Reedsburg Public Library’s Outreach to LoganvilleEmmie 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.

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.
Baseball has always been more than just a game. A part of the fabric of American culture and tradition rich in legends, folklore and history, baseball is a never-ending story where every game is a new nine-inning chapter of superstar players that stand out above the rest. They are the ones that bring the fans out to the ballpark and baseball is the game that brings them all together. Major League Baseball’s 2014 All-Star Game will be held on Tuesday, July 15th in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The 85th game will be the first time the Midsummer Classic has taken place at Target Field. It’s the Twins’ sixth ballpark since their start as the Washington Senators. Their first stadium in Minnesota is now the site of Mall of America. We have the book “The Twins at the Met” by Bob Showers, which is packed with fond recollections and candid comments from those who were there. Also in our collection is “Target Field: The New Home of the Minnesota Twins.” This 2010 book by Steve Berg explores with first-hand insight the long journey to getting a new ballpark. Do you remember it was twelve years ago that the All Star game was held in Milwaukee’s beautiful Miller Park? The Brewers were represented by Richie Sexson and Jose Hernandez. The game controversially ended in a 7-7 tie when both teams ran out of players.
Local author Brea Behn will be at the library on Thursday, July 10th at 7 PM to discuss and read from her new book, “Wolves in the Woods.” The story features Braelin, a young woman in the year 2056 whose life is soon to be changed forever by a virus known as C47- a virus that wipes out much of the world, including her parents and her twin. Now alone, Braelin is forced to learn to take care of herself. By fate and good luck she stumbles across a sanctuary hidden deep in the woods of Wisconsin. Here she learns the hardest lessons of survival yet. Along the way, she meets Aravon and Timber, both of whom develop an infatuation for Braelin. Filled with suspense, passion and excitement, “Wolves in the Woods” keeps Braelin fighting for her life and for her love until the very end. Autographed copies of the book will be available for sale after the program. Copies will also be available soon for check out from the library. Help us give Brea a warm welcome by attending this free program.
Bubble Wonders at the Reedsburg Public LibraryBubble Wonders’ presenter is author, speaker and bubble artist, Geoff Akins. He uses ordinary soap bubbles to inspire others to follow their dreams. Geoff is fun and educational and will captivate children and adults alike. Bubble Wonders is full of amazing bubble tricks including the bubble caterpillar, bubble volcano, the dancing bubble, a bubble merry-go-round and much more. His theme is “Anything is Possible” and by the end of the performance we successfully figure out a way to make a square bubble.
