Please come and join us at 10AM this Saturday, June 17, to hear author Victoria Houston speak. Ms. Houston has written a number of non-fiction books, but is best known as the author of the Loon Lake Mystery Series (17 books strong with an 18th on the way!) Set in the fictional Wisconsin community of Loon Lake, the series heroine is a police chief who is also an ardent fly fisherman. With the help of a retired dentist, she solves murders. Born and raised in Rhinelander, WI, Ms. Houston knows intimately her setting and characters. The books are fun, she’s led a very interesting life and is an engaging and fun speaker. Hope to see you there!
You may think, based on the weather the past few days, that summer has arrived. You would be wrong – it’s not officially summer until the library has its annual Sidewalk Chalk Party and Story Stroll! This coming Tuesday, June 6, starting at 10:30 AM we’ll have face painting, bubbles, (temporary) tattoos, hula hoops, a ton of sidewalk chalk and a whole lot of sidewalk to fill with art, and special visits from McGruff, Beatrix Potter and the Goodhue County Posse horses. You can also take a stroll through John Rich Park and enjoy a story with your walk – this year, we’ll be featuring Moo! by Minnesota author David LaRochelle.
See you on Tuesday!
Lots of great stuff this year both for kids and adults! Please be aware that both the Writers’ Camp and the ExploraDome have limited spaces available, so you’ll want to sign up for those as soon as possible (signup for our other super high demand/limited seating event, the American Girl Tea Party and Fashion Show, isn’t until July 14). Details on all our summer reading activities are at the links above. Please call if you have any questions!
