Our next book discussion title will be The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon. The library will host discussions on this title on Monday, June 25 - join us at NOON or 7 pm.

We brought in books for IMMEDIATE CHECKOUT - stop in to check one out and take it home today!

Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. He relates well to animals but has no understanding of human emotions. He cannot stand to be touched. And he detests the color yellow. This is the amazing, improbable story of Christopher's quest to investigate the suspicious death of a neighborhood dog.

We're selecting discussion books from the PBS series The Great American Read. See the list of 100 titles in The Great American Read at www.pbs.org/the-great-american-read

Seeking: local kids with talent

yellow star with text: lodi bring on your talent


Are you a performer? Do you love to sing or dance or play an instrument or act out a show with your friends? Or does all of that sound really scary … but you’d like to make someone smile by reading aloud with them?

The Lodi Public Library is seeking local kids with talents (or just bravery) to perform for the entertainment of seniors in the area assisted living residences. 

This event is still coming up: Thursday, August 9 – 2 pm at Haven Hills, 215 Dale Drive        

Perform solo, or get together a group of friends. Do a magic trick, tell jokes, read a story ... show us your best, and we'll all applaud!


TEENS - guitar picks and jewelry

What's cooler than guitar picks? Stuff made from guitar picks!

TEENS stop in at 2 pm Friday, June 22 to use the guitar punch to make guitar picks, then make things like keychains or jewelry out of the picks.

All ages are welcome to join in beginning at 4 pm Tuesday, June 26 for a book discussion on rock and folk music icon Bob Dylan.

For this “Rock the Artist” program, we'll be discussing the nonfiction book Who is Bob Dylan? by Jim O'Connor. This fascinating juvenile biography discusses young Robert Zimmerman's early life in Minnesota, his status as a counterculture figure, and his award-winning artistry.


Story Time with Susie at Associated Bank

This month, Susie the Duck hosts storytime starting at 4:30 pm on Thursday, July 5 at Associated Bank, 102 N Main St. 

This joint project brings fun for kids and parents when a member of Lodi & Lake Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce reads a great story while your little one and Susie listen on. Miss Kristine adds her special storytime flair.
