Baseball Essay Reminder

There is still time to enter the 6th Annual Bill Klinger Baseball Essay Contest. In honor of Bill Klinger, who passed away in 2011, his family raises money each year to provide opportunities for young baseball fans to attend a Brewers game. Students in grades 2 through 6 are encouraged to write a short essay about their favorite baseball player or baseball memory. Two lucky winners will be chosen and they will each receive two tickets to a Brewer game, a gas card, and spending money! Essay forms can be picked up at the library or on the bookmobile. The deadline for submitting these essays is coming up fast and is on the last day of National Library Week, Saturday, April 14.

April Book Club

For the month of April, the Kilbourn Public Library Book Club will be reading Idaho by Emily Ruskovich. This book follows the story of Ann and Wade, who are married and work the rough landscape of northern Idaho. Wade is slowly losing his memory and Ann wants to peice together the tragic events that happened to his previous wife Jenny and their two daughters June and May.

The Kilbourn Public Library Book Club will be discussing this book twice in April: Wednesday, April 25 at 1:30pm and Monday, April 30 at 6:30 pm. If you are unable to join us for discussion, please don't miss the online conversation at All are welcome!

Donate to the Library

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.


Join us every Tuesday afternoon for card playing fun! From 1:00 - 3:30 p.m. the tables will be open for all interested Euchre enthusiasts. Don't know how to play - come on in, we will teach you. Euchre afternoons are part of our ongoing adult programming series. These programs are sponsored by our Friends group.
