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!

The Time Machine, Friday May 17th 2:30pm Lodi High School Library

cover of the book the time machine by HG Wells

We are joining the high school book club on May 17th at 2:30pm to read HG Wells' The Time Machine, meeting in the High School Library/Media Center. You will need to stop in at the office and get a visitor pass before going to the library.

We have copies available for immediate check-out here at the Lodi Public Library. Stop in and grab one!

Here's a description from Goodreads.com

“I’ve had a most amazing time....”

So begins the Time Traveller’s astonishing firsthand account of his journey 800,000 years beyond his own era—and the story that launched H.G. Wells’s successful career and earned him his reputation as the father of science fiction. With a speculative leap that still fires the imagination, Wells sends his brave explorer to face a future burdened with our greatest hopes...and our darkest fears. A pull of the Time Machine’s lever propels him to the age of a slowly dying Earth.  There he discovers two bizarre races—the ethereal Eloi and the subterranean Morlocks—who not only symbolize the duality of human nature, but offer a terrifying portrait of the men of tomorrow as well.  Published in 1895, this masterpiece of invention captivated readers on the threshold of a new century. Thanks to Wells’s expert storytelling and provocative insight, The Time Machine will continue to enthrall readers for generations to come.
