Hello Stanley community and welcome back to our monthly column where I share what is happening at the library. The library board meets every second Tuesday of the month at 5PM in the library. If you are unable to make it to the meeting, you can find the report I share of library news and updates with the board each month here.
There are quite a few programs happening at the library this month! You may have seen in the paper last week that we are hosting local author Jackie McManus today September 16th at 5PM. Learn about Jackie’s time teaching in an Alaskan village and check out her new book, Related to Loon.
Speaking of local authors, we are also starting a Creative Writing Guild for local aspiring authors. There will be different speakers and presentations throughout the year and the group will provide the chance to connect with fellow writers. The first meeting is September 21st, at 2PM.
Our book club held an initial meeting last week and decided to meet every first Thursday of the month at 2PM. The first meeting will be October 7th, and the book chosen is The Four Winds, by Kristin Hannah. Get your copy from the library today.
Girls Who Code Clubs are back! With school starting up again, our 3rd-5th grade club and our 6-12th grade club have their first meetings on the last Tuesday of this month, September 28th. Registration is required, please contact library staff for more details. We are also hosting a family outdoor movie night, this Saturday, September 18th at 7:30PM, weather permitting. Weil be showing Raya and the Last Dragon, please bring your own snacks and blankets.
Finally, we have our crafting club beginning again this month on September 29th. We’ll meet on the last Wednesday of every month at 2:30PM. Bring your current project to craft and chat with fellow makers! You can always check out our website for more detailed program information or stop by the library and pick up a monthly calendar.
The library is excited to share we have been awarded American Recovery Plan Act 2021 funds to conduct English and Spanish health and safety outreach to rural and migrant worker communities in our area. The $8000 grant is funded in part by Wisconsin Humanities, with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Wisconsin Humanities strengthens the roots of community life through educational and cultural programs that inspire civic participation and individual imagination. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this project do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
The library is open for you! Come visit us anytime from 10AM-6PM, Monday through Friday, 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 and home delivery for at-risk patrons. Stay safe and we hope to see you at the library soon.
