September is Library Card Month

“Toy Story 4” Characters are Honorary Chairs for Library Card Sign-up Month 2019!

September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide join together to remind parents, caregivers and students that signing up for a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning.

Disney and Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” characters Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Bo Peep and friends are joining ALA on an adventure to promote the value of a library card. They’ll be reminding the public that signing up for a library card opens a world of infinite possibilities: libraries offer resources and services that help people pursue their passions and give students the tools to succeed in school and beyond.

In “Toy Story 4,” Woody has always felt confident about his place in the world and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that’s Andy or Bonnie. But when Bonnie adds a reluctant new toy called “Forky” to her room, a road trip adventure alongside old and new friends will show Woody how big the world can be for a toy.

History’s Bookmark Night, Tuesday, September 24th, 6PM

The book STALAG WISCONSIN: Inside WW II prisoner-of-war camps by Betty Cowley is a comprehensive look inside Wisconsin’s 38 branch camps that held 20,000 Nazi and Japanese prisoners of war during World War II. Many of these prisoners blended with the local community, drinking at taverns and even dating local girls. Some returned and settled in Wisconsin after their release. Their familiarity with local residents caused resentment by returning soliders who had battled them in Europe and Asia.

Each month a subject will be discussed through a selected reading list. Join us for an informative evening exploring many different historical events, while sharing opinions, information and anecdotes with others.
