Tolono Public Library News for the Week of October 14, 2018

Welcome to the Tolono Public Library’s weekly newsletter online! This will replace the article that used to run in the County Star newspaper. Please remember to check here every week to see upcoming events, learn about the featured database of the month, and keep up-to-date on new happenings at the library!

Don’t forget to sign up for the Adult Reading Program!

Our first Adult Reading Program is almost half over, but it’s still not too late to sign up! Register to receive your reading log and free prize. Then keep track of the books you read that are checked out at the Tolono Library. Audio Books are ok too! Just make sure you keep track of the titles on the back of your reading log. For every book you read, you earn an entry in our grand prize drawing! (limit 6 entries per person) We will be giving away to two winners (one male one female) two grand prizes of autumn gift baskets filled with fun goodies, including free concessions at the Goodrich Savoy 16! The reading program only lasts until October 31st, so make sure you have your reading logs handed in by the end of the month!

Program Events this Week

We start off the week with Preschool Storytime on Monday, October 15th at 10 am with Miss Emily. This program is for preschoolers and their parent/caregiver. Miss Emily teaches the kids on a variety of different topics every week by using songs, stories, games, and crafts to keep their interest. This week, the theme is Totally Trains! Kids will read different stories with trains, make a “name train” using their names as train cars, and make a thumbprint train craft.

Wednesday, October 17th at 9 am, we will have Coffee Talk with our senior group. This program is for seniors 60 and over. Come by the library and enjoy coffee and conversation during this casual social hour. This is a great opportunity to get to know others in the community. Our group is lively and welcoming, so stop by this Wednesday!

Later Wednesday, kids are welcome to stop by the library for After School Bingo at 3:30. Enjoy some light snacks and play a few rounds of Bingo to earn some prizes.
