Preschool Story Time: Preschool age children and their parents or caregivers are invited to join the librarians for stories, music, crafts, games, snacks and much more every other Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. Story Time will be held in the library basement from approximately 10:00-10:45 a.m. We have 7 sessions planned for this winter and early spring. They are as follows:

Book Club -- Geraldine Brook's "People of the Book" will be discussed on Thursday, February 26 at 6:00 pm. New members are always welcome!!! Please contact the library for a copy or order one for yourself by using our online catalog.
Paws to R.E.A.D. Program: The Reading Education Assistance Dog (R.E.A.D.) Program for children is made possible through Healing Paws, Inc located in Fond du Lac. It is a non-profit organization committed to enriching the lives of children and adults in special circumstances, through safe therapeutic interaction with dogs and cats. Studies have shown that reading to therapy animals helps children relax, increases their interest in reading, and improves their reading skills.
Our programs have been a huge success. The next program will be held on Tuesday, March 10 from 5:30-7:00 pm. Handlers and their dogs will work with individual children on a one-on-one basis for about fifteen minutes each. Children may choose library books to read or bring a book from home to read to the dog. PLEASE CALL OR STOP IN TO REGISTER!
Based upon participation, the program will tentatively continue to be held the second Tuesday of each month at the same time. This program is free and open to the public!
February Food For Fines: We will once again host "Food for Fines" during February. For every one non-perishable food item donated, the library will forgive up to a $1.00 fine, with no limit. This can be applied to fines only, and the library material needs to be returned or renewed and not damaged or lost. The food collected will be donated to the Lomira Area Food Pantry. Please check expiration dates. Items with expired dates or upcoming expiration dates in February of 2015 will NOT be accepted! This is a great way to clear your library card and help someone else at the same time!
