Newsletter - Happy Library Week!


It's National Library Week - time to celebrate the community center, information hub, and entertainment mecca that is your local public library. And if you can score some goodies when you visit, so much the better.

We're here to help with that last bit this week. (The rest of the stuff we strive to do year round.) We love to have an excuse to have treats available for our visitors, and a contest or two to up the fun factor, and we'll even throw in a program or concert for good measure. Check out our events calendar and I think you will agree we've got it covered.

We have a number of "first time we're trying this" events between now and the end of the month. One is World Book Night, an international event held annually on Shakespeare's birthday, April 23. Volunteers will be handing out free books at various locations throughout area, all in the hope of promoting literacy. If this sounds like something you would like to be part of in future years, please let me know. We hope to continue to be involved with this effort for a long time to come.

The other new-to-us event is celebrating Money Smart Week from April 21-27. Our friends at Green Lake Bank are putting together some information for library users, and will be sponsoring a shredding event so you can safely dispose of sensitive documents on Saturday, April 27, from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.

Our young friends will want to note that we now have weekly library Lego time for 5 to 8-year-olds on Thursdays after school. Parents and caregivers are welcome to build amazing things, too. And there's still time for kids up to age eleven to enter the Culvers Library Week Coloring Contest and earn a free scoop of delicious frozen custard (entry deadline is April 20).

I hope we've tempted you into stopping in soon!

Bill Jamerson, lumberjack program
Bill Jamerson returns to the library on Wednesday, April 24th for a program about the northwoods lumberjacks
  It's Daylight in
     the Swamp! 
Such was the cry to rouse the teams of lumberjacks who used to work the northwoods of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Upper Michigan. Hear their stories, songs, and some of the tall tales they told to amuse each other when Bill Jamerson visits the library on Wednesday evening, April 24, for a 6:00 concert. Bill is an accomplished filmmaker/musician/historian from Michigan who regaled an appreciative library audience last spring with songs and stories of the Dollar-a-Day Boys. He had so much fun here he asked to return with another program, and we were happy to take him up on the offer. Bill's hour-long program is suitable for all audiences. Special thanks to the Friends of the Library for sponsoring Bill's performance and providing their usual yummy refreshments.
 Fox Cities Swing Band The Fox Cities Swing Band makes a welcome return to the Caestecker Public  Library on Saturday, April 20th from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. I can't think of a better way to wrap up our Library Week celebrations. Please join us for great music in front of the fireplace.
