Wausaukee Library Archives - Marinette County Consolidated Libraries

Kids Book Club @ Wausaukee on July 16th @ 1PM

 

Join the Kids Book Club on Monday, July 16th @ 1PM to discuss The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey.  This book club is open to 4th grade through 8th grade.  Copies of the book are available at the library.  Please call for more information at 715-856-5995.

After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother–or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.

 


Book Club @ Wausaukee on July 23 @ 4PM

Join the Book Club @ the Wausaukee Library on July 23 @ 4PM to discuss Wonder by R. J. Palacio.  Our adult book club chose this title because of its relevance to all ages.  Copies of the book are available at the library.  Call for more information at 715-856-5995.

 I won’t describe what I look like. Whatever you’re thinking, it’s probably worse.

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—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER begins from Auggie’s point of view but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion and acceptance.

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

Directions for building a pinhole viewer can be found here: https://www.space.com/15737-safely-sun-build-shoebox-pinhole-camera-video.html

Fun: For a solar game, check out “Solar Tricktionary” here: https://spaceplace.nasa.gov/solar-tricktionary/en/

 


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.
