We’re staying home and socially distancing this summer, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun!
Every kid who signs up for our “Staycation” (Stay at Home Vacation) Summer Reading Program will get to take home weekly craft kits, participate in online contests and activities, and read books to earn a prize.
Don’t forget: the library is open so you can check out books, movies, and more.
Sign up started June 1st— come on in! If you're not comfortable coming in, call or email us to sign up: 920-295-6777.
Because we are practicing social distancing this year, most of our activities will take place online via Zoom or Facebook Live.
On Facebook live, you can comment, but you can’t be seen or heard. Zoom allows you to see and hear other participants, not just the librarian. On Facebook, just RSVP to each Event, and you will be notified when we do a live video.
To join us on Zoom, first make sure you have Zoom downloaded to your smart phone, tablet, or computer. If you are on a computer, you will need a webcam and microphone.
