August 2018 - Marinette County Consolidated Libraries

BioBlitz: County Wide Events

Nature isn’t a place you go, it’s where you live! Join us to explore the nature right here in Marinette County.

Want to get your family off the couch and out for a real life adventure? All ages are invited to Meet Miss Lara from the Stephenson Public Library and crew at Harmony Arboretum and/or Dave’s Falls to see what kind of plants and animals live right here in Marinette County. We will use the free SEEK  app by iNaturalist that is designed for kids and families to use to identify local species, sort of like the musical Shazam app, but for nature. Events are free and open to all ages, but preregistration is needed.

Register for either event or both by calling the Stephenson Public Library at 715.732.7570.

Believe it or not, by the time babies reach their first birthday they will have learned all the sounds needed to speak their native language.

Marinette: The Stanley Toy Story: Fame to Fire

The Stanley Toy Story: Fame to Fire

With Author David Retzlaff

October 15 at 6 PM

Stephenson Public Library, Marinette

 

David Retzlaff, a lifelong resident of Oconto, Wisconsin, has made Oconto’s former Stanley Toy Company building his home since 2005. Since that time, David has done extensive research on the toy company from its start in 1946 to the point where it had become one of the nation’s largest cast metal toy makers until its closure after a devastating 1949 Christmas season fire. David put all of this research into a book, titled The Stanley Toy Story: Fame to Fire.

At this presentation, David will give a brief history of the Stanley Toy Company and talk about his research on the Stanley Toy Company. Books will be available for sale following the presentation.
