We've begun our annual Library Giving Tree program! Stop in the library to browse a cart of pre-selected items for our library collection; complete the attached form and donate the indicated amount - we'll add a custom bookplate, and you'll get the honor of first checkout. We'll also add a thank you ornament to our tree to commemorate your donation.
(This program will run until January 10, with new materials added each week.)
Join us for a fun kids movie beginning at 1 pm on Friday, December 27th. We legally can't tell you what movie we're showing, but you might find a minion or two!

Author talk: Nancy Zieman
We're so, so excited to have sewist Nancy Zieman coming to our library on Thursday, February 6 at 6:30 pm. You know her from "Sewing with Nancy" on PBS, but now get to know Nancy and learn her story as her autobiography "Seams Unlikely" is released. Come early to snag a seat - we're hoping for a crowd for this one! Books will be available for purchase and signing. Thanks to the Lodi Valley Quilters' Guild for partnering with us on this event!
Barn Quilts Author Talk: 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!
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!
How Valuable Is The Library In Your Life?
Take a minute with the value calculator to see just how much the library services you're using are worth. What would you have to pay, if the library didn't exist?
Once you've had the chance to plug in your numbers and calculate your personal library use, we encourage you to contact your government representatives and remind them how important libraries are to our community. Or, tell your story at Libraries for Real Life.
Our SCLS libraries are gathering unique tales about how libraries change lives. Have a story to tell? Tell it here.
