It's January in Wisconsin and that means cold and snow. At the library it means it is time once again for our annual Library Open House! Join us at the library on Saturday, January 27 from 10:00am to 1:00 pm for our 12th Annual Open House. This year's open house will feature crafts, information stations, displays, games, free giveaways, door prizes, lunch, and a special performance by Mark Hayward: Yo-yoer, Juggler, & Cool Guy! Borrowing from Mark's call tag this year's open house will showcase how the library's resources and services can help you navigate life's yo-yo like ups and downs and how to juggle all the things you need to balance your life. How cool is that? The open house is the perfect time to come to the library and find out more about the programming, resources, and services that will assist you in a new year of meeting life's challenges, facing changes and enjoying every day just a little bit more!
To kick off 2018 the Book Club will be reading and discussing Anna Quindlen's Miller's Valley. This is a novel about a small town on the verge of a big change. A woman unearths deep secrets about her family and unexpected truths about herself. Miller's Valley is a masterly study of family, memory loss, and ultimately, discovery. It is a story of finding your true identity and a new vision of home. It reminds us that the place where you grew up can disappear, and the people in it too, but all will live on in your heart forever. We will discuss this book two times this month at the library.
*Monday, January 29 at 6:30 pm
*Wednesday, January 31 at 1:30 pm
If you can't make the discussion here in person participate on our blog at kplbookclub.blogspot.com.

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.
