We are very excited to announce the book club selection for the month of September! We will be discussing our very own Michael Dodd's newest book Except for His Wings. Most of you remember Michael as an employee and volunteer here at the library but he is also an author and we are sure you are going to enjoy this book. His novel is about Corny Shane, who is a recovering alcoholic trying to rebuild his shattered life in the Texas Hill Country. The story begins when Corny's eleven-year-old daughter comes home with a story about a boy with wings who appeared at the town park. Except for His Wings is the story of the turmoil his appearance creates in their small town. It is a story of uncertainty and confusion, of old wounds and new fears, of sorrow and of hope. We will be welcoming Michael Dodd back to the library to lead the discussion during both sessions. The book wil be discussed at the library on Monday, September 25 at 6:30 p.m. and Wednesday, September 27 at 1:30 p.m. Books are available for checkout at the library and on the bookmobile.

The Kilbourn Public Library accepts and appreciates donations of used books, CDs, videos, magazines or DVDs. If you are cleaning out your closets or garage please think of donating your used items to the library. The Friends of the Library turn your donations into money for the library at their book sales. Items may be dropped off at the library. If you have a large donation we can send the bookmobile out to pick it up. Your donation is tax deductible.
We are also on the lookout for Wisconsin Dells High School Yearbooks. Don’t throw those old yearbooks away - donate them to the library for our local reference shelf.
AND - if you have Legos that you are wanting out of your space - put them in ours. We are always looking for more to add to our collection.
