Green Lake area?” Conversation, coffee, and donuts in front of the fireplace at 10:00 -  what’s not to love?

Tonight we welcome back our friend Doug Northrop for an examination of romantic love and the changing roles of women in literature. Doug is always wonderful to listen to, and tonight promises to be a wonderful presentation. I hope you will join us at 6:30.

Family love is featured on Friday, as we welcome the return of Family History Fridays. These are perfect opportunities to get some of those perplexing family tree questions untangled. Our genealogy maven Margie is here to assist from 2-3:30 p.m.

Does a young person in your life have a favorite stuffie that has been loved a little too well? We are holding a stuffed animal hospital Saturday morning from 10:00 to noon to help those special friends last a long time. Stitching and stuffing and reattaching services offered courtesy of the library’s knitting group (who happen to be good with all kinds of needles!) – lots of love will go into the repairs, too.

We even continue the theme into next week’s movie – we will show A Star is Born on Tuesday at 6:30 (weather permitting – a lot of these Tuesday nights have been snowy and slippery). Check the library website at www.greenlakelibrary.org or our Facebook page for program details and whether the weather causes any events to be delayed.
