July Photo Club is on Thursday 7/18 at 6:30pm

Reminder, this month we are having Photo Club on the 3rd Thursday instead of the 4th. That means John will have a fun topic for discussion on July 18th. Hope we see you there!

Saturday Storytime and Build and Balance sessions

We realize that not everyone can come to Wednesday Music & Storytime/Build and Balance sessions so we are going to try some Saturday times this summer.

Starting Saturday June 22, 2019 and then every other week through the end of August, there will be a Saturday Music & Storytime at 10 am and Build & Balance at 10:30. Bring the kids to sing songs and hear stories. After that, they can get burn up some energy with the balance equipment or build a masterpiece with various building materials!

We hope to see you there!

Dates for Saturday Storytimes:

June 22, July 6, July 22, August 3, August 17, August 31.


Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult is our July book selection

Stop in and pick up a copy of Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult and then come talk about it with us on Monday July 15th at 7pm. We have lots of copies along with some audiobooks and large print editions.

Here is a brief summary of the book from the folks at Goodreads.com

Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse at a Connecticut hospital with more than twenty years' experience. During her shift, Ruth begins a routine checkup on a newborn, only to be told a few minutes later that she's been reassigned to another patient. The parents are white supremacists and don't want Ruth, who is African American, to touch their child. The hospital complies with their request, but the next day, the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Does she obey orders or does she intervene?

Ruth hesitates before performing CPR and, as a result, is charged with a serious crime. Kennedy McQuarrie, a white public defender, takes her case but gives unexpected advice: Kennedy insists that mentioning race in the courtroom is not a winning strategy. Conflicted by Kennedy's counsel, Ruth tries to keep life as normal as possible for her family—especially her teenage son—as the case becomes a media sensation. As the trial moves forward, Ruth and Kennedy must gain each other's trust, and come to see that what they've been taught their whole lives about others—and themselves—might be wrong.

Last April, members of the Lodi Valley Quilt Guild shared their quilt stories in a series of short videos filmed at the library. Some of these videos are now available on the Recollection Wisconsin website. As more get cataloged, they will be added to the website. Take a few minutes and enjoy hearing the stories as our local fabric artists tell you all about their quilts. Thanks to all of the quilters who filmed a video!
