Remember our upcoming book discussion on Monday February 24th at 7 pm. We will be talking about the book, Paperboy by Vince Vawter.

We still have copies of the book available to borrow so come grab one and join the discussion.

Here's a brief description from Goodreads.com

"An 11-year-old boy living in Memphis in 1959 throws the meanest fastball in town, but talking is a whole different ball game. He can barely say a word without stuttering, not even his own name. So when he takes over his best friend's paper route for the month of July, he knows he'll be forced to communicate with the different customers, including a housewife who drinks too much and a retired merchant marine who seems to know just about everything.

The paper route poses challenges, but it's a run-in with the neighborhood junkman, a bully and thief, that stirs up real trouble--and puts the boy's life, as well as that of his family's devoted housekeeper, in danger."

2020 Census events at Lodi Public Library

In just a few months the U.S. Census will officially begin, and the City of Lodi and the Lodi Public Library will be hosting two events to learn more about the process and how you can encourage participation. You’re invited to join Cheryl Frye, a 2020 Census Partnership Specialist, on Tuesday, February 25, 2:00 pm, and Thursday, March 5, 6:30 pm, at the Lodi Public Library.

Since 1790, the Census has happened every 10 years as mandated by the U.S. Constitution. The population figures generated are used for everything from reapportioning congressional seats, redistricting, and distributing billions of dollars to local communities. The 2020 data will be used for (just to list a few): planning for medical care and nursing home facilities; designing public safety strategies; drawing school district boundaries; making business decisions; planning urban and land use; and distributing funding for government programs. The Census data is critical for all of us, and we want everyone in the Lodi community to be counted.

Please mark your calendars and plan to attend on one of these programs. Your participation in, and support of the 2020 Census is a great investment in our community!

Local Authors at the Lodi Library

We are happy to announce a new partnership with the Lodi Valley Book Club, a discussion group dedicated to Wisconsin and local authors!

We hope to welcome in local authors for readings and book events at the library, so please get in touch with us if you are a local author or if you know someone who is interested. You can also get in touch with Jessica Clark, who is the leader of the Lodi Valley Book Club.

 

 

Room Reservation Policies have changed

The Library Board has updated the library's policies regarding use of the two meeting rooms. Previously, users had to be official non-profits, but we now encourage non-library affiliated groups of all kinds to use the space. Private, professional, for-profit, non-profit, all in the community (and beyond) are welcome.

The Conference Room works well as a study and meeting space for smaller groups, while the Program Room is ideal for larger events. Please consult the policies and reservation forms to answer questions or contact us and we'll be happy to help you.
