Mid-Month Monday Lunch with the Librarians

Mid-Month Monday Lunch with the Librarians

Every Second Monday of the Month, 12:30-1:30 pm in the Community Room

For this totally informal session of book gab, bring your sack lunch or take out and let’s talk books. We’d like to hear about what you’re reading. Thumbs up? Thumbs down? What do you think about it? What do you hope to get your hands on next? We’ll meet the second Monday of each month unless there’s some kind of calendar conflict when we’ll move it to the third Monday. There is a microwave available if needed.

Join Us for a Winter Retreat!

Friday, December 28

1:00 to 5:00 PM

Christmas is over. You got caught up on all the dish washing. You made the returns and exchanges. Now it’s time for some low key relaxation. We’ll have a stop by or hang out all day event on Friday without pressure or expectations. We’ll have table dedicated to anyone who would like to just sit and visit and work on a stitching project or perhaps color. We’ll have a table with a jigsaw puzzle. Maybe two, one for the big people and one for the smaller folk. We’ll have a table with book art folding supplies. We’ll have a table with simple journals that you can take as is or add a few embellishments. We might have some mellow munchies. Nothing fancy. Nothing extravagant. Just a pleasant afternoon’s worth of possibilities. Hope you’ll come by.
For all ages!

Star Party with Madison Library District’s New Telescope

– Or maybe Moon Party is a more appropriate term as the moon will be full and glowing obscurely those other lesser night lights. Come take a peak through a telescope at the craters and plains of our closest celestial neighbor. Thanks to the Madison Library Foundation for providing funds that allowed us to purchase this telescope!

If you have a telescope, please bring it to share. The more the merrier is decidedly the rule for any star party!

All activities will meet in the community room.
