We will be celebrating the end of summer at the library on Saturday, August 18 starting at 10:00am. Don't miss our sing-a-long with Guitar George in addition to prizes, games, food and fun. This is your last chance to bring in your reading logs to be entered in the Grand Prize Drawing. The drawing for summer reading prizes will begin at 10:30am. All reading logs and drawing prize slips must be in by 10:00am to be eligible for a drawing prize. End your summer right by coming in to celebrate at the library. Attendance is not necessary to win a drawing prize but prizes must be picked up at the library. Each participant is eligible to win only one grand prize.

For our last (but certainly not least) Summer Book Discussion Event we will be reading and discussing Happily Ever After Everyone Else: Julie's Story. Local Author Mary Leary Becker will be leading the discussion via Skype on this first book in the "She Said, He Said" series. The book takes a humorous but honest look at the life of a couple in the sandwich generation. They are dealing with conflict and commitments, not to mention five children, one son-in-law, two grandchildren, one future daughter-in-law and one live-in elderly parent. What follows is a humorous road trip involving friends, family, romance, and people from the past. Book discussions will be taking place on Monday, August 27 at 6:30pm and Wednesday, August 29 at 1:30pm. If you are unable to attend, please use our online blog at kplbookclub.blogspot.com to join in on the conversation.
Come and experience the latest trend in relaxation, adult coloring! Studies show coloring can have a calming effect on the adult mind and helps promote overall wellness. Coloring pages from books designed especially for adults as well as colored pencils and crayons will be provided. Get together with others and color. Every Friday from 10:00 a.m.-Noon.
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.
