Many of you know our Circulation Manager/ Assistant Librarian/Cataloger - Bonnie Clausen. She has announced she is retiring from the Baldwin Library as of June 7th. We are horribly sad to lose her after so many years of outstanding service, but we wish her well in the next phase of her life. She will miss the wonderful patrons of the Baldwin Library so if you get a chance, come in and say Good-bye.
Thanks to Rochel Karlson for her generous contribution to the library, including her talents for workshops.
Thanks to Karli Kerrschneider for loaning us a collection of fishing flies for our Display case. It’s that time!
Summer Reading Library Program Registration Begins June 10th!
We have a full list of special programs and activities planned for children to help avoid the “summer slide” of losing reading skills when out of school. We’ll make it fun to keep them reading with weekly reading logs and games and prizes. Some big events include performers like Lego Guy and Bug Man, crafts and Coding, and even a traveling mini planetarium! Since this summer is the 50th anniversary of the moon landing in July of 1969, our theme this summer is Space: a Universe of Stories. See our website (baldwinlibrary.org) under Youth Programs for more information, call 715-684-3813 and ask for Molly or Rebecca, or stop by.
Free Family Movie – June 12
The first in a series of 3 summer movies for families will be Wednesday, June 12th at 1:00pm at the First Bank of Baldwin Room (accessible). It will be How to Train Your Dragon 3. Popcorn will be served.
Always forgetting your library card?
If you stop at the library spontaneously and don’t have the right wallet with you, no worries! You can still check out items. Do you know that a picture of your card in your smart phone usually works to scan and check out items here? Or if you scan your drivers’ license in your phone it can work for showing local residence when applying for a new card. Try it!
Sing Along with Susie Q
We have a fun set of items in the library for checking out called Sing Along with Susie Q. They are DVDs with a person singing and playing piano and big print lyrics showing right on the screen so you can sing along. The songs are many favorites from the 1930s to 1970s, both top radio and movie hits and hymns. Great for seniors at a get-together, or for folks with memory issues; music can stimulate memories like nothing else. If one is checked out you can put your name on the waiting list, ask us.
Call 715-684-3813 for more info. We are in the Municipal Bldg.at 400 Cedar St., which is accessible.
All programs are free of charge. Open: M/W/F: 9-6, T/Th: 9-7, Sat. 9-1. Baldwinlibrary.org
