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.
We had a wonderful time at the library with Rita the T-rex! Rita danced and played with us. Miss Lara from Marinette brought her along and we had a great time with all the books Miss Lara read and the activities we did. Thanks, Miss Lara and Rita, for a great time!
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.
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!!

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 undamaged, unscratched safety glasses. Even a small scratch can result in eye damage.
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.
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.
