Ladies of the Fjord musical performance

Join us for a fantastic musical experience beginning at 6:30 pm Tuesday, August 21 at the library.

Ladies of the Fjord, a trio of musicians Lora Lee, Karen Rebholz and Carlyce Skjervem, plays bygdedans tunes — country dances that evolved in the isolated valleys of southern Norway, primarily the springar, halling, and gangar.  They also play tunes used in traditional Norwegian weddings, and gamaldans, a European style of couples dance music popular in the 1800s in Norway.  

Wednesday is for early literacy

Join in the fun with Miss Kristine every Wednesday morning in August with library programming for our youngest patrons!

At 9:30 am there's Shake, Rattle & Roll, Baby! These baby music classes provide the skills needed for eventual reading success. Designed especially for babies and their caregivers.

Then at 10 am it's Family Story Time, with books and song for all pre-school youngsters. Make friends, sing, play, write, read, and interact with books.

Book discussion: Hatchet

Our next ALL-AGES book discussion title will be Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. The library will host discussions on this title on Monday, September 10 - join us at NOON or 7 pm.

Brian Robeson, 13 years old and haunted by secret knowledge of his mother’s infidelity, is traveling to visit his father for the first time since the divorce. When his small plane crashes, Brian is the sole survivor, alone in the Canadian wilderness with nothing but his clothing, a tattered windbreaker, and the hatchet his mother gave him as a present. At first consumed by despair and self-pity, Brian slowly learns survival skills.

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

We're selecting discussion books from the PBS series The Great American Read. See the list of 100 titles
