Holiday Book Sale

Book donations have been stacking up!
... including 24 boxes of Ringling family books we just received from the Charles Ringling home.
That means we're running out of storage, and we'll never make it until May!
So please join us for our third annual Holiday Book Sale:
Thursday, December 18, 9 am to 8 pm
Friday, December 19, 9 am to 4 pm
Saturday, December 20, 9am to 12:30 pm
Offering used books, DVDs, and music CDs for all ages in all subjects -- just the thing for a cold winter's night.
We'll also be offering more of our beautiful paper lanterns (handmade from vintage books) for sale at $10, $20, and $40 (great teacher gift!).
All proceeds will be used to support library operations.
And if you can spare two hours: we'd be grateful for your help with "cash and wrap" during the sale and packing up afterwards, on Saturday afternoon and Monday morning. Please call Robin at 356-6166 for your choice of hours.
Thank you!

This week's programming


Dear Friends,

We're having two great events at the library this week. Please see details below! 


Thursday, December 11, 7 pm at the library
Tuesday, December 16, 2 pm at Village Booksmith

You'll have two opportunities to hear beloved Baraboo author and naturalist Ken Lange talk about his new book, Song of Place: A Natural History of the Baraboo Hills. Book signing following each talk. At 700 pages and 50 chapters, this comprehensive guide to the area sold out at Ken's first appearance at Village Booksmith.


By popular demand ...

We had so many requests to buy the handmade paper lanterns that decorated the library for A Novel Evening that we are offering them for sale this Saturday, December 13, from 11 am to 1 pm. Made from vintage book pages, the lanterns are priced at $10, $20, and $40; book sculptures are also available at $25 each. Just in time for the holidays! All sales will be added to the fundraiser proceeds to benefit the library.
