Newspaper Column for January 16, 2020

Our holds shelf has been so full lately—pat on the back, Green Lake! If you have questions on how you can get items from other libraries, how the holds process works, how to put materials on hold yourself, or how we can help you get set up with the Favorite Author’s Club please stop by and see us or call the library at 920-294-3572. We would be delighted to help you find the items you are looking for even if they aren’t currently available on our shelves.

A couple of items you may want to consider putting on hold are new to our Library of Things. The first item is a Bright Light Therapy Lamp to help alleviate Seasonal Affective Disorder and the winter blues. Therapy lamps mimic sunlight to help moderate mood, boost energy, and improve focus. If our therapy lamp is currently checked out, then we also have one available in the library for use. The second item is one that the kids will be sure to enjoy: a parachute! Up to 12 kids can each have a handle on the parachute and play popcorn, make waves, make a mushroom, create a fort, and all sorts of other inventive fun. 

Before our Road to the Oscars tour starts up this year (starting Tuesday, January 21st at 6 pm with a matinee showing the folowing Thursday), we have another movie event planned. Join us on Thursdays at 1 pm to see A Star is Born through the ages. We are starting with the 1937 version starring Janet Gaynor & Fredric March on January 17th. Next week on January 24th, we’re showing the 1954 version starring Judy Garland & James Mason. We hope to see you!
