Dear Library Lover,

Local Author Book Signing
Meet local Waushara County author of "Noah Thorne" at the Wautoma Public Library. Mark Gengler will be visiting on Saturday, March 8th from 10am to 1pm. Books will be available for sale and signing.

Gengler writes about growing up on a Wisconsin farm in the 1920s when there were unique changes and challenges everyday. Electricity was new, the telephone was in its infancy, and the tractor was replacing the horse to work the fields. Gengler goes into depth on how, for an eight-year-old boy with a curious nature, each day was filled with excitement and wonder.

Ice Age Talk

Take a Step Back in Time with Dr. Jack Steinbring.

History is more than memories written on paper. The evidence of what happened in the long forgotten past is written on the earth itself. It's up to us to reveal the clues, some right in front of us, some buried lightly beneath our feet. If you've ever wondered about
pre-historic Waushara County, the Waushara County Chapter of the Ice Age Trail Alliance and the Wautoma Public Library is hosting a presentation by Dr. Jack Steinbring on Sunday March 9th at 2pm in the library's meeting room. The  presentation is free and fascinating.

Dr. Jack Steinbring, an internationally recognized expert in rock art, will discuss what life was like in the county before the European Settlement. What happened after the ice melted? Who were the first residents of the county? How can we make educated guesses about their daily lives? Where are the effigy and burial mounds located in the area? What was the purpose of these structures? In other words, what history might we be walking past every day?


Dr. Jack Steinbring is an Adjunct Professor of Anthropology at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and an Adjunct Scholar in Anthropology at Ripon College. Prior to these positions, he founded the Department of Anthropology at the University of Winnipeg, Canada, where he taught for 31 years. As the Director of Archaeological Research for the Mid-America Geographic Foundation, he is currently dedicated to the preservation and protection of ancient archaeological sites in North America. A highly qualified, published researcher, Jack is likewise dedicated to public education about these amazing sites.

Miss Penny will be on vacation until the second week of April. ...Fear not though! Storytimes will resume. Join Miss Nicole and the fun on Wednesday mornings at 10:30am.
