March Into The Library

The Oconto Falls Community Library is marching into spring. Visions of the Universe, Four Hundred Years of Astronomy will be arriving here in April. We are in the planning stages for the exhibit funded by NASA. We have many things planned for schools and groups. We will have speakers and some fun science programs. Watch the paper, blog or drop in to the library for a list of events. Teachers, if you would like to bring your classes in for the exhibit, call the library and arrange a time and date. All are welcomed. March is also Youth Art Month. Art work started arriving last week and is on display at the library for the month. Artwork is from the Oconto Falls schools, Homeschools and St Anthonys. Youth Art Month Reception will be March 12th. Everyone is invited. At the last Friends of the Library meeting, the group again voted to award two scholarships to graduating seniors from Oconto Falls High School. Students need to apply through the Guidance Office at the High School. Some authors with new books coming out in the next few weeks are J.D. Robb, Robert Parker, Maeve Binchy, Jodi Picoult, Joanne Flukes, Kim Harrison, Therese Fowler, Anne Perry, Laura Lippman, Jonathan Kellerman, Randy Wayne White, John Burnside, Karen Robards and Gena Showalter. These books will all be available through InfoSoup. Add you name to the Holds List. The Library is initiating Junk Food Fridays starting on March 6th 10:00 to 11:00a.m.. Another excellent reason to check out a good book at the Library.
