Medicare Seminars:  A seminar entitled "Transition Made Simple-Understanding Medicare" will be held at the library on Thursdays, September 25, and October 9 from 3:30-5:00 p.m. Two dates are offered. The program will be the same on both days. This informative and educational session will be conducted by Kathleen Leitner of Physicians Mutual. She will explain how to enroll in Medicare, what Medicare does and does not cover, how you can control your out-of-pocket costs and much more. The seminar will be held in the lower level of the library which is accessible only by stairs. Enjoy refreshments at this free educational program!

Book Club -- Ann Patchett's "State of Wonder" will be discussed on Thursday, September 25 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 first one during the new school year will be on Tuesday, October 14 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!
