The Kilbourn Public Library is once again partnering with the Wisconsin Dells Literacy Council to hold a children's book drive. Here at the library we know that a book in a child's hands can be something akin to magic: books can take them anywhere, teach them new things, and become their most dependable friends. Help us spread the magic this year by donating new or gently used children's books to be distributed to children in our community. The Wisconsin Dells food pantry will be assisting us in getting the books to local families. Share the magic of reading and the holidays and give the Gift of Reading. Books will be collected here at the library through Wednesday, December 18.
LINKcat, the online library catalog will be offline for a scheduled software update beginning at 9pm on Friday, December 6 and ending on Tuesday, December 10. During this period, no items are due and no fines will be incurred. Please visit us at the library to pick up holds and to check out and return items. With the new updates to the system, you will be required to have a library card with you for all transactions during the update and going forward. Overdrive will be available during the update process. Once the update is complete, you will be able to use LINKcat to access the same services as before with minimal optimizing changes. For more information please call or stop in the library.
The Kilbourn Public Library Book Club is reading a selection of holiday books for the December get-together. Each person is choosing any holiday book they would like to read and we will have a short discussion on the books. We will also be watching the movie Love Actually. This movie is a delightful and modern Christmas classic. If you have never joined us for book club, this month would be a perfect time to come meet new people and enjoy book discussion, treats, a hot chocolate bar, and a movie. Stop by the library or bookmobile and pick up a holiday book to read. Or just come and watch the movie with us. 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.
