Solar Eclipse Events: ALL BRANCHES

Free Glasses: We are so happy to share the news that our libraries will have free solar eclipse safety glasses to pass out!  These will be available the DAY OF THE ECLIPSE.  We are not distributing them early as we need to be sure to have enough on hand at our events.   We look forward to seeing everyone on August 21st!  Please check with your branch library to see what time their event will begin.

 

 

Time: The eclipse lasts for several hours, so we understand that you may want to finish your observation off site.  That works!  You will be able to take your glasses with you that day.  The eclipse will begin at approximately 11:54 a.m. and end at 2:36 p.m.

Safety: For your safety, it is important to use undamagedunscratched safety glasses.  Even a small scratch can result in eye damage.

Options for other safe observation can be found here: https://www.space.com/35555-total-solar-eclipse-safety-tips.html

MARINETTE: Summer Reading Club 2017 Celebration!

 

Summer Reading Club Finale and Story Time

Pete the Cat

    Story Time: Join us at the Stephenson Public Library in Marinette on Friday, August 11th at 10:00 a.m. for our Pete the Cat Story Time and SRC Celebration! This is part of the Kid’s Day in Marinette events.  We will read stories, move, grove, and meet Pete!  Participants are welcome to have their photo taken with Pete as well.

    Donations: We will also be presenting the Animal Shelter, St. Vincent dePaul food pantry, and the Fairy Godmother Project with their checks.  The money was earned by participants in the “Build a Better World” Summer Reading Club courtesy of a donation by our Friends of the Library group. We hope that this helps everyone feel that they can make a difference right here in our community.

If you would like to make an additional donation to any of these groups, you can bring them in on that day.  Attached are a list of suggestions provided by the groups: SVdP list.docx MAS shelter list Project Give Fairy Godmother List

 

        More Pete coming soon…. Schools also had the chance to earn a visit from Pete the Cat for their elementary school by earning the most points for their team by reading, creating, learning, and doing with the Summer Reading Club.

Wausaukee Book Club on June 26

The Wausaukee Book Club will discuss Still Life on Monday, June 26th at 4PM.  This is Louise Penny’s first book in her Inspector Gamache series.

Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Surêté du Québec and his team of investigators are called in to the scene of a suspicious death in a rural village south of Montreal. Jane Neal, a local fixture in the tiny hamlet of Three Pines, just north of the U.S. border, has been found dead in the woods. The locals are certain it’s a tragic hunting accident and nothing more.   However,  Gamache smells something foul in these remote woods. He is certain that Jane Neal died at the hands of someone much more sinister than a careless bowhunter.
Still Life introduces not only an engaging series hero in Inspector Gamache.   He commands his forces with integrity and quiet courage.

Winner of the New Blood Dagger, Arthur Ellis, Barry, Anthony, and Dilys awards, Louise Penny is known for her sophisticated character development and intricate descriptions.  Come to the library on Monday, June 26th.  Copies of the book are available at the library.

Summer Book Club @ Wausaukee

Wonder by R. J. Palaciio

Come to the Wausaukee Library on June 21 at 4PM to discuss Wonder by R. J. Palacio.  This heartbreaking but positive book has made the New York Times bestseller list and is heralded as one of kids’ best books.  This is the book that inspired the Choose Kind movement.

August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid.  However, his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER begins from Auggie’s point of view.   Soon the point of view switches to his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.

Pick up a copy of the book at the Wausaukee Library and return on Wednesday, June 21st at 4PM to share your review of this extraordinary book.
