Our Seed Library seeds have arrived, and we have the perfect kickoff event lined up. Join us on Saturday, March 2 at 10am for a Seed Starting program lead by Shelly Rothman of Good Trouble Grove Farm and the Foxhead Regenerative Agriculture Project. All ages are welcome to join us for garden planning tips, seed starting and saving basics, and hands on planting with the seeds of your choice. This program is free and an excellent way to start growing this year!

On Saturday, March 16 at 10am, please join us for a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony experience with Jasmine Foos. Jasmine is originally from Tianjin, China and has lived in Green Lake for over five years. She loves sharing Asian foods, calligraphy, and other traditional cultural experiences. The program will cover information about tea and the cultural significance of the ceremony. Jasmine will walk us through the tea ceremony complete with authentic tea and teacups. Space is limited for this program, please call the library at 920-294-3572 or stop by the front desk to reserve your spot by Wednesday, March 13 to ensure we have enough supplies.

And now a note from the President of the Friends of the Caestecker Public Library, Linda DeNell:

They’re back! Mark your calendars and visit the nearest ATM because we have two Friends book sales for you in March. Carol and crew may have been on vacation last month, but book donations kept coming in. Which means that there is an excellent selection of gently used items just waiting to be discovered. Your first chance to shop is Wednesday afternoon, March 6, from 1-4:00. If you can’t make that one (or one sale just isn’t enough) you can also shop to your heart’s content on Saturday, March 23 from 9-1:00. Bargains are waiting to be had.

Looking for some Sunday afternoon fun with the potential for local bragging rights? Always know the answers on Jeopardy? Love books and snacks? You are just who we’re looking for! The Friends are sponsoring a trivia contest at the library on March 10 from 2-4:00 PM. Your $5 entry fee goes to help support future library programming. Grab a friend or seven, come up with a team name, sign up your team at the library, and get ready to impress your neighbors with your knowledge of books, authors, and how libraries work. Laughs are guaranteed, as are snacks. We look forward to seeing you!
