Come join us and celebrate Spring Saturday, April 29th! We will be having a May Day celebration. The 5th Saturday of the month means fun for the whole family. Join us from 10:00 a.m. to Noon for crafts, games, activities, snacks and an all around family fun day!
In April the Book Club will be reading Jesse Burton's The Miniaturist. Burton's story is set in seventheenth century Amsterdam and follows the path of Nella Oortman who moves to the city with her husband, Johannes Brandt, who is a wealthy merchant. But Nella's world changes when Johannes presents her with an extraordinary wedding gift: a cabinet-sized replica of their home. To furnish her gift, Nella engages the services of a miniaturist--an elusive and enigmatic artist whose tiny creations mirror their real-life counterparts in eerie and unexpected ways. Join us in April in reading and discussing this haunting and magical page turner. We will meet at the library for conversation and snacks on two occasions in April:
*Monday, April 24 at 6:30 pm
*Wednesday, April 26 at 1:30 pm
If you cannot make it in person, visit our blog at www.kplbookclub.blogspot.com. Join the discussion by adding a post to the blog.

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.
