Storytime to begin @ Wausaukee on Jan. 17th

We are coming back from our short vacation and will be starting up a new session of Storytime!  Our storytime is available for all ages.  We read some, we sing some, we dance a little or play some instruments, we read some more, we make a craft, and we always have a snack!  Please join us each Wednesday morning @ 10:30AM for an hour of fun.  Call the library for more information at 715-856-5995.  See you on Jan. 17th!


Book club to meet on Monday, Jan. 29th

Ava’s twenty-five-year marriage has fallen apart, and her two grown children are pursuing their own lives outside of the country. Ava joins a book group, not only for her love of reading but also out of sheer desperation for companionship. The group’s goal throughout the year is for each member to present the book that matters most to them. Ava rediscovers a mysterious book from her childhood―one that helped her through the traumas of the untimely deaths of her sister and mother. Alternating with Ava’s story is that of her troubled daughter Maggie, who, living in Paris, descends into a destructive relationship with an older man. Ava’s mission to find that book and its enigmatic author takes her on a quest that unravels the secrets of her past and offers her and Maggie the chance to remake their lives.

Join us on Monday, Jan. 29th @ 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 Jan. 15th

Pax and Peter have been inseparable ever since Peter rescued him as a kit. But one day, the unimaginable happens: Peter’s dad enlists in the military and makes him return the fox to the wild.

At his grandfather’s house, three hundred miles away from home, Peter knows he isn’t where he should be—with Pax. He strikes out on his own despite the encroaching war, spurred by love, loyalty, and grief, to be reunited with his fox.

On Monday, Jan. 15th @ 3:45PM we will be discussing this wonderful book.  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, Jan. 15th!!
