Coloring, Coffee & Conversation: Teens and adults are welcome to join us on Tuesday, May 17 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. for coloring! Coloring pages, colored pencils and markers will be provided, as well as snacks, water and coffee. Why coloring? Psychiatrists have prescribed coloring to patients for 100 years. Coloring reduces stress and anxiety, trains your brain to focus and helps fine motor skills and vision. It also will give you a chance to be social and just be you! This is a free drop-in event and will take place in the library basement which is only accessible by stairs.

Medicare Seminar: Join Kathleen Leitner of Physicians Mutual as she presents "Transition Made Simple - Understanding Medicare" on Thursday, May 19 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. This informative and educational session is designed for people of all ages and in all stages of life. Kathleen will offer educational information and materials on Medicare. She will explain how to enroll in Medicare, what Medicare does and does not cover, how you can control your out-of-pocket costs and much more. She can advise you on what steps to take to make your next stage of life all you've dreamed of.

The seminar will be held in the lower level of the library which is accessible only by stairs. Family and friends are welcome, refreshments will be provided.

Book Club--  "The Railway Man" by Eric Lomax will be discussed on Tuesday, May 31 at 6:30 p.m. at the Lomira QuadGraphics Community Library.  The meeting place will now alternate monthly between our library and the Lomira QuadGraphics Community Library.  Please stop by or contact our library at 583-4325 for a copy of the book. New members are always welcome!!          

Paws to R.E.A.D. Program:  Children are invited to read with dogs at the library on Tuesday, May 10 from 5:45-7:00 p.m. We will have trained dogs here along with their handlers who are eager to listen to children read. Please stop by or call the library to reserve your spot!

The Reading Education Assistance Dog (R.E.A.D.) Program for children is made possible through Healing Paws, Inc located in Fond du Lac. It is a non-profit organization committed to enriching the lives of children and adults in special circumstances, through safe therapeutic interaction with dogs and cats. Studies have shown that reading to therapy animals helps children relax, increases their interest in reading, and improves their reading skills.

Based upon participation, the program will tentatively continue to be held the second Tuesday of each month (September-May) from 5:30-7:00 p.m. This program is free and open to the public!
