The kids are out of school and we're already hearing from some of our families that they are bored. Have no fear, the library's here!

Tomorrow afternoon (June 16) we'll be hopping - literally. Randy Korb, Wisconsin's "Frog Guy" will be here with an array of little hopping friends to learn about and hold.

Next week brings the Scholastic Book Fair, a major "book-raiser" for the kids and teen sections. We receive "Scholastic dollars" for every item sold, which we then use to purchase new books. They have a wide selection of titles for babies through adults, so I hope you will shop for the kids. Those unable to make it to the library during the sale are invited to shop the Book Fair online beginning Sunday, June 17th.

Add in an acting workshop, our annual ice cream social, and a highly anticipated program on Great Lakes shipwrecks, and boredom will be a thing of the past.

As always, we invite you to check the library website for all the latest news and events.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Divers surveying a Lake Superior shipwreck for the Wisconsin Historical Society
Great Lakes Shipwrecks Program on June 26th

us on Tuesday evening, June 26, for a presentation on the Wisconsin Historical Society's Maritime Preservation and Archaeology Program. George Mayhew, volunteer research diver, will be here to talk about some of the projects he has worked on over the last decade.

Wisconsin waters hold one of the world's best collections of eighteenth and  nineteenth century shipwrecks. The icy waters of Lakes Superior and Michigan maintain these shipwrecks (over 700!) in an excellent state of preservation. The Maritime Preservation and Archaeology Program has been working since 1988 to document and preserve these vessels, making the information available to residents across the state and around the world. Much of the work is done by volunteers like George, who come from all over the country for the chance to study our "underwater museum" of shipwrecks.

The program will begin at 6:30. Scuba gear not required    :)  
    Missoula Children's Theatre Free Acting Workshop!

Young people ages 7-13 are invited to participate in a free acting workshop presented by professional actors from the Missoula Children's Theatre company on Tuesday afternoon, June 19th, from 1-2:00 p.m.

Creativity is the name of the (theatre) game, and young aspiring actors and actresses will be shown how to use their imaginations to bring excitement to performance.

This is the third year the good folks from Missoula have put on an acting workshop at the library. We appreciate their work to include our young acting enthusiasts.

Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Library, who we appreciate every day.
