Notice anything different?

Welcome to the library's new website! It's bright and shiny new, and we couldn't be more excited.

And while we've moved things around, we've also tried hard to put them where you'd want to find them. So take some time to explore, and let us know if you have suggestions.

Happy National Library Week!

Upgrade your library card for FREE during April!

What color is your library card ... White? Lime green? Powder blue? Navy? Or is yours invisible because you lost it? 

If your card is anything other than royal blue - loyal Lodi true blue - you've got an old card.

Usually a replacement card costs you $2, but for the rest of the month of April, Lodi Public Library is replacing cards for FREE. Stop in the library with your card (or photo ID and proof of address if you don't have a card) and the librarian can issue a new card. It will only take a few minutes, and you'll get access to great materials!

Book discussion: April

The Bird Sisters by Rebecca Rasmussen

Coming up on Monday, April 28 at 7 pm, the book discussion group will talk about The Bird Sisters by Rebecca Rasmussen.  Set in Spring Green, WI, this touching, fascinating book is about the relationship between two spinster sisters living in their ancestral home. We get their family history through vivid, well-written flashbacks. Place a hold today to get a copy of the book, and plan to join us for a lively discussion. All are welcome - attend once or join in every month. The full schedule of discussion titles is available if you'd like to read ahead.

Online FREE Computer Lessons

We have a new resource for those interested in computer classes: self-guided, learn-at-your-own-pace interactive tutorials for many popular software programs (Word, Excel, Photoshop, and more) are now available with just your library card through our Learning Express Library access. 
Thanks to Wisconsin Library Services for this great resource purchased with a federal Library Services & Technology Act grant!

Barn Quilts Author Talk: Suzi Parron

author Suzi Parron

You've seen barn quilts popping up all around the countryside, but do you know why? Or how it got started? We're happy to bring back our friend Suzi Parron, author of Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement, to tell us all about this fascinating, cross-country phenomenon. Suzi will speak at 6:30 pm on Thursday, May 22. She's travelling while working on her second book and stopping in Lodi because we have such a great quilting community (she visited and spoke at our Lodi Ag Fair in 2012). Books will be available for purchase and signing.Thanks to the Lodi Valley Quilters' Guild for partnering with us on this event!
