May will feature our regular school year offerings of Preschool Story Time, Itsy Bitsy Story Time, Lego night,    Genealogy, and Wednesday Afternoon Book Club.

 

 

 

This summer we will be offering some favorites and some new options for all ages. Our theme is “Libraries Rock” and we will start off with a “Summer Blast Off” Party where you can register and have some fun (hopefully the weather will cooperate). We will even have an option for kids attending the Marinette City Supervised Playgrounds.  Check the  event listings in the newspaper and on Facebook throughout the summer for themes and details.

All programs/events are free and open to the public.

 

 

 


Manure & Water Quality in Marinette County discussion @ Wausaukee on April 27 @ 10AM 4PM

PLEASE NOTE DATE AND TIME CHANGE!

Manure is well known as one of nature’s most perfect fertilizers and is an essential component of all livestock farms. However, there are potential drawbacks to using manure in certain situations.  Scott Reuss, UW-Extension Horticulture and Agriculture Agent for Marinette and Oconto counties, will present a discussion about this very topic at the Wausaukee Public Library on Friday, April 27th @ 10AM.  This event is free and no registration is necessary.  Information and handouts will available to all attendees.  For more information call Scott @ 715-732-7510 or the library @ 715-856-5995.

In 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, and is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel’s doors. Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him entry into a much larger world of emotional discovery.n 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, and is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin.

Join us on Monday, April 23rd  @ 4PM to discuss this interesting novel.  If you need a copy of the book, please call the library @ 715-856-5995.


4th-6th Grade Book Club continues on April 9th @ 3:45PM

Eleven-year-old Perry was born and raised by his mom at the Blue River Co-ed Correctional Facility in tiny Surprise, Nebraska. His mom is a resident on Cell Block C, and so far Warden Daugherty has made it possible for them to be together. That is, until a new district attorney discovers the truth—and Perry is removed from the facility and forced into a foster home.

When Perry moves to the “outside” world, he feels trapped. Desperate to be reunited with his mom, Perry goes on a quest for answers about her past crime. As he gets closer to the truth, he will discover that love makes people resilient no matter where they come from . . . but can he find a way to tell everyone what home truly means?

On Monday, April 9th @ 3:45PM we will be discussing All Rise for the Honorable Perry T. Cook by Leslie Connor.  Of course, we also will have something fun to do and a snack to eat.  Please make sure to have your bus pass set up so the bus can drop you off at the library on that day.  If you need a book, we have some at the library.  See you on Monday, April 9th!!
