Antiques Event Returns

Antique Appraisal Event September 21


Antique expert Mark Moran will be back at the library for his third visit on Sunday, September 21, noon - 3pm.  Registration for this event is required if you would like to have an item appraised. (One item per person limit)  Spectators do not need to register.  The show is fun to watch, and he does a great job of getting through lots of items in an entertaining way.  We had a full house last year for the entire three hours, even with a Packer game as competition!  To sign up to bring in an item or for more information about Mr. Moran's program, stop by the library.

Reedsburg Public Library on the Road


Reedsburg Public Library’s Outreach to Loganville

Emmie Phillippi, the Reedsburg Public Library’s Outreach Librarian, has been providing Summer Library Program Services to Loganville for since 2008.  This outreach includes programs, reading incentives, performers and materials available for check out.  The Village Hall in Loganville is transformed into a mini library on Wednesday mornings at 10am for Loganville Book Bunch, a programing time for families and some Wednesday afternoons at 1pm for Teen Time which is for students going into 5th grade and higher.
There is no need to register, but a library card is required for materials to be checked out.  New library cards can be issued with a proof of I.D. and address.

 Upcoming Book Bunch programs include Police Science, presenter Mary Tooley and other science related fun on July 16, 23, 30, August 6 and 13.  Teen Time will be held on July 16 and August 6.
For more information about all the Summer Library Program events visit the Reedsburg Public Library’s website at reedsburglibrary.org or call 768-READ(7323).



Summer Reading


What do you do on summer Saturdays?  Go to the beach?  Check out some yard sales? Work on the lawn?  We want to remind you that the Library is open on Saturdays all summer long. So add “Stop by the Library” to your list of good things to do on a summer Saturday!  Library hours are Monday through Thursday 8:30 a.m. - 8:00 p.m., Fridays 8:30a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and Saturdays 9:00 a.m. to 1:00p.m. Select some books for vacation reading, choose a great film for weekend viewing, pick up audio books for those long trips in the car, or use our computers to catch up on your email and web browsing.  Books, films, technology and help---it’s all @ your library!

 

Are you going on a long vacation this summer? Don’t forget to suspend your library holds. Suspending your holds allows you to keep your place on the waiting list, but items won’t be sent until you’re ready for them. Log in to your account in LINKcat or ask the staff to suspend your holds for you. When you return, remember to activate them.
