Make it a Brainy Day
With a grant from the Dementia Concerns Coalition of Dodge County, the library is pleased to offer The Brainy Day Activity Program for checkout. The program includes over 67 individual and group activities created to meet the cognitive, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of individuals with memory loss. Each bag contains an activity and instructions for engaging a person experiencing dementia in fun, unique activities.
?Food for Fines
It’s time for giving and forgiving. The annual Food for Fines program is right around the corner. From Black Friday through to the New Year, patrons may choose to pay off their fines with non-perishable items. Each item donated is worth $1 in fines forgiven. Even if you don’t have any fines, we’ll gladly accept your donation, and as a surprise gift pay it forward to the next patron who does. All collections will be shared with our local food pantries in support of our community. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
Book Groups - In-Person or Online
No matter your preference of reading format, we have an outlet where you can share your thoughts and insights with other readers.
For those preferring the personal touch, join us on Thursday, November 21st, at 6:30 PM in the small meeting room. We’ll gather to discuss Jennifer Ryan’s The Chilbury Ladies’ Choir. Set in WWII England, the ladies of the choir “carry on singing.” We’re introduced to the ensemble through letters and diary entries, getting to know their home-front struggles. There are plenty of copies available and still time to read.
It’s also time for the next Big Library Read. Join millions of readers worldwide in the world’s largest digital book club. Brought to you by Rakuten OverDrive, I’m Not Dying with You Tonight by Gilly Seagal and Kimberly Jones is available with no holds or waiting. Over the course of one night, two girls with two very different backgrounds must rely on each other to get through the violent race riot that has enveloped their city. Lena has her killer style, her awesome boyfriend, and a plan. She knows she’s going to make it big. Campbell, on the other hand, is just trying to keep her head down and get through the year at her new school. Check out your copy and join the discussion at Wisconsin’s Digital Library: wplc.overdrive.com.
Want to learn how to use your tablet, phone, or laptop with all of our digital offerings? Stop by the library Tuesday afternoon, November 19, and we’ll help get you set up.
