BY D.R. MOON LIBRARY DIRECTOR ELIZABETH MINIATT
It's November, which means it’s time for Food for Fines! For the month of No- vember, donate food to waive your library fines. For each food item brought to the li- brary, you will receive a $1 credit towards a current fine. Food items must be non-per- ishable, unexpired, and in good condition. This program cannot be used for replacement or damage fees. All do- nations benefit Our Savior's Lutheran Church Food Pantry here in Stanley.
The Friends of the Library were busy in October! I’m so grateful for their help to prepare and participate in the Trunk or Treat event held at the end of October. I’m sure you have all heard about the impressive area turnout to Trunk or Treat! We were in great company with other Stanley organizations and we had a lot of fun seeing all the costumes and smiles. The Friends also donated money for our Pumpkin Painting Contest cash prizes and vol unteered time at the library to clean and organize. If you’d like to be a member of our Friends group we'd love to have you join us! The next meeting is November 29
th and we’ll be talking about future projects and programs for the group.
You may have read in the paper last week about our grant award to continue and expand the rural school delivery. We have also re – cently received a grant from The East Asia in Wisconsin Program. The intent of this program is to give public li braries throughout Wisconsin the opportunity to enrich their collections with new titles. Our award will be used to purchase books and materials that will enable Wisconsin residents to deepen their understanding of East Asia. This program is brought to you by the University of Wisconsin-Mad ison’s Center for East Asian Studies, a unit within the Institute for Regional and International Studies. This program is supported with federal funding from the U.S. Department of Education Title VI National Resource Center program, in partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruc- tion's Library Services team and the Cooperative Children's Book Center (CCBC).
Thank you for reading this monthly column where I share library news and updates. The library board meets every sec ond Tuesday of the month at 5PM in the library.

The library is open for you Monday-Friday from 10AM6PM. Come in any time to use the computers, find a book or movie, or use our printer to fax, scan, and copy. We are also still offering curbside pick-up to those who wish to use that option. Please note the library will be closed on November 25th and 26th for the holiday.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
