National Library Week Contests: National Library Week is April 13-19. For the whole month of April, children may pick up a Culver's Drawing Contest sheet and return it when finished for a coupon for a free scoop of frozen custard. Drawings will be held at the end of April for coupons for free kid's meals at Culver's. ALSO, during the dates of April 10-17, patrons who check out 5 or more items at one time may enter their name in a drawing for a chance to win one of three different gift packages! We will be closed Friday, April 18 and Saturday, April 19 due to Easter, so we chose April 10-17. Gift baskets include Movie Night, Pizza Party and Ice Cream Sundae. Entries will be limited to one per day per library card holder. Drawings will take place Monday, April 21. There will also be a candy guessing game for all patrons to enter this week.

Book Club -- Jamie Ford's "Songs of Willow Frost" will be discussed on Thursday, April 24 at 6:00 pm. New members are always welcome!!! Please contact the library for a copy or order one for yourself by using our online catalog.             

Preschool Story Time:  The theme will be "Let's Learn About Animals" for our Winter/Spring Session. We have added a story time, so there will be a total of seven in stead of our usual six! Plan to attend for a lot of fun with stories, crafts, games, songs and more! Preschool story time will be approximately 45 minutes in length and will be held every other Tuesday morning in the library's basement.

*Please note a date change! The previously scheduled April 8 Story Time will now be held April 15 instead so that staff can attend a Programming Workshop that morning!

*February 4 - "Polar Bears"   *February 11 - "Cats"   *February 25 - "Penguins"   *March 11 - "Lions"   *March 25 - "Lamb"   *April 15 - "Skunks"  *April 22 - "Pigs"

*If you have a stuffed animal that matches the animal we will be talking about, bring it along!!

Paws to R.E.A.D. Program:  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.

Our programs have been a huge success, so we will continue offering them. The next one will be on Tuesday, May 13 from 5:30-7:00 pm. Handlers and their dogs will work with individual children on a one-on-one basis for about fifteen minutes each. Children may choose library books to read or bring a book from home to read to the dog. PLEASE CALL OR STOP IN TO REGISTER!

Based upon participation, the program will tentatively continue to be held the second Tuesday of each month at the same time. This program is free and open to the public!
