March 7th Newspaper Column

Eclectic might best describe this week’s column – many little things to tell you about, without a discernable theme to tie them together. C’est la vie.

This morning’s Conversation features Larry Behlen talking about the Green Lake County/Ripon Community Foundation and the good work that organization does for other area nonprofit organizations. Please join us at 10:00 in front of the library fireplace for coffee, donuts, and community.

We have another showing of “First Reformed" this afternoon at 1:30, then look forward to “Green Book” as next week’s featured film. Keep your fingers crossed that the weather holds!

We step back in time a bit this weekend, with “That Was Vaudeville” on Saturday morning at 10:00. Madison’s Stephen Lee Rich will walk us through the history of vaudeville, complete with songs and comedy bits. All signs point to a rollicking good time.

The Constant Reader Book Club meets again on Tuesday afternoon, March 12th. This month we’re discussing Sworn to Silence by Linda Castillo, the beginning of her Amish themed mystery series. Join us at 3:30!

We have a bunch of other programs coming up later in the month, ranging from family history to sturgeon, healthy living to Elvis. I told you it was eclectic! You can find more details at

And if programs aren’t really your thing, I should let you know that in February we added 271 new books and 32 new DVDs to the collection. There really ought to be something here for everyone.
