LIBBY & OVERDRIVE November BIG LIBRARY READ

*Co-authors, Gilly Segal (left) and Kimberly Jones (right)

The Big Library Read began on November 4 and is running through November 18, 2019. During the Big Library Read, the eBook and eAudio is available to all library customers to download for free, with no need to be on a wait-list. I'm Not Dying with You Tonight can be read or listened to on major computers and devices. Like all of our eBooks and eAudios, it will automatically expire at the end of the lending period, so there will not be any late fees. You can use LIBBY or OVERDRIVE.

I (Elizabeth) read it over the weekend and it was excellent. This is geared to a young adult audience but, obviously, adults can read it as well. There are two authors to this debut novel. In the story, an unlikely friendship ensues when two young women are thrown together during a race riot. They protect each other and learn new perspectives as they save each other’s lives.

All welcome to this opportunity!

Story Times @ Your Library

Our community welcomed Jerry Apps on October 24, 2019!

We had a memorable fun-filled afternoon on October 24, 2019. Jerry Apps, Wisconsin author and television personality, is a fabulous storyteller. His talk concentrated on his work entitled RURAL WIT & WISDOM. Very wonderful!

The international results for the Manhattan Short Film Festival

Sylvia won at the Muehl Public Library garnering 19 votes! So again we matched the International winner, wow! We did not name the actor winner, however, this year! Our location tied votes for Fiona (Tipped) and A. Leslie (The End of the World)...the winner was Sir John Standing (A Family Affair). Congrats to all the finalists!!! And the top three films...

 

Planetarium Field Trip was a hit!

Thanks to our Friends Treasurer, Deanna DeBruin. When we were in the brainstorming stages of A UNIVERSE OF STORIES she suggested that our incentive for reading should be a field trip to the Barlow. Voila! 55 patrons attended the field trip on the evening of Tuesday, August 20, 2019. (7 not pictured). Many more patrons had earned the trip but were unable to participate due to scheduling conflicts.

Thank you Barlow Planetarium and to the patrons who read all summer to earn the trip there! Thank you to our guide, Ty. I knew we were in good hands when he let me know that he is married to Kathleen, a children's librarian at the Appleton Public Library. Small world and all that!

Everyone keep looking up to the stars and expanding your universe!

 

First Place!

The BurgerFest parade theme for 2019 was “rebirth of the burger”. For the parade float we also decided to include in our design references to our plans for expanding (or rebirthing!) the library. So one panel is about the new life of BurgerFest and one panel is about the new life of the library. The VBS fifth graders assisted us on Wednesday, August 7 under the leadership of John Steltz and Summer Peters. Helpers on Saturday morning, August 10, included Lori, Dan, Ronnie and Jeff and the float riders. (The float riders wore scrubs to go with the idea of rebirthing!) We had pink balloons and a pink stork for the rebirth of the library panel. We had blue balloons and a blue stork for the rebirth of the burger panel. We are tickled to announce that we placed 1st! It is a ton of work, especially with very last minute brainstorming during the busy summer reading season. Validation and recognition makes it so much sweeter. Thank you!
