Upcoming events - July 8th!

You're invited:
Friends Ice Cream Social!

Please join us for a free ice cream social with the Friends of the Library Tuesday, July 8, at 6:00 pm (immediately following the Friends meeting -- see below). We'll gather in the plaza in front of the library for root beer floats and conversation. Special thanks to the Friends for donating the root beer and to A&W of Baraboo for donating the ice cream and accessories!



Friends of the Library Meeting

The Friends of the Library will meet Tuesday, July 8, at 5:30 pm. We'll talk about what's happening at the library this summer and make plans for an exciting fall. Come meet our new officers and re-connect with other members dedicated to fundraising, voluntarism, and advocacy for the library.

Summer Reading Program
Have you registered yet?

We have more than 600 children and teens registered for our youth summer reading programs, sponsored by the Baraboo National Bank, while the adult program is well over 200 registrations, sponsored by Community First Bank. Please sign up (if you haven't already) to record your summer reading -- if we adults collectively read 2,500 books by the end of August, Community First Bank will donate $300 to the library building fund!

Volunteers needed for Book and Bake Sale

Book & Bake Sale
volunteers needed!
Hi, Friends --
The annual Book & Bake Sale starts Wednesday night, and we need your help!
The following shifts are wide open:
Wednesday evening 5 - 8 pm
Thursday afternoon 1 - 4 pm and evening 5 - 8 pm
Any time Friday and Saturday 9 am - 4 pm
The shifts are in half-hour blocks and your job would be
to sit at the "cash and wrap" table. It's easy and fun,
and you'll be helping us earn money for
teen furniture, tech updates, and additions to the book collection.
We could also use some additional bakers to bring packaged home-baked items,
and volunteers to help us pack up Saturday at 4:00 pm.
For those of you who are waiting to see where there are gaps in the schedule
before you sign up ... now is the time to commit!
Baraboo Public Library

Seed Saving 101: Thursday, February 20, 7:00 p.m.
Meet Matt Weaver, plant expert from the Bruce Company in Madison, as he tells us everything we need to know about seed sharing and saving. This is the second program in our new Seed Library project, in which our old card catalog will get a new lease on life! Then you'll be ready to borrow heirloom vegetable seeds to get your garden started this spring. Presented in partnership with the Sauk County Master Gardener Association. FREE.
