You'll be able to sign up starting June 1st. It might look a little different this year, but we have a lot of fun for all ages planned!
Interested in what some of the other area library book clubs are reading each month? Check out the shared calendar!
This program will be outdoors to allow proper social distancing!
Joli Winer from Heartland Honey & Beekeeping Supply will cover aspects of beginning beekeeping during this program. You'll learn what's necessary to do throughout different parts of the year plus the various plants that are in the bloom during each season.
The show is moving outdoors to ensure social distancing, so join us for a July summer concert! We're welcoming Boys of the Prairie for the perfect Celtic music show! The group is from Lawrence, Kansas and plays tunes from Ireland, Scotland, Brittany and beyond.
This is going to be so much fun! Author and storyteller Jane Talbot will be joining us live from Northern Ireland! She'll read a story or two from the book and have a bit of story discussion. Then she'll also discuss the process of collecting folklore, the oral tradition of storytelling, and how one might translate all of that into the written word.
This will be taking place via Zoom, so you will need an invitation to join us. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We will have several physical books you can check out from the library, but this is also available on Hoopla for easy checkout.
Peter Stern is a second generation speaker through the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education. He has been telling his father's story for the last two years. He recently retired as CEO of Currus, Inc. and also serves as President of the Board of Governors of the Ninth Infantry Division Association which is the division his father served in during WWII.
Peter will share his father’s story which is fairly unique. He was born Jewish in 1919 in Berlin, Germany. He experienced much persecution in the 1930s, his father was sent to prison by the Gestapo, he was kicked out of school and his family was broken up. He luckily was able to come to the USA on a visa in August, 1936. While learning English, he completed high school and college in Cincinnati and then joined the Army. He served in the Ninth Infantry Division for all eight military campaigns in North Africa and Europe. Because of his German and French language skills, he interviewed and interrogated German prisoners for much of the war. He was with his division when they liberated the Nordhausen slave labor camp in Germany in April, 1945. He truly is both a survivor of Nazi persecution and a liberator.
