Party on the Patio!
The book discussion this month will be a party. The title for July's book discussion is Circling the Sun by Paula McLain. Set against the majestic ladscape of early twentieth-century Africa, McLain's powerful tale reveals the extraordinary adventures of a woman before her time, the exhilaration of freedom and its cost, and the tenacity of the human spirit. Both discussions will be taking place outside on our fantastic patio. We will be serving African food and sunny weather with a side of interesting conversation. This is a book discussion you definitely will not want to miss. We will close out the Summer Book Discussion Events with local author Mary Leary Becker's Happily Ever After Everyone Else: Julie's Story. If you are unable to attend the book discussion events in person, visit our book club 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.
