14th Annual Library Open House:
Saturday, January 25 from 10:30am to 1:00pm is our Open House featuring the Zoozort Program starting at 10:30am. Experience an amazing opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the world's most fascinating exotic animals. Our special guest, Noelle from Zoozort will give you a wildly unique experience to learn about animal behaviors and environments in a fun and exciting way. Noelle has been a USDA licensed animal educator since 1990 and loves sharing her passion for animals with children and adults. Don't miss the fun of this hands-on interactive program for all ages. Following the program, the open house activities will give everyone attending a chance to explore the library through fun and interactive informational stations. It's the perfect time to come to the library and learn about what we have to offer - from books to DVDs, weekly programming, special events and more! There will be crafts, door prizes, free giveaways, and more. Free lunch will be served by the Friends of the Kilbourn Library. Don't miss it- It will be a wildly good time!
For January Book Discussion we will be reading books by New York Times and USA Today bestselling novelist Joshilyn Jackson. Jackson writes page-turners that revolve around women's issues, faith, and justice issues. Jackson serves on the board of Reforming Arts, a nonprofit that runs education-in-prison and reentry programs. Through this organization, Joshilyn has taught creative writing, composition, and literature inside Georgia's maximum security facility for women. She lives in Decatur, Georgia with her husband Scott and their two children. Discussion of her books and writing will be held on Monday, January 27 at 6:30pm and Wednesday, January 29 at 1:30pm. Everyone is welcome!
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.
